Student Life

We are constantly striving to ensure the best possible teaching and learning environment which integrates educational philosophy and practice while also providing our students wellbeing and co-curricular needs.

In addition to our spectacular beachfront location which enables us to make extensive use of our ‘Classroom on the Beach’, our School features facilities to enhance our teaching and learning activities at each age and stage of development and create a beautiful, practical and welcoming environment for our students.

We offer a variety of activities which allow students to develop their particular talents, share common interests and gain wider experiences. Our extensive co-curricular program aims to provide exciting activities that will stimulate an interest in school life as well as allowing students to challenge themselves by participating in new activities.

For those students interested in enterprise activities we have a Junior Enterprise Program for Years 2 – 6 and a Senior Enterprise Program for Years 7 – 12 which operate out of our Enterprise Academy. Students participate in Enterprising projects including financial literacy, starting their own businesses, marketing, sales and more.
