Our School Vision ‘School with a View’ directs our thinking, planning and teaching, and creates our focus towards providing quality education for our 21st Century thinkers and learners.

The principles underpinning our vision focus us toward developing creative and critical thinkers who are lifelong learners, as well as growing a community of learners working in partnership and developing positive relationships. We provide a quality curriculum program based on the NESA requirements for schools.
