Welcome to Our School
We pride ourselves on being an inclusive and progressive school community. Our school community embraces over 30 different cultures, various family configurations/types, has a number of families that receive support from the government and students who are funded under the Program for Students with Disabilities. We operate a free breakfast club 5 days a week and have access to free lunches and food hampers for families.
Currently our school operates 4 co-teaching Learning Spaces – Foundation, Yr1/2, Yr3/4 & Yr5/6. Our Learning Spaces are supported by the specialist areas of The Arts, Health & Physical Education and Science/Urban Farm. All Learning Spaces also teach Resilience Rights & Respectful Relationships. Our LOTE (Language Other Than English) will be changing to Arabic & Vietnamese, with students able to elect which language they would like to learn. eLearning is well resourced across the school and supported in Learning Spaces through access to a technician and iPads, large portable screens with AppleTV, laptops, robotics, 3D printers and other devices. Our Yr3/4 and 5/6 Learning Spaces operate in a school provided 1:1 iPad learning environment.
We have a combination of recently graduated and experienced staff members who are friendly, approachable, diverse and committed to achieving the best learning outcomes for all of our students. We work in a true co-teaching environment, with creative use of teaching spaces across our school, requiring collective responsibility for the entire cohort of students at each multi-age year level.
Our staff proactively develop positive mental health and wellbeing by promoting relationships and a sense of belonging for all. We are a Respectful Relationships lead school and are a blue level School Wide Positive Behaviour Support school. We have our own Wellbeing Team of professionals including a Social Worker, Teacher and ES.
