Our School

Philosophy

We aim to create an educational environment of respect, trust and acceptance of each individual.

We strive to achieve educational excellence in offering each student the opportunity to develop their individual abilities to the full. In our educational programs we are committed to developing each facet of the child – spiritual, physical, intellectual, social, emotional, aesthetic and a sense of citizenship.

We believe that the child will thrive when parents and teachers hold the same beliefs and values regarding the education of the child and value highly the growth in faith of each child.

We recognize that each child has an individual rate of growth and development, achieving mastery levels in each of the Curriculum Areas at different rates and in different stages.

We insist that attitude and effort are as important as achievement.

We model, clarify and expect appropriate behaviour at all times which values the rights of a person to feel safe, be respected and enjoy life.

We foster in the students a love of learning and the skills to become an independent lifelong learner.
