Do you have any bullying?

This depends on how you define bullying. If this means physical stand-over tactics of big children over small children or of gang-type behavior, then the answer is no. There is no tolerance of bullying behavior. However, like any school, we have the usual occasional episodes of children falling out with each other and on other occasions, minor issues like lunch thefts.

How do I know how my child is doing?

We have meet the teacher interviews in February and July, and formal reports in July and December. However, you are encouraged to keep in close communication with the teacher at any time and arrange a meeting with the teacher, syndicate leader or principal at any time you are concerned.

What are the strengths of the school?

Strong discipline, a commitment to children and a commitment to continuous improvement and academic excellence.

What extra-curricula opportunities are there?

What is the Board of Trustees?
