Every Prep student is given a friendly and helpful buddy from the year 5 class. Year 5 students are chosen because there is the opportunity to create longer lasting relationships over a two year period. The purpose of the buddy program is to support a smooth transition for children starting school. Children participate in fortnightly, structured activities together as well as being provided with opportunities to identify other activities they might do with and for each other. Our “small school, big heart” philosophy shines through when students seek out their prep buddies during playtimes just to make sure they are enjoying themselves at school.

I attended Upwey Primary from 1978 to 1984 from prep to grade 6. I loved each and every day there. My teachers were the best, I still remember each and every one of them and they will always have a special place in my. Especially Mr Barry Humphries my grade 4 teacher he was just the most amazing inspirational teacher I ever had there. Upwey Primary is the best school ever, its good to see they still have the same shirt uniform style as I had. I live in Bundaberg now but would love more than anything to move back to Upwey have my daughter and son go there and Upwey High.Simone Heweton
We recently moved from Rowville to Tecoma and I looked at numerous schools for my daughter. We decided on Upwey Primary and it was the best decision I ever made. My daughter came from a school of over 700 students to Upwey’s 94 students and was immediately made to feel welcome by all the other students, teachers and parents. What I love about the school is that being so small, everybody knows everybody, we know everyone’s name and each student is given all the attention that they need. It’s a real family environment at the school and all the staff genuinely care for each and every student. Upwey Primary has far exceeded my expectations and I know my daughter has been given a great advantage in life by going to such a caring, educational and family-orientated school.”Samantha, Paul & Family (2014)
