The school is currently a Shine SA focus school meaning we are provided with the most up to date resources and facilitators which allows us to provide a very informative and relevant curriculum for our students.

Our school is also involved in the Regional Drug Action team meaning we are a part of community based projects and decision making providing our students with the opportunity to be involved with the wider community.

The Department also offers students a chance to participate in a range of extracurricular activities such as inter school athletic and sports carnivals, knockout sports and primary school carnivals. Students are able to participate in these events not only as a player, but also as a coach umpire and even co-ordinator of the event.

Our faculty promotes healthy lifestyles and physical activity while catering for a wide range of learners and interests.
