We provide our students with a diverse range of faith and life experiences that nurture their relationship with God.

Networking with the community
multi-level classes
not composite classes.
A composite class usually implies two different
levels within the year being taught as two different groups
eg. the year ones being taught on one side of the room and a year twos on the other. Our classes are multi-level, which means the teacher teaches the class as a group of children all of whom are developing at their own level.

God you are Father of all people.
In the beginning you put creation into our hands and
asked us to take care of it,
each according to our abilities.

We parents
have special care for the children you have given us.
As time goes by we watch them grow and grow up
and we come to realise how much they are capable of.
We watch them learn new skills ,
make new friends,
develop individual likes and dislikes.

Sometimes it is hard for us as parents to accept their growing up. we want to keep them dependent om us, it hurts that they don;t need us all the time any more.

But we will try to follow your example:
You took the risk of leaving things to us. give us the wisdom and understanding to do the right thing and the right time for our children.

Give us a growing trust in you and confidence in ourselves, so that we can be happy with our children and share with them your blessings.
