"The most important part of being a Stagecoach Principal is changing children’s lives for the better. Creative Courage For Life isn’t just a tagline, it encompasses the essence of Stagecoach perfectly. I genuinely feel that we are changing our students’ lives by setting them up with skills that they may not pick up on the playground. We are teaching them to become confident and outgoing people, which is invaluable in today’s technology heavy world. They learn how to communicate, how to integrate and how to behave, all whilst having fun with their peers."
