Palmyra Primary School (5366)

School Overview

At Palmyra Primary School our parents, staff and students all work together to create a positive, caring and supportive environment, to take on leadership roles and develop independent learning.

Embedded into all areas of our teaching and learning environment is our school motto based on respect. Respect for each other, respect for our community and respect for our environment.

Our experienced caring staff, happy and friendly Kindergarten to Year 6 students and involved supportive community work together to build a strong and powerful learning environment.

Our school is renowned throughout the community for its high level of academic achievement and motivating integrated programs. We are especially proud of our recognition at international, national and state levels for developing parent partnerships, community involvement, student excellence and environmental education. Our highly regarded Sustainability Program challenges students to research, experiment and explore different ways of thinking to create an environment they will inherit.

We support and motivate students to develop sound social skills, be conscientious and strive to achieve their best in academics. Our dedicated staff go above and beyond to create experiences and opportunities which enable our students to apply what they have learnt to real life situations. In our sustainability program we have students in over 50 leadership roles across our programs in Waste, Water Wise, Energy, Recycling and our unique Pally Patch program.

Social and emotional well-being is achieved at our school through the implementation of targeted, research based programs and our students at risk (SAER) team, including our school chaplain. Our inclusive program encourages a collective effort to optimise the social, emotional and academic outcomes for all our students.

Our dynamic staff work collaboratively with the community and universities to develop strong partnerships to enhance students' lifelong learning.

In addition to our extracurricular Sustainability, Pally Patch and Kitchen Garden programs, students at Palmyra Primary School participate in a balanced curriculum. This involves specialist teachers in Physical Education, Indonesian, Visual Art and Music. Our extensive music program includes a school choir, band and instrumental tuition for 40 children from Years 5 and 6.
