We set students up to be lifelong learners, fostering their curiosity, creativity and inquisitive nature. Students develop their independence through a range of hands-on learning opportunities. Connections are developed through play, exploration and our whole school wellbeing program.
Students participate in a structured literacy approach, developing phonological knowledge and components of emerging writers.

They participate in the following specialist subjects The Arts, Physical Education and Science taught by dedicated specialist teachers.
