Our school

Our school is located in a rapidly expanding residential area south of Cairns. Our purpose is to provide opportunities for all students to achieve their potential, to be the best they can be. Our vision is to be a high performing school in which every student is a successful learner.

We achieve this by providing programs that cater for the individual needs of all students, developing in students the skills and desire for lifelong learning, providing a safe, supportive and inclusive environment for all students supporting all staff in their development of professional competencies and establishing positive and productive partnerships with all stakeholders.
