Our Curriculum

We provide a comprehensive and integrated curriculum in English, Mathematics, Health and Physical Education, The Arts, Science, Technology, and the Study of Society and the Environment.  Special programs include Reading Recovery, Bike Ed, Camps and Excursions, and an extensive Swimming program.

We provide opportunity for both independent and co-operative team learning aimed at developing decision-making, problem-solving, critical and creative thinking skills.

In addition to the traditional curriculum areas students develop knowledge, skills and behaviours within the interdisciplinary areas of thinking, use of ICT and communication.
