Welcome to our school website.

Our school strives to provide its students for life and living and to foster an enthusiasm to seek further education. Every effort is made to provide a curriculum suitable to the abilities, aptitude and interest of the children.

It aspires to excellence in all things by nurturing high standards of discipline, punctuality, and academic excellence and to develop an appreciation of and enjoyment of aesthetic activities including music, visual arts, dance, drama and language.

In co-operation with the child’s home, it strives to assist in the development of the whole person, based on personal responsibility, respect for others, respect for property, respect for individual differences, views and opinions.

It seeks to dismantle prejudices and assists children in dealing with conflict and differences.

We see our school, not as an institution but as a close knit community, where pupils, parents, teachers, management board and ancillary staff work together in an atmosphere of harmony, friendship and mutual respect. We recognise the parent as the child’s primary and principal educator and the teacher’s role as equal and complementary
