Our students are supported to develop positive and productive relationships within the school and community and to achieve their personal best.

The continued development of the intellectual, emotional, social, physical and spiritual sides of each student is important to us. We know this requires a partnership with families and the local community. We aim to provide a caring, safe and respectful school where the following values are evident:

  • Perseverance
