What makes our school unique

"What makes Stillness Junior School unique is the way the school administration and teachers include and engage students in different roles beyond the classroom. We couldn't be more impressed with the role of student ambassadors, student librarians, student eco-warriors and the like. It is a brilliant way to show children that a school is a community, not just a classroom, and that there are unique ways to lend your skills to the vibrant Stillness Junior family"
