Welcome to Prep

As an accredited Glasser Quality School since 2003, our school has an outstanding reputation for quality standards in all that we do.

As we do not have a catchment area we are able to accept enrolments from all post codes.


  • Build productive partnerships with learners, parents, carers and the community and this is at the heart of our quality school.

  • Deliver quality learning and teaching with expertise and passion. This occurs in a supportive and nurturing learning culture where positive relationships are fostered and highly valued.

  • Deliver world-class education for quality learning outcomes.

  • Value parent and carer communication and assistance in and outside of the classroom.

What will my child learn in prep?

Teachers implement the Australian Curriculum in our prep classrooms. High expectations and quality teaching is delivered in the key learning areas of:
  • English

  • Mathematics

  • Science

  • History

  • Health & Physical Education

  • Music and The Arts

  • Technology and ICT   

Prep learners are regularly assessed in line with the Australian Curriculum achievement expectations.

Formal reports are issued to parents/carers at the end of semester 1 and semester 2. A parent/teacher meeting will be held in the first semester of school.

Literacy and numeracy learning

The Prep year is a critical time for students to develop foundational literacy and numeracy skills for success in future learning and in later life.
Learners are provided with quality teaching and learning in these areas. Teachers carefully monitor learners and ensure their needs are met.

Our prep program is committed to ensuring that our learners make a great start to the pursuit of excellence in all areas of their schooling.
