Welcome to the community of Diamond Vale Elementary where we strive to

"Be the Best We Can Be"!

Working together with our parent community, we strive to offer each child a safe and supportive environment in which to foster the intellectual development of each child, develop and strengthen talents and build the skills necessary for a happy and productive life. We aim to educate the hearts and minds of our school community.
