OUR SCHOOL

We would like to create and environment where children will acquire and develop the necessary knowledge and skill to become independent, confident learners – where they will develop their self-esteem to enable them to express and achieve their full potential. We will endeavour to broaden each child’s experience to help them become spiritual, well-balanced and tolerant individuals with a respect for themselves and others.
