  • Reviewed by Former Student on August 14, 2009
  • Rating: 4 (4 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • This is a school with good staff and students. It's very safe here, even during recces. There are always teachers on duty during reccess and the teachers are nice, but this doesn't mean that children won't face consequences for their actions. I am proud to say that I was once a student at this school
