Pride, Respect, Achieve, Perform, Succeed


"The teachers set clear expectations in terms of behaviour and discipline and being kind to one another is very much instilled in the children right from their early years"



"The school has been very helpful during my girls' transition from a different school. Even though my girls have moved from a different country with a different education system, as an in-year placement, they have done a great job of integrating them in seamlessly. The school office is very swift on queries, the teachers are very kind and helpful, the leadership team is always very supportive. Keep up the great work PRA!"
