Welcome to Upwey Primary School

Please feel free to explore our website and/or pay a visit to see why we are so proud of our school.
Welcome to our School’s website!
My name is Laura Caddy and I began my role as Principal of Upwey PS at the beginning of 2016. To find out a little bit more about me feel free to search for my LinkedIn Profile here.
Upwey Primary School has a proud history of being an integral part of the Upwey Community. Our staff work in partnership with parents, local organisations and groups. They also strategically draw on the resources provided to us by the Department of Education to ensure the academic, social and personal success of each of our students.
We are very proud of our achievements and the high regard in which our school is held. Upwey Primary offers a range of excellent programs, with a strong emphasis on the core subjects of English and Mathematics. We also provide well developed and implemented programs covering the areas of The Arts, Health and Physical Education, Physical, Personal and Social Learning, Japanese, Science, Geography and History. Our students have access to ICT tools to support their learning, such as desktop computers, laptops and iPads. They express their creativity through lunch time clubs, cooking sessions, passion projects, video creation, class room. Many students also enjoy private music lessons and a gardening program. Perhaps most importantly, Upwey PS empowers students and encourages them to ‘have a voice’. As a result, they are given both casual and formal opportunities to share this voice and their ideas with our School Community and wider audiences.
We are now accepting enrolments for 2017. Call (03) 9754 2369 to book a School Tour with our School Captains and myself. I look forward to having a chat with you about how Upwey PS can support your child in striving for their own type of excellence.
