We are a Play is the Way school that implements a behaviour education approach to support every individual child to ‘do the right thing because it is the right thing to do,’ and to show our Golden Rule of, ‘treat others as you would like to be treated.’

We regularly use Play is the Way games to support our students to practice and display our School Values of – Friendliness, Good Manners, Courage, Tolerance, Persistence/Resilience and Compassion an all aspects of their school learning.
