* a culture of ensuring students learn and improve,
* the latest digital technology is used to support learning,
* a continued focus on non-core subjects (arts),
* a focus on enhancing staff capabilities, and
* a commitment to community partnerships.

Respect, consideration, tolerance, responsibility and honesty are the five core values that have been identified by students, staff and parents to form the basis upon which we seek to achieve personal targets and interact positively with others.

The purpose of Marmion Primary School is to provide opportunities for its students to develop the skills, knowledge and confidence they need to achieve their individual academic, social, emotional and physical potentials in order to play an active role in the community. This enables the focus to be on the whole child.

The school's outstanding Music program includes; instrumental tuition for clarinet, violin, cello, trumpet and viola, and the school choir, and a string ensemble. Students perform regularly and The Music Night is a highlight on the school calendar. Specialist Programs are also provided in Physical Education, Languages (German) and Visual Arts.

Classrooms are air-conditioned and networked with multimedia facilities. The school grounds are well developed and include; multi-purpose hard courts, ovals and specialised playgrounds to provide an interactive environment.

Parental support of the school's strategic directions as set out in the Business Plan is very strong.
