Principal's Message


 

Welcome to Wantirna Primary School! 

 

Thank you for taking the time to explore our school website. I have been principal at Wantirna PS since January 2021 and feel extremely grateful to be part of our beautiful school community!

 

We are very proud of our positive reputation within the immediate and wider community.  Our school culture is built on care and respect where partnerships between home and school are paramount and nurtured.

 

At Wantirna PS we explicitly teach our CARE values - Compassion, Achieve, Respect and Engage, and this is reflected in the respectful behaviour demonstrated by our students, staff and families.  Kindness, empathy, good manners and being grateful are areas we hold dear.

 

We offer a wide range of programs with literacy and numeracy development highlighted as a priority. High expectations are held for each child and learning is differentiated for individual learning strengths and needs.  Class sizes are small and facilitate personalised teaching and learning. Our school is equipped with ipads and Chromebooks which allow us to embed technology into learning sessions to enhance the outcomes for our students. We provide specialist programs in the areas of Visual Art, Physical Education, Performing Arts, STEM and Mandarin. 

 

An extensive transition program exists for children moving into foundation with visits, information sessions, home-school contact and a buddy program being highlights. We aim to know your child and family well before day one of school!

 

Our staff are passionate about making a difference to the academic, social and emotional learning of your child.  Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions or wish to book a tour.

 

Warmest of regards,


Laura Caddy

Principal
