Our purpose

Our small class size is an opportunity to provide individualised and personalised learning with a high staff to student ratio. We nurture and guide the social, emotional and academic development of every student. Our multi-age, family grouping of students provides the optimum learning environment to launch successful citizens into the
future. The holistic, child-responsive curriculum targets the capabilities, dispositions and academic foundations to best prepare learners to work in diverse environments.
We celebrate the social and emotional benefits our small school offers. Our senior students thrive on the opportunity to develop leadership positions within the school community. They reflect on their academic progress as they become role models to their younger classmates. Junior students look up to, and strive to emulate, the older students providing support and intrinsic motivation to improve in all areas. We embrace a student centred approach to learning. Our children mix freely with all age groups, working and playing together. They learn the joys of cooperation, negotiation and communication which leads to good citizenship and strength of character.
