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)
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
