The local day care centre is situated directly opposite the school and transition to prep programmes occur in term 4 each year. School hours are from 8:50am until 3pm.
There are three small schools in our catchment area and we work closely together as well as being part of the Ulysses Cluster of schools.
Our school motto is “Expand your horizons” and we endeavour to do this this through academic learning, music, sport, social events and community participation.
