We have just finished our first year with Penders Grove and I could not speak more highly of the school and of the teaching staff. Being a small school there are many opportunities for all children. The art show, dancing and music performances were all wonderful. I find Douglas, the principle, to be very approachable and open to ideas and input.

I feel blessed to have had both my children be part of this lovely school community. The staff are so dedicated and approachable. The Principal Douglas is very generous with his time and is at the front gate welcoming in families every morning. I love how the school recognises the importance of the arts in children’s development and that music is offered as a subject. The inquiry subject encourages curious learning from all the students. One of the other great things about Penders Grove is the huge grounds that the kids have to run and play in.
