Due to the fact that all our students from Kinder to Grade 10 are on the one site we are able to provide a smooth transition program for students moving from primary school to secondary school. A feature of our school is having a small group of teachers responsible for the teaching of core subjects.

All Grade 8 students study English, HASS (Humanities and Social Science), Mathematics, Science, German, Art, Foods, Design Technologies and Health and Physical Education.
