About Us

Our school’s vision can be summed up in three words: Happy, Safe, Learn. Since the school opened in 2008, we have strived to make sure that everyone within our community feels part of that vision. We believe that everyone – that is all children, all families and all staff – have the right to be happy, be safe and be able to learn.

Emer's class took full advantage of the glorious weather today. We had a picnic outside for Rebecca's birthday. We really enjoyed the delicious cakes. Then we checked out all the summer growth in the school garden. To finish the day we decided to have Golden Time outside. What a great day!
