This success begins right from our Primary School level with our strong NAPLAN testing system as well as the external testing systems we apply. Our Primary School has had a number of children who have competed at Combined Independent Schools competitions in athletics swimming and cross country running in the past few years. We have had many outstanding athletes represent at State national and International level on both an individual level and as a school. We are also very proud of our children’s participation rates in sports on Saturdays. Each term anumber of teams compete well against other schools in a range of sports. All these pursuits help us to help parents nurture and develop children who are not just well-educated but are also well-rounded young people who are ready to serve and to lead.
