Vision Statement

This school is a centre of learning where we recognise and respect the individual, his talents, strengths and unique differences.  We value the opportunity to create and nurture a climate that promotes human potential. 

We promote a spirit of inquiry, openness and honesty. 

We recognise that process is as important as product.  Our curriculum, therefore, is less a set of activities prepared in advance, than an emergent response to individual needs and challenges and to important questions and incidents.
