Bencubbin Primary School (5039)

School Overview

At Bencubbin Primary School, we provide an excellent education for children in an engaging and supportive environment. Our strong sense of community plays an important role in our students' learning experience, with several families living on nearby farms, and a number of the local services and small businesses in our friendly and tight-knit community supporting our school.

We have an energetic and professional team of experienced teachers and support staff, including a teaching principal, who all play a vital role in running our school and supporting our students. Staff take ownership of their areas of expertise to educate and support our students. We provide challenging academic programs to cater for a wide range of abilities, such as the PEAC program for gifted students. Our students also have regular opportunities to get involved in comprehensive cultural, social and recreational activities and excursions, such as our Year 5 and 6 school camp.

We focus on the individual needs of each of our students and will support your child to be their very best. Staff closely monitor students who require extra support for their learning and develop individual education plans to support these students on a daily basis. Weekend sport is strongly supported by the community, with our students engaging in sports such as netball, hockey, football and tennis throughout the year.

We have a developing range of technological resources which are becoming part of our everyday learning program. Most recently we have acquired a teleconferencing system for our library and two 3D printers which the students enjoy using to integrate making into learning.

Both our junior and senior play areas are under comfortable shade structures in the playground, and we have a junior nature play area under construction which has a fort, cubby, bike path and new grassed area. The gardens and surrounds are kept in immaculate condition, giving the school a welcoming and attractive presence.

Our supportive School Council and Parents and Citizens Association work in partnership, supporting us to give your child the best primary school experience. Their valued assistance and guidance help us purchase resources and equipment to advance our students' education. The Parents and Citizens Association also run our very popular Friday tuckshop, which provides healthy and delicious lunches for the students.
