Principal’s Message

A sense of belonging, support and wonderful opportunities for today’s children to become tomorrow’s leaders. That is our commitment to our students.

We foster a positive environment where emphasis is placed upon a strong sense of belonging, Australian Values and success for everyone. Our motto ‘Key to the Future’ encompasses our strong culture focused on high expectations and developing the next generation of responsible members of society.

In 2017, Spearwood Primary School proudly became an Independent Public School. Our school community has embraced this opportunity to grow and develop with the new autonomy offered. The school has a highly effective School Board and a very successful Parents’ and Citizens’ organisation (P & C).

The school prioritises quality teaching in a high care environment. Our dedicated team of staff use evidence based whole school approaches to achieve the best possible educational outcomes in Literacy and Numeracy. Our students consistently maintain academic standards that are above or equivalent to ‘like schools’ as tested by National Assessment Program Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) testing each year.

Digital Technologies is a priority which is well-resourced throughout the school to support students to live and work successfully in the 21st century. In 2018, we are partnering with the Federal Government through the Digital Literacies School Grant Initiative to further develop our students’ Digital Technology skills. To promote balance between a healthy mind and body, we have a Physical Education specialist program. We also have a specialist Italian program.

I look forward to working in partnership with the school community to ensure we continue to achieve excellent results as we embed the school business plan’s focus of:

  • High expectations of success for every student in the school
  • High quality teaching with a focus on best possible teaching practices
  • Effective leadership
  • Strong governance and support

To see our amazing school for yourself, please join us for a personal tour by contacting the office on 9414 2300.
