Positive Education underpins our approach to individual and community wellbeing. Children are engaged from Reception to Year 6 in developing the strategies and dispositions necessary for them to be thriving people, capable learners, leaders for the world God desires.

We pride ourselves on ensuring all children have access to evidence-based teaching and learning practices across all learning areas. A recent significant investment in your child’s learning has resulted in a range of extensive support programs being implemented.

- Language Lab – a dedicated support program for children with English as an additional language

The recent expansion of the physical environment at Tenison Woods means that your child will be immersed in 21st Century learning spaces, natural and expansive play spaces, as well as access to the latest in Digital Technologies.
