We believe it is important to educate our children to be strong in the basics of literacy and numeracy and to understand and be capable of socializing well with others, to develop strong values and to enjoy learning – to have fun!
Our curriculum is designed to emphasize reading and writing as well as develop strong numeracy skills, particularly in the junior school (years 1-3). In the senior school (years 4-6) we aim to build on these skills to develop strong confident communicators who can apply the basics to expand their learning.
We apply a strong inquiry-learning and research skills base to our learning at all levels and encourage children to use the many wonderful resources available to them in and around the community – teachers, parents, grandparents, local experts, books, computers and other technologies – to find the answers to questions and research information. We will give the children real and relevant contexts for their learning, and this will often involve trips outside the classroom and the school. This is supported by a strong information literacy and ICT base. The school is well equipped with up to date technology and equipment to ensure equitable access for all children in our community.
Within the school our teachers provide learning environments that are bright, interesting and stimulating – school needs to be a great place to be.
