Little River School


Stand Tall


Stand Tall

We have a vision that all our children will leave Little River School proud and confident of who they are. Confident because they have the academic skills to choose what they want to do, and confident in their relationships with people so they can adjust to any situation.

Little River School is a great place to be. We believe the children get an excellent grounding at our school which enables them to meet with success and develop skills needed for life long learning.
