Bridgetown Primary School (5062)

School Overview


'Pathways to Success' is what our school community strives for in providing education for students at our school.

Bridgetown Primary School provides an inclusive, caring environment for students where the unique talents of each individual child are nurtured and where excellence is encouraged.

Our school provides every child with the best opportunities to enable them to reach their potential. Our ethos is characterised by a focus on values, pastoral care, accepted dress code, a cooperative and responsible student body and by committed staff and parents.

The school currently has approximately 270 students from Kindergarten through to Year 6 and enjoys a strong relationship with the community. There is a supportive atmosphere throughout the school and wider community.

We are committed to preparing our students for tomorrow's world and in recent years the school has invested heavily in Information and Communication Technology.

All classes are linked to the internet and our computer laboratory is set up with state-of-the-art equipment to accommodate a full class. These, combined with the use of iPads and interactive whiteboards, create an innovative learning environment.

The school caters for all aspects of pupil development. An emphasis on scholastic achievement is supplemented by a strong physical education program and the provision of a variety of additional experiences to complement an effective educational program.

The school has enjoyed a history of strong scholastic achievement and regularly enters Australia-wide or international competitions where strong results are normally achieved.

The physical education program includes school and interschool sporting events.

Additional interest programs include a specialist Rock Band option for Years 5 to 6, a Drumming and Dance program for Years 4 to 6 and a Running Club for Years 4 to 6.

Our P&C Association is an energetic and enthusiastic group who are committed to supporting the school in many varied ways and whose generous assistance has benefited the whole school. The P&C runs the school uniform shop and healthy canteen with help from volunteers as well as fundraising for facilities and other resources.

Parents are also actively involved through the School Board which is the major policy-making vehicle and has representatives from the staff, parents, administration and the community.

The EdConnect Mentor Volunteer Program has local community members volunteering to work with and assist individual students with learning, building relationships and confidence.

Our Welcome Back to School, Friday Fun Afternoon, Parent Open Night and Christmas Concert are all opportunities for our parents and carers to meet, view their child's learning and enjoy time as a family at school.
