Welcome to Australind Primary School
Our desire is To Inspire Learning for Life and we are committed to
ensuring our students and staff are supported in achieving their potential as
educators. Our Business Plan (2015 - 2017) describes the key areas
where we will focus our resources over the life of the plan. Our school
priorities are strongly connected and they drive our planning as we seek to
achieve our vision of inspiring our students to have an on-going love and
respect for learning.
The priority areas of Partnerships, Maximising Effective Teaching Time, School
Environment and Excellence in Teaching and Learning support our school
community to maintain a focus on what has been deemed as important in the
context of our school. We are committed to maintaining a positive involvement,
connection and collaboration with our school and wider community, ensuring our
staff and students are free to focus on teaching and learning. We will continue
to ensure that our school environment is maintained, and developed even
further, to reflect a balance between academic and social goals, and the
environment. Our Business Plan supports a focus on high quality teaching and
learning opportunities which enable all students to reach their potential.
Australind Primary School has a proud 35 year history, and now caters for
approximately 240 Kindy to Year Six students. We enjoy strong links with other
local schools, including Australind Senior High School adjacent to our
property. This creates unique opportunities for our students and enhances the
quality of our programs. We have specialist staff in Art, Physical Education
and Information Technology. In addition, selected students in year five and six
are able to access instrumental music on site.
As an Independent Public School, we enjoy flexibilities which enable us to make
the best decisions to suit our students. We have a strong School Board, a proactive
Parent and Citizen's group and a great many volunteers through programs such as
the School Volunteer Program, Kids Hope Australia and Hands Up for Kids. Our
School Chaplain provides additional support for many families and coordinates
our popular school breakfast program.
The School has adopted the 'Choose Respect' initiative and staff have committed
to supporting students, each other and the broader community to further develop
a culture of care and consideration. Our relatively small size is a feature we
cherish, as we have the opportunity to get to know our students very well and
can cater to their individual needs.
Australind is a delightful alternative for those wanting ready access to
waterways, bushland and forests, while having first class regional city
facilities at their doorstep. Australind Primary School plays an important role
in our community and proudly supports the ongoing personal development of
