Learning Opportunities

In our Primary School, your child will have the opportunity to develop in a variety of areas such as music, sport, and technology while discovering the benefits of serving their communities.

From Grade 4, camps provide opportunities to build confidence and relationships.

While Upper Primary students become buddies with ELC and Reception children.

We encourage parents to get involved in our Primary School and help in class activities or go out on excursions held throughout the year.

Christian values

By building Christian character in your son or daughter, we strive to equip them to fulfil their potential, academically, emotionally, socially and physically. Your child will be encouraged to shine and be all that God has made them to be. To build fun and engaging learning environments we have implemented ‘Fun Fridays’. Every second Friday afternoon, with the help of parents and friends, students get to participate in a variety of activities from arts to games and building.

A biblical worldview forms the foundation for rich and diverse learning and allows students to develop enhanced thinking skills and enthusiastically engage in the joys of discovery.

Kitchen Garden

Our Kitchen Garden Program, which includes an Aqua and Hydroponics setup, is a weekly activity for students to learn about food production, cooking, and sustainability. It’s the perfect complement to our Business Enterprise Program which teaches Upper Primary and Middles School students to operate a small business.
