EVERY CHILD MATTERS.

EVERY MOMENT COUNTS.

AN INCLUSIVE COMMUNITY FOR ALL

"Every child deserves a champion; an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists that they become the best they can possibly be."

Rita Pierson

A WELCOME FROM THE PRINCIPAL

Welcome to our School’s website!

 

Upwey Primary School has a proud history of being an integral part of the Upwey Community.  Our staff work in partnership with parents, local organisations and groups. They also strategically draw on the resources provided to us by the Department of Education to ensure the academic, social and personal success of each of our students.

We are very proud of our achievements and the high regard in which our school is held.  Upwey Primary offers a range of excellent programs, with a strong emphasis on the core subjects of English and Mathematics.  We also provide well developed and implemented programs covering the areas of The Arts, Health and Physical Education, Physical, Personal and Social Learning, Japanese, Science, Geography and History.  Our students have access to ICT tools to support their learning, such as desktop computers, laptops and iPads.  They express their creativity through lunch time clubs, cooking sessions, passion projects, video creation, class room. Many students also enjoy private music lessons and a gardening program.  Perhaps most importantly, Upwey PS empowers students and encourages them to ‘have a voice’. As a result, they are given both casual and formal opportunities to share this voice and their ideas with our School Community and wider audiences.

Enrolments

We are now accepting enrolments for 2020.  Call (03) 9754 2369 to book a School Tour with  myself. I look forward to having a chat with you about how Upwey PS can support your child in striving for their own type of excellence.  We look forward to meeting you.
