Vision for Learning

​Our school values every child as a learner. Learners learn in different ways, in different settings, and at different rates. Learning is most effective when it involves active partnerships with parents and carers, peers, teachers, school and community members. Our vision for teaching and learning, which underpins our curriculum, highlights the value of relationships and communication, promotion of excellence, building success and recognises the importance of our learning environment.
