Our approach

At the heart of Moerlina School is a culture of collaboration, support and mutual respect. A sense of security and belonging allows students to take risks in their learning, to challenge themselves and to have high expectations for what they can achieve. Learning goes well beyond the classroom, with students often heading outdoors and off-site to explore new places and experience new things that are relevant to their studies, consolidating and expanding their knowledge and understanding of the world.

“Moerlina School has been everything we wanted for our children. It is a caring, creative and intelligent school culture and we know our kids are truly valued and respected. Two of ours have graduated from the school and one is currently in lower primary. They are confident and engaged learners and ‘that’ Moerlina curiosity and wonder has never left them. The teachers are incredibly committed and passionate. It is a whole-person education at Moerlina and we are constantly amazed at the length and breadth of it!”
