Our enrolment numbers are small compared to other schools in the Cairns area which gives our students the best opportunity to learn and grow as individuals, while being supported by a team of dedicated teachers, specialists and support staff, who know each and every student.
Our curriculum focus areas are English, Mathematics and Science complemented by the other Key Learning Areas, Humanities and Social Sciences (HASS), the Arts, Health and Physical Education, and Technology.
We place a strong emphasis on the teaching of reading as it provides the fundamental building blocks upon which life long learning is constructed.
A committed staff supported by student families and the broader community have enabled students to excel in academic programs, sporting areas, choral music programs and other extra-curricular activities.
Our mission is to provide students with an environment in which to achieve quality learning outcomes. The diverse cultural identity within the school is a strong foundation to providing a supportive caring environment for children to achieve academically.
The school motto 'Respecting Ourselves, Caring for Others' means that we set high standards in developing self esteem and caring for each other as proud individuals, school and community members.
We endeavour to ensure that every student reaches his or her potential in physical, social, emotional and moral development.
We recognise though, that our focus is literacy and numeracy and that Prep and Primary provide the fundamental building blocks upon which life long learning is constructed.
Our school focuses on 5 keys values:
The acronym for this is ROCKS. Students in our school, and members of the broader community, know that our school 'ROCKS'.
