Care Groups have been established for a number of years at Upwey Primary School. The purpose of Care Groups is to create an opportunity for students from different year levels, to work together and realise they are part of a special community. Care Groups are made up of approximately 10 students and an adult leader. Students are not put into a group with their class teacher and are given the experience of working with another adult. During our 30 minute, fortnightly meetings, Care Group participants complete a number of different tasks ranging from Tribe activities to school beautification projects. The program has been very successful in creating new mixed age relationships and instilling a sense of community in all of whose who participate.

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)
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
