School Programs

  • High Academic Standards - as evidenced by:
  1.        School results consistently above those of "like schools" in State standards and State mean standards
  2.        Individual student results in Australian University School Competitions in Science, Maths, English, Computer and Writing - numerous High Distinctions (top 2 % of state) and Distinctions (top 10% of state).
  • House System - all students are placed in one of 4 houses, with all family members in the same house.


  • Student Leaders - senior students are elected to positions of responsibility such as School Captains, House Captains and monitors. There is also a Student Representative Council - elected from students in Grade 3 to 6.


  • Whole School Assemblies - held each Friday afternoon, where student achievements are acknowledged and celebrated.


  • Whole School Production - held biennially, all students take part in our school play held in the theatre of Forest Hill Secondary College.


  • Grade 6 Graduation and Award Night.


  • School Uniform - all students wear our school uniform in the colors of royal blue and gold. This has a unifying effect for students as well as being economical for parents.


  • Buddy System - this not only allows the Prep students to get to know some of the "big kids" in the school, but also improves communication skills, boosts self-esteem and gives the senior students an opportunity to act as role models.


  • Code of Conduct - clearly outlines behavioural expectations and boundaries for the well being of all students.


  • School Choir and Recorder Ensemble. 


  • Kitchen Garden Program - Level 3 and 4 students grow produce in the garden and then cook it in the extremely well equipped school kitchen.

  • Garden and Outdoor Learning Classroom - the garden provides a great play space at lunchtimes, where students can use their imagination and creativity to truly "play". Science classes are conducted in this "outdoor" classroom, while the Jan Gorr Learning Centre provides shelter in very hot, cold or wet weather.

 

  • Parent Participation - is always welcomed, whether through formal means such as School Council or less formally in the P & F and classroom
