Teaching Beliefs

Life long learners:

We believe it is important that our students develop the attributes to thrive in what will be a constantly changing world. We encourage risk taking while fostering the skills of managing self. We promote children to be thinkers, problem solvers and users of information to solve issues to improve their own and others' lives.

Learning is engaging, varied, relevant, broad, rich and fun:

We believe it is important that our classroom lessons have:
  • Variety
  • Cater to learning styles
  • Have an authentic purpose
  • Connect on a deeper level through recognising and drawing upon personal experience and cultural backgrounds
  • Are child centred while drawing upon the benefits of both personal inquiry and discovery coupled with solid guided teaching principles
  • High expectations 
  • Draw upon community input, ideas and expertise
  • Weave through and develop key competencies and values 
  • Foster the notion of creating life long learners
  • Provide additional tuition to develop language for English as a second language learners
  • All of our programmes are hand selected based on the evidence of success in school and experts in the field of academia along with what we know is suitable for our children in the context of our school based on behaviour, culture, interest and learning needs. 
We believe it is vitally important that our students and parents feel our school is a safe, inclusive and caring learning community that embraces and fosters strong family and community input.

We expect children to do their best:

We believe it is very important that our students come to the realisation that it is their responsibility to do their personal best in whatever they undertake.

Tip For Parents

Give your child every opportunity to read to you daily. Ten minutes of reading five times a week = 50 minutes of reading time a week.

If you did this for a minimum of 35 weeks a year we have your child engaging in text for 29 hours extra every year! That 29 hours helps your child read better because they do more miles, are exposed to many words, and importantly are exposed to many ideas through the text.

It is a win - win for all concerned!
