Our Values

The school’s ongoing commitment to providing a safe, secure and stimulating learning environment for all students supports the development  of each child by providing high quality and diverse learning opportunities. A significant emphasis continues to be placed on the development of the whole child through the provision of a differentiated curriculum with an explicit focus on Literacy and Numeracy from Foundation to Year 6. We share a strong commitment to, and a responsibility for, ensuring a safe, empowering and nurturing learning environment for our students.
Building positive relationships is strengthened by our school community values of Mutual Respect, Resilience, Responsibility, Honesty/Integrity and Caring/Empathy  and enables our students to be curious, resilient, resourceful and reflective learners.
