“We considered a number of schools in the area. What we like about Terra Nova is how learning is made so fun by the teachers as well as the school being in a magical setting. The children are engaged and stimulated and run into their classrooms in the morning. We firmly believe that the children need to be happy first and foremost and this will make them successful in their learning.”
Mrs Hill – Surveyor / Mr Hill -IT Systems

“Our children have only recently joined Terra Nova in Year 2&4 and are flourishing…. The celebration of children’s successes both in and out of school as well as the fact that sport is a big part of daily life at Terra Nova are just two of the things that we as a family really love about the school.”
Mrs Al Ausi – Health worker / Mr Al Ausi – Doctor
