Our school strives to bring out the best in all our students. By creating a safe and stimulating environment we seek to encourage our students to make the most of their opportunities. We plan to cater for all students, responding to their individual needs.
We aim to be consistent and fair in the way we work with students and look to work with our parents in ways that meet their expectations.
Our focus is learning. We want our students to succeed.
Our school is a leader in the area of behaviour management and has in place an excellent pastoral care program. Literacy and numeracy are given the highest priority and technology features prominently in our curriculum.
The educational program at our school is rich and varied. Our School Farm and Sports Centre have no equal in this state and we put enormous energy into improving and maintaining the way the school looks and feels.
More students would like to attend our school than there are places available. As a result the School Council has determined that we limit the size of the school to 450 students. We believe that about 110 students per grade will ensure that our teachers and students know one another well and the grade structure, the basis of our pastoral care program, can be effective. A school of 450 is manageable - it gives the school community the power to exercise initiative, make decisions and take action in areas of concern. We are able to know and be known by each other. These relationships are very important, they are at the heart of successful schooling.
We want to ensure that all students who leave us having completed grade 10 will go on to either full time education or a suitable job.
We seek parental involvement in all aspects of our school and have in place a number of programs to further this ideal. We want our parents and the wider community to have ownership of their school and feel happy with the way it works.
