This is a lovely school in which mutual care and academic excellence are central to everything they do. The staff base comprises a very supportive team who work together to promote successful outcomes for all students through the provision of a positive, safe, and vibrant learning environment which engenders self-esteem, social confidence, and a healthy lifestyle.

Similarly, the spiritual and cultural aspects of learning are an important part of the life of the school, to which all areas of the curriculum and school community contribute. Students are encouraged to reflect upon tolerance, specialised understanding, respect, and compassion and understand right and wrong.
