Principal’s Welcome

Elliminyt primary school

I feel incredibly privileged to be the principal of Elliminyt Primary School and welcome you to explore our website to begin to discover more about our wonderful school and the amazing students we have the pleasure of working with every day.

Elliminyt Primary School is a highly inclusive, nurturing learning community that fosters life-long learning through motivated, responsible students who are engaged and involved in their learning environment.  We educate and nurture the ‘whole child’; developing academic, social and emotional competencies as part of the learning experience, supported by our core school values of Honesty, Respect, Personal Best and Responsibility.

English and Mathematics constitute the core of our curriculum program, as they are the building blocks on which other curriculum studies are built. All children will progress at different speeds, but the important thing is that they all work and learn to the best of their ability and feel appropriately challenged and successful in their learning. Teaching and learning programs are delivered through the flexible grouping of students that allows learning to take place at the appropriate level for each and every individual. Stimulating programs in areas such as The Arts, Physical Education, Science and Indonesian enrich the daily lives of all pupils.

Parents play a significant role in their child’s development as part of the Elliminyt Primary School community. When students enter our school in Prep (or any other level) we join with their parents in supporting their child through 7 years of education both academically as well as socially and emotionally. We are very fortunate to have an active, hard working Parents and Friends Association that enrich the experiences and opportunities we can provide for our students, working alongside our dynamic School Council.

We have high expectations for our entire school community in everything we do. We expect our students to be well behaved, be proud of their appearance and uniform and to be well mannered. Our approach to positive behaviour is proactive and centres on self-discipline, self-esteem, responsibility and reflective processes. With everyone working together our students enjoy learning and playing in a secure and safe environment.

If you would like to visit our school, I encourage you to book a tour and come and see the facilities, programs and educational opportunities that Elliminyt Primary School can offer the children of today.
