Engage learners to Excel in life and Embrace Leadership to Enhance our Local and global society.


We are a school Where Children Excel by developing leaders with character and a passion for lifelong learning.


We believe that:

The Character Counts Pillars of Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring and Citizenship are essential qualities to model and instill in our students.

The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People are the foundation for developing leaders.

All individuals are valuable and can make meaningful contributions.

A caring and compassionate learning environment will support the needs of the whole child and inspire all to reach their full potential.

Leaders are life-long learners.
