Principal’s welcome

“I believe teachers are our greatest resource and my job as principal is to provide an environment where they feel valued and challenged. I believe in children understanding what they can do and what they need to do next in order to take the next step in their learning.

I believe in having fun and growing children who are happy and optimistic about their future. I value conversations that have children at heart and decisions that impact upon achievement.”

– Stephen Lethbridge, Principal
