Principal's Welcome

Welcome to the Seaford Park Primary School

As Principal I warmly welcome all families to the school.  I love leading Seaford Park - a school that "knows your child".  I very much enjoy working with the children and the supportive staff and parents of our school and feel privileged to be the principal.

 

At Seaford Park Primary School our purpose is to encourage and facilitate the total growth of each child by developing a resilient school community where all students develop independence, emotional intelligence and social competency as they strive to achieve their full potential.

 

At Seaford Park we encourage positive attitudes towards learning and respect for the rights and feelings of others through providing a supportive, safe, secure and dynamic learning environment that promotes thinking, creativity and individuality within a balanced and comprehensive curriculum.

 

The school is set in appealing and spacious grounds with the buliding blending well with the extensive open space surrounding the school. Inside too there is a feeling of spaciousness with the distinctive architectural feature of carpeted galleries and halls that connect all rooms. A new open plan mulitpurpose building has been constructed to house our visual and performing arts program.

 

A strong emphasis is placed upon the development of literacy and numeracy skills with high expectations and outcomes in these areas. Information and Communication Technology resourcing is a priority with a wide range of technologies (notebooks, ipads and PCs) available.  Interactive whiteboards operate in all classrooms.

 

The school continues to develop partnerships with a range of organisations and businesses with arrangements that are mutually beneficial. We are an accredited Resource Smart school, and promote recycling and sustainability.  We work with Ardoch who enhance our learning experiences by providing opportunities to learn beyond the school through for example, the Lego Robotics program and Learning Through Lunch.  Seaford Park also have an accredited buddy program with the Alannah Madeline Foundation.  Our Rhythm Wrigglers Playgroup run by an accredited music teacher is well attended by young toddlers to 4 -year olds each Tuesday morning.

 

The care we provide students extends to our staff, parents and wider community. Everyone in the Seaford Park community is important and everyone's contribution to our students' education in valued. We have a professional, highly motivated and caring staff, supported by an active School Council who work co-operatively to support and promote student learning and the overall goals and priorities of the school.

 

Don't hesitate to contact me if you require and further information or wish to visit our school.
