our Positive Behaviour for Learning we teach and model the personal attributes
of being safe, being responsible and being respectful. These qualities underpin
our relationships within the school. Our school also has some of the most

Every student has access to these resources and to the information available
through the Internet.
learning programs cater to the needs of every student no matter what their
learning requirements. We have programs to assist students with learning
difficulties through our Learning Support Programs. We have programs to inspire
our brightest students and challenge them to produce their best work. We have
programs focussing on reading, writing and maths designed to improve the
achievement of all students across all year levels. We believe that every
student can learn and we have designed learning programs and use teaching
strategies that will maximise this learning.

with specific financial support for our technology program, our literacy
program, grounds beautification and landscaping, and our library resources. Our
