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.

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
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
