 2018

 

 

 

Welcome back to the 2018 school year.  We are most excited by the current and future happenings around our school as we continue to grow and develop our skills together.  Last year we finalise our revised school vision.  We believe, in consultation with staff, students and parent input that we have developed a vision that underpins every decision we make.

“Wandong Primary School … Making a difference by developing confident, independent and resilient learners who strive for personal excellence.”

 

Our school values are embedded in our daily practice and are designed to develop positive contributing students.  They are:

 

Respect:  Valuing self and others

 

Responsibility:  Being responsible for what we do, say and learn

 

Care:  Showing concerns for one another

 

Friendship:  Getting along and being friendly to one another

 

Honesty:  Being truthful to yourself and others

 

  Doing your Best:  Trying your hardest to produce to your best effort

 

This year, we welcome nine new staff with a varied range of experience. Added to our existing staff, we will now run 21 classrooms – four Foundation classes, seven grade 1/2 classes, six grade 3/4 classes and four grade 5/6 classes.  Our February enrolment is 444 students… with a few newbies expected later in the year.

This year we will be offering a range of specialist programs, some being introduced for the first time in 2018. These are:

  • Health and PE
  • Visual Arts/Performing Arts (6 months of each)
  • LOTE (Indonesian) (6 months of each)
  • Digital Technology and STEM (6 months of each)

 

We welcome enquiries for enrolment for the current and following school year. Please contact the school office for more information about our enrolment process.

Monthly updates to this general information will be provided on the front page of our school website. Have a fabulous two thousand and great- teen (2018).
