Our academic, cultural and sporting programs engage students in a wide range of quality learning experiences. Our purpose is excellence in teaching and learning, student wellbeing and student engagement.
Our goals are for students to engage with their learning, that every student is known, valued and cared for, and to provide all students with a strong foundation in literacy and numeracy. The school encourages students to be constructive, self–regulated learners who are confident and creative individuals, with the personal resources for future success and wellbeing.
