The school strives to build a positive, ambitious character in a student and to plant good values and habits to groom children as good citizens, confident of themselves.
"Our aim is to develop to the full the potential of all pupils within a positive and caring atmosphere”. We wish to develop self-discipline within a caring environment.

Primus Private School endeavors to provide a safe physical and emotional environment. This responsibility is linked to the use of the Internet and Information Communication Technologies (ICT) and a number of related cyber safety issues. Whilst the Internet and ICT equipment bring great benefits to the teaching and learning programme, they can also expose anti-social or inappropriate, material and activities. Primus Private School will develop and maintain rigorous and effective Cyber Safety Practices which aim to maximize the benefits of the Internet and ICT devices/equipment to student learning, while minimizing and managing any risks. These Cyber Safety Practices will aim to not only maintain a cyber-safe school environment, but also to address the needs of students and other members of the school community to receive education about the safe and responsible use of present and developing information and communication technologies.
