VALUES: Being a Barny Star

Being a Barny Star means that you have a warm and caring heart and your energy motivates yourself and others to light a path to help lead the way.

You demonstrate our values to be a SAFE and responsible citizen, a RESPECTFUL and honest individual and a successful and confident LEARNER.


“We treat others the way we would like to be treated.

Success: It takes a VIllage…

We believe that it takes a village to raise a child. Therefore we promote strong and positive partnerships between everyone – we all work together with a solutions based approach- staff, parents, students and all stakeholders. Our relationships are underpinned by and reflective of our school values and expectations. How we all engage with each other is paramount in order for students to be successful.

We hold a number of family events throughout the year which we promote on our facebook page and uEducateUs platform. They’re a great way to get to know everyone and build strong connections. We hope you can be part of them.
