We provide an encouraging, nurturing and supportive learning environment that promotes academic excellence.
Our staff are committed to excellence in both teaching and learning. We emphasise mutual respect of our students that values and fosters the partnership among staff, students and families. We have a student-centred approach to teaching and learning that tracks and mentors students, teaches explicit skills to maximise learning, recognises academic achievement and improvement and encourages reflective learning. We aim for each student to embrace a love of learning and to use his gifts and opportunities to make a positive difference in society.
