Welcome to Australind Primary School
Our desire is To Inspire Learning for Life and we committed on ensuring our students and staff are supported in achieving their potential as learners and 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 future generations.
