  • School Vision

    Grateful, Respectful and Compassionate Canberrans

  • School Mission

    Care. Aspire. Nurture. We care for our students like our own children. We aspire to give our best in all we do. We nurture grateful, respectful and compassionate Canberrans.

  • School Philosophy, Culture and Ethos

    Values education is of utmost importance to us. As such, we have aligned our programmes to the school values, "Gratitude, Respect and Compassion" through Character and Citizenship Education as well as service learning programmes. We aim to develop Canberrans to be grateful children, respectful learners and compassionate citizens. In line with our motto, "Challenge, Conquer, Contribute", we seek to create opportunities for our students to gather valuable insights that will guide them in their life journey. This will be a lasting legacy we leave our students even after they have graduated.
