Welcome Message from the Principal 2018

I would like to welcome you to Chandler Park Primary School. This year we have moved into a new modern seven classroom and Library learning facility, a multi-purpose Da Vinci/ Art Room, and Science room. We welcome  parents and community members and invite you to see the new facilities at Chandler Park PS.

We are a friendly and caring school providing a quality service to families and an outstanding education for children. Our motto ‘Pride in Excellence’ supports our vision of children achieving to their potential. As children bring a variety of experiences and learning needs to school, we provide a wide range of challenging and flexible programs enabling them to develop as happy, knowledgeable, optimistic, creative and resilient learners who will always do their best and strive for excellence.

We have a safe and inclusive learning environment and we expect every student to uphold the values that underpin the management and teaching practices at our school. They are:-

  • Collaboration – being friends, caring for each other and working together
  • Respect-For self, for others, for property and environment.
  • Resilience – trusting in ourselves, having a go and not giving up
  • Innovation- to use initiative and imagination to create something new.

There are a broad range of activities and learning programs on offer at Chandler Park Primary School. The staff work very hard to create exciting and stimulating learning tasks and classrooms that are highly focused on the learning needs and interests of the students. We want students to love coming to school and we want them to strive to achieve their learning goals. We want them to take pride in their achievements and value the effort they have put towards that achievement.  We want all students to receive explicit instruction that makes sense and is purposeful. All students are taught and encouraged to develop social and emotional learning skills such as mutual respect, co-operation, honesty, resilience, confidence, persistence and organisation.

The school is committed to effective communication, taking a pro-active role ensuring people have their say. Consultative processes have been adopted which enable all concerned to be involved. Whole school planning is practiced and extra curricula activities are well attended by the school community. Chandler Park has incorporated technology into the curriculum and is proud of efforts to provide a high level of computer availability for students and staff.

All classrooms have interactive whiteboards which are playing an increasing role in student learning. iPads are increasingly used in specialised learning environments and in the classroom programs.

Developing quality partnerships is an integral part of our school culture. We believe that we have a shared role with you in assisting your child to learn effectively and to develop a positive self-esteem. We invite you to be our partners in meeting the needs of your children, helping them to acquire skills for living within a happy, friendly and caring school environment. Parents are welcome at any time. We appreciate your comments and participation in decision making within the school. We anticipate our students will face challenges or problems during their schooling and we will respond with confidence, to achieve a high degree of success. We look forward to a happy and purposeful association with your family and with our open door policy we encourage you to make regular contact with the school either personally, via email, flexibuzz or SMS.
