Independent learning and socialisation are encouraged with dedicated Primary hub break-out areas.  

Our approach to education is holistic, encouraging and supporting each individual student to not only learn but to personally develop through specialised classes in wellbeing and spirituality. The GROW program (Growing Responsibility for your Own Wellbeing) allows teachers to identify and support each student individually at their point of need.
