Our well-resourced school is set in large grounds with room for our students to run and play. We have recently undertaken significant work to improve our already fantastic grounds. We have a brand-new turfed area, with basketball and netball hoops. We access Sporting Schools Grants to encourage our students to develop skills in a variety of sports.
We recently developed our nature-based play area. This large, natural play area allows student to explore nature, through investigating and building, students gain confidence and curiosity. We also have developed and constantly work on our BMX jump track that the students can use during school time.
Outdoor learning, creating curious and confident learners is paramount for our school. We have designed an outdoor classroom that is protected by a shade sail. This allows leaning opportunities in nature and caters for all students.
Inside we have large classrooms that are also available to the community for projects and meetings, a well-stocked library and numerous withdrawal spaces for students to work independently or in groups. The school also offers Breakfast Club 5 days a week.
We are committed to providing the best educational outcomes for all students and in particular building a strong foundation in English and Mathematics in multi age classrooms. Our broader curriculum includes Humanities (Geography and History) and the following Specialist Programs:
