Our Team

Our professional, university-educated teachers and support staff encourage students to develop a love of learning and a desire to succeed. They maintain the highest integrity and concern for your child’s wellbeing.

The Principal is responsible for the educational leadership and management of our school. If you would like to speak to the principal please contact us to make an appointment.

Our school administrative staff can answer inquiries or direct you to the appropriate staff member for help, however, there is a lot of information on this website too, the search function is a great way to find things, check for the magnify glass at the top right on every page.
