The school also offers a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities including instrumental music, debating and farm teams. In fact, our spacious land and our Agricultural Farm which backs onto the Oxley River and Rocklea Common land, is a unique feature of our school.

Our new Strategic Plan 2020 - 2023 is focussed on the knowledge, skills, attitudes and values today's students will need to shape and thrive in their world beyond school. We acknowledge the need to build on solid foundations - our strong emphasis on Literacy and Numeracy is at the forefront of our work.
