Our school has exceptional facilities, including large classrooms, library, resource rooms, performing arts classroom, undercover playground, chook pen, tennis court and under covered walkways. The school is a safe and supportive environment for students.
Our one hectare school was built within the rainforest in 1988, halfway between the Daintree River ferry crossing and Cape Tribulation in the community of Diwan / Cow Bay. The indigenous custodians are the Kuku Yalanji (Gugu-ya-lan-ji) with place and country that from Mossman to Bloomfield and the surrounding western ranges. There is abundant flora and fauna, including exotic palms, cycads, salt water crocodiles and cassowaries. Diwan / Cow Bay is 45 minutes north of Mossman which is the closest small town providing shopping, services and the local state high school.
The ferry river crossing is operational from 6am until 12pm, 365 days a year. This strident community is self-reliant, as north of the Daintree River there are no council provided amenities including electricity, waste pick-up and water.
