Students enjoy the benefits of using computers for daily learning. Quality literacy and numeracy programs are provided at each year level, with literacy integrated across all learning areas. Learning programs are effective, exciting, contemporary and challenging.
The Upper Primary (Years 4 to 6) program aims to provide a caring, secure and stimulating learning environment, to develop self-confidence in each student, with tolerance of and concern for others. The program is a balanced curriculum, which aims to challenge each student to achieve and celebrate their personal best. Year 5 and 6 students enjoy the benefits of personal laptop computers.
