Strategic Planning

Every four years our school community develops a School Strategic Plan, which sets the direction for the future. Our current plan (2010 – 2013) encompasses the school’s current context, vision and goals. Specifically the document details a plan for improving student learning outcomes, preparing students for their next stage of development, and maximising student engagement and well being.

To assist in meeting the goals of the School Strategic Plan, our school develops an Annual Implementation Plan each year.
