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.

My family and I moved down to Melbourne, from Queensland in 2010. Upwey Primary School was the first school we considered for our three children and after having had our interview with the Principal we knew we didn’t need to look any further.
We were instantly welcomed into the school community. The teachers are totally focussed on the well-being of the children and their learning. Each child is individually catered for in terms of their academic ability, as well as being provided with the opportunity to enjoy various sporting activities, school excursions and incursions and, of course, school camp.
Upwey Primary School provides a positive, happy and safe environment for their students and as a parent that is very important to us.
So if you want to be welcomed into a school community that will become an extension of your own family, Upwey Primary School is the place to come.Sue Comello
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)
