Our Beliefs


We believe:


  • Positive teacher-student relationships, high expectations and excellent classroom practice are essential for student success
  • Every child has the right to a safe and inclusive learning environment regardless of socio-economic status, cultural diversity, physical, intellectual or emotional development
  • Our focus is on developing the whole child – socially, emotionally, academically, creatively and physically
  • All children, given the appropriate assistance and encouragement can fulfil their potential in all areas of the curriculum
  • Learning programs need to acknowledge and build on where students are at with their learning, to be culturally and developmentally appropriate and have real-life application
  • A culture of active and open communication between staff, students, parents and the broader community supports student engagement and achievement.
