Starting school is an exciting time for children and parents. Our Foundation (Prep) Transition Program aims to get children and parents familiar with our school facilities, environment and teachers. This is achieved through several fun and engaging learning sessions where the children have the opportunity to socialise and make connections with their peers.


We are committed to providing a safe, positive, caring and welcoming school that caters for all individual differences and needs and educates the whole child. Our school has a wonderful community feel, that continues to be developed and nurtured under the premise that, ‘It takes a village to raise a child.’ We encourage and enjoy family participation in all areas of school life to develop a true partnership in learning.


We look forward to welcoming you and your child to our wonderful school.
