  • As global citizens, we celebrate diversity, promoting all languages and cultures with equal respect.


  • We believe in having high standards and aspiring to be the best that we can be.
  • We foster the spirit of enquiry, encouraging both creative and critical thinking.


  • We believe that social, cultural, economic and environmental awareness prepare us to play our part in shaping a better future for ourselves and those around us.
  • Our school campus is eco-friendly, using less energy to deliver a more comfortable, healthier environment.


  • In our international community, we know that when we all work together we are at our best.
  • We view active participation in the community, from the most local to the most global, as the foundation of a valuable life.
