Primary School

Welcome to the Primary School: Nurturing Minds, Building Futures

Throughout the Primary years, we cultivate more than just academic excellence; we foster a vibrant community where every individual thrives. Rooted in our values of compassion, honesty, kindness, excellence, and mutual respect, we create an inclusive atmosphere where all stakeholders feel valued and heard.

Fairview (Prep-Year 2): Step into the dynamic world of Fairview, where curiosity ignites learning and creativity flourishes. Our early years program is designed to spark a love for exploration while laying the foundation for essential literacy and numeracy skills. Through interactive experiences and collaborative projects, our youngest learners develop critical thinking and communication skills essential for navigating the world around them.

Cumberland (Year 3-6): In Cumberland, students embark on a journey of self-discovery and global citizenship. Through student-centered learning experiences and interdisciplinary projects, we empower our students to think critically, act compassionately, and embrace challenges with confidence. Our state-of-the-art facilities provide a rich environment for hands-on learning, from STEM exploration and the Kitchen Garden Program, to creative expression in the arts, languages and physical education.

Building Character, Embracing Values: Guided by our Christian ethos, we instil values of cooperation, tolerance, and responsibility in every student. Our partnership with parents ensures open communication and mutual support, creating a holistic approach to education that extends beyond the classroom.
