We are a school where ‘town meets country’. The school has been serving the local community since 1855. We enjoy a rich and proud history and we are focused on providing our students with an exciting future. The staff work hard to ensure the community’s voice and local content are evident in the school’s curriculum. We believe that students learn best when learning is engaging and in context to their own lives.
