Our school

The school’s philosophy

Our attitudes and actions are a result of our thinking. We face choices each and every minute of every day and our future depends on making choices that are responsible and lead to positive outcomes. This is a living document, subject to change as we learn and grow, as people and as an organisation. It is the guide to our current practices and a determining factor in the future decisions and choices that we make.
