NICHOLS Point Primary School is attracting national attention.

More than 20 principals from as far as Sydney have explored the innovative school in the past six months to take back ideas to their own school.

Nichols Point principal Danuel Holy said the school’s open plan learning environment, as well as its STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) program were popular talking points among visiting principals.
