From the smallest Kindergarten child to the most experienced staff member, all are seeking to 'grow in learning relationships.' Knowing each child and how they learn and what matters to them is important and guides the pastoral care and planning by staff. With a commitment to providing a creative and rigorous curriculum, staff work as professional learning teams to offer opportunities where students question, explore and test their thinking. Solving real-world problems through STEM initiatives is a feature of all learning. Click this link for more information on the school.
