CURRICULUM OVERVIEW

At Prescott Primary Northern, we are committed to promoting an understanding of the love of God by our own example and presentation of Biblical truth. Our teaching is God-centred and our ultimate goal is to bring children to their own relationship and commitment to Jesus as Lord and Saviour of their lives. We equip our students for lifelong learning by modeling Christ as the centre of our school through our personal relationships and interactions.
