Starting with its roots in the book of knowledge, the river gum shows vigorous growth in its youth, flourishing maturity and a robust long life. 

Our student enrolment is around 450 children from Foundation year to Year 6. Over the last 8 years we have introduced new teaching strategies including coaching to best meet the learning needs of our diverse student group.

Our main aim in the early years is to establish foundation skills necessary for further learning. The development of literacy and numeracy skills is of prime importance. We expect that all children will establish, to the best of their ability, the skills essential for success. Students are provided with a friendly learning environment that promotes independence, excellence and getting along with each other.

Our School expectations are THINK RESILIENCE, THINK COMMUNITY, THINK RESPECT and THINK EXCELLENCE. The development of appropriate inter-personal and personal skills is also very important and we work effectively with our families to strengthen the children’s social development.
