Our school curriculum is based on the Australian Curriculum with a high emphasis on Literacy and Numeracy. Specialist teachers cover Physical Education and Music. A Flying Start/Resource teacher supports learning in classrooms. Teacher Assistants also provide additional support to students from Kindergarten to Grade 6. Sport and Outdoor Education are also features of the upper primary program, and the school also runs Active After School Communities programs. Visiting performances and excursion opportunities are contained within the school program and involve all classes Kinder- Grade 6. Celebration of achievement is prominent throughout the school with regular assemblies at which classes take turns to showcase their work.
Our behaviour management and supportive school environment policy is based upon Positive Behaviour Support which focuses strongly on the reward of positive and acceptable behaviours, to encourage children to make appropriate choices.
