Prep students enjoy the best of both worlds, starting off their school experience with peers of their own age to assist in developing social and communications skills and to help foster a feeling of a safe and nurturing environment. They prepare for the future flexible learning experience by merging with our Year One/Two for different curriculum areas and working with Year Five in a specialised ‘Buddies’ program.

It is the understanding that all students should be fully active members of their school community and that all professionals in a school share responsibility for their learning. Cultural and indigenous immersions and perspectives also see our students build on creating a more harmonious world that teaches them to be compassionate and understanding towards others.
