In catering for the diversity of student needs, the school provides support for students with English as a second language and students with learning difficulties. An opportunity classes for academically gifted children in Years 5 and 6, from our own school as well as other district schools, produces outstanding student outcomes.

Our main focus is on student competencies in the 6 key learning areas of english, mathematics, science and technology, HSIE (human society and its environment), creative and practical arts, as well as PDHPE (personal development, health and physical education). In addition, the school also has a strong emphasis on student welfare and leadership, through pupil participation in a peer support program and the student representative council, as well as library monitors and sporting house captains.
