The school enrolment is currently at 670, including 64 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students and 41% of the school population being from an English as an additional language or dialect background.
The school is predicted to grow to over 1200 students in the next ten years due to the expansion of the Bardia precinct. The school has a support unit of four classes (one for students with moderate intellectual disabilities and three for students with autism).

Students are encouraged at all times to take responsibility for their own academic and social learning, extending their own abilities and interests so that they can reach their potential and make valuable contributions toward Australian society.
