Our School Plan identifies three goals as part of an explicit improvement agenda; Literacy, Numeracy and Wellbeing and we embrace the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspective in the Australian Curriculum as a centre point of our curriculum focus. We ensure that 'all young Australians will be given the opportunity to gain a deeper appreciation and understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander 'histories and cultures, their significance for Australia and the impact these have had, and continue to have, on the world.'
