  • principal's welcome

    Dear Parents/Guardians,

    Our motto, “The Best Always,” is both a challenge to each student and staff, requiring them to give of their best, in all situations; as well as an implicit reminder of our individuality and differences. After all, each person’s best is limited to what he or she is capable of doing.

    To this end, at the Joanna Clarke Primary School, formerly Savannah Primary School – renamed in 2021, in honour of past principal, Dr. Joanna Faith Clarke – we set high standards for all, but are sensitive to exceptionality and respectful of the rich diversity that defines of school community.
