We  are very keen to hear from you as we seek to review our School Charter. Our School Charter sets out what we should be doing for our students - it is our key planning document. The Charter sets the school's strategic long-term objectives and targets, as well as those for each year. It guides all activities within the school and sets the teaching and learning programmes as well. The Charter must meet the requirements of the Education Act and encompass the National Education Priorities as set by the Government.
