Apple Distinguished School


Our use of technology to enhance the teaching of basic skills along with the ability to research, select appropriate tools for learning, problem solve and work collaboratively all supported the recognition of our school.  We recognise that our children are citizens of the digital age, and we intend to provide them with the skills and concepts needed to survive in a future that we can only imagine.
