Our teachers believe in a friendly and warm environment where respect is shown towards each of us as an individual.  Our school is part of the community where parents, friends and citizens from the area will join us during concerts, celebrations, trips, services and fundraising activities for the school.  Parents are also invited to offer their help/support in order to enrich the teaching of subjects within the curriculum.

We believe in helping children and people who are less
fortunate than ourselves through raising funds towards various charities and worthy causes.

Our teachers understand the importance of nurturing and teaching self-respect, as well as respect towards others and property.  We are constantly encouraged to be aware of our school's guidelines.  Rewards as well as progress are noted in our "Record Books", on our "Tree of Pride" and our "Achievement Chair".

The community is supported by the school; we share our building during the day and in the evenings.
