Set on the edge of the
outback, surrounded by stunning, red plains and hills, ours is the
last remaining school on the Barrier Highway.
Our school is
very well resourced and has access to the town swimming pool. Our mission is to nurture the whole child within the support of
a harmonious, rich environment. There is an emphasis on learning via
play and the arts. The arts develop teamwork, confidence and
performance skills. Outdoor play develops social and problem solving
We value curiosity, creativity, honesty, respect, persistence and cooperation.
Our main emphasis is literacy
and maths. Science, Japanese, the arts and circus also receive a
strong focus. Every child in the school can ride a unicycle and
perform the pois. This year, we have children involved in SAPSASA
Our small numbers and range of year levels, ensures that work is set at the level of each child. The school heavily subsidises excursions and camps, so that students are not disadvantaged by distance. There are two major philosophies underpinning our pedagogy: Steiner, emphasising feeling, thinking and doing and Emilio Reggio., emphasising a deeper, connected curriculum.
