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 gave me the confidence to follow my natural curiosity and passion for discovery. I was encouraged to explore the natural world – to go out and get amongst it. I credit Moerlina with laying a strong foundation for the critical and creative thought that has been so important to my career. Now my children are attending Moerlina and their love of learning is nurtured every day. I trust Moerlina to give them the excellent primary school education they gave me.”
