Don Valley’s spacious attractive grounds, enables students to be both physically active and creative in their play.

The staff, parents and community of Don Valley aim to provide a caring and supportive environment where diversity and respect for self and others is valued. We pride ourselves on being a parent and community friendly school. We are passionate in the belief that children thrive in a small school community where children have an identity. Individual children’s needs can be clearly seen and met. Multi-age interactions and learning experiences help to develop responsibility, leadership and social skills as well as rich learning experiences.
