The staff enjoys excellent support from the Board and parents.
Our school generally teaches with 2 teams or syndicates focussing on the needs of the children at different year levels.

Our junior team includes our New Entrants to Year 4 classes which focus on learning to read and numeracy skills, providing our children with a firm and strong foundation to build upon in the future.

Our senior team from year 5 to 8, builds upon these skills, growing them into independent and confident lifelong learners, ready for high school.
