Teachers of this program will develop highly personalised learning plans to facilitate access to age-appropriate curriculum.

The teaching/learning program is effectively maintained by an experienced, capable staff, most of whom have attained ‘Senior Teacher’ status.

Technology is used extensively as a tool to support the teaching/learning program with Interactive Whiteboards in all primary classes. The school is fully networked with 16 desktop computers housed in the library, with four desk top computers in each of the 11 classrooms.
