We try to use positive guidelines designed to develop students into good citizens.  We encourage common sense, respect of others and property, and confidence in one’s own ability.  We firmly believe in students facing the consequences of their actions.  We encourage students in decision making. Classes will develop a set of agreed rules to follow. The school has a behaviour management plan where acting and thinking responsibly is the focus. If teachers are concerned about a student’s behaviour their family


We do value everyone’s point of view. We would like any concerns to be shared with the class teacher, a staff member, the principal or the BOT.  It is our endeavour to follow up any concerns shared through the appropriate channels.  There is a Complaints Policy.  We enjoy a high level of client satisfaction, however, we realise that we cannot please all people all the time.  A copy of our complaints procedure and all our policies are available from the

Emergency Contact

Parents are asked to provide an emergency telephone number other than their home or workplace number, e.g. Grandparent, close friend, relative or neighbour. Please remember to advise us of any changes to these numbers immediately, as it is important to have correct information in case of emergency. Throughout the year the whole school practices what to do in the event of a fire, earthquake, lockdown or other emergency plans.


In order that stationery needs are quickly available and are standardized, we ask that children purchase supplies from the school office.  All stationery is sold at competitive rates. The teacher will advise you of your child’s stationery requirements.  Stationery is sold to the children from the office before school – 8.30 – 8.50am
