Our Philosophy is to try to make sure that there is a reason for every child to come to school every day. We want our students to develop into life-long learners who are confident and competent. Our staff is caring, positive and confident in our students’ abilities to perform at their best levels. We know that every child can learn, but not necessarily on the same day, at the same rate. We teach children at their level and push them (gently) as far as we can. Mission Statement: To ensure excellence in education for every learner that prepares each with the knowledge,skills and personal responsibility to succeed in a rapidly changing global society.
