Thinking About Education

Much is changing at MBAS and education generally. We would like to share some of our thoughts with you and in this section of our website we will include key materials which relate to our pedagogical thinking – the ideas which underpin much of our work. We want to share our vision and hope that this wider view of the current influences on our thinking will help families understanding of the ‘why’ behind the education of your children.


Extra Curricular - sports, arts, cultural, enviro and technology

Whether you are looking for information on some of our many sports teams, coaching courses, updates on school productions or a moto x event, this is where you will find it.
