The following values are seen as central to the life of our school and provide a strong foundation for social, emotional learning, value education, and high expectations for academic teaching and learning, pride in our academic achievements and learning environment, and the provision of a safe and secure learning atmosphere. Students are encouraged to see themselves as citizens of one world whose prosperity and wellbeing depends on human harmony and cooperation.

Primary school marks an important milestone for young children who finally feel like part of a “big” school. In many ways, primary school is a year of important transition- children leave behind much of the play & dive in to developing, deeper academic skills. It is the level where children learn to read, invent spellings, begin to grasp more abstract mathematical concepts and tries to find their own answers to questions about the natural world. They move slowly from a world of play in to a world of symbols and concepts so their education should be such that facilitates academic, social & developmental growth through a variety of enjoyable experiences. Play based instructions are imparted which not only enables them to have fun but it also encourages interactive and cooperative learning, passion for discovery and a foundation for later learning experiences.
