We encourage our students to be active, independent learners with sound values that are developed in a school community that demonstrates our Catholic identity based on the Gospels and teachings of the Church.

We welcome parents into our learning community and value their significant contribution to the education of their children. We promote open and honest communication and provide development opportunities for parents to enhance their role as the prime educators of children.
Our classrooms are modern, appealing and well-resourced. We have trained Literacy and Numeracy intervention teachers and teacher aides to assist children who experience difficulty in these crucial areas.
