A future in which all students can achieve their full potential.
As parents, staff, principal and community we work together to serve the interests of all the children within the school community now and in the future. We are dedicated to enriching our children’s learning environment by striving to improve achievement and character building; strengthening community involvement; being a forum for learning about the school’s educational programs and discussing matters of interest or concern to parents; communicating awareness throughout the parental community; and allocating school council fund raised monies using established spending priorities as a guide to enhance the learning environment of our children within the school community.
