South Stirling Primary School (5423)

School Overview

South Stirling Primary School offers a warm supportive environment where every child's individual needs are met. Our experienced and dedicated staff really care about making a difference to the educational outcomes of every child.

Located 68kms from Albany, we provide a successful education to students from Kindergarten to Year 6.

Our school values are based on Being Safe, being a Team Player, striving to Achieve and showing Respect or being a South Stirling STAR. These values underpin our school wide positive behaviour process. This process has an emphasis on actively teaching what good behaviour looks like.

Our Kindergarten program is the perfect start to a child's education. We provide a smooth transition from play-based learning to more formal, but still developmentally appropriate learning through our Pre-Primary program which features a combination of informal and formal learning.

Through close monitoring of the progress of every child and with small class sizes we are able to tailor our teaching plans around the needs of individual students. We pride ourselves in consistently preparing our students for high school with the academic and social skills they need to thrive.

Our teaching staff are committed to continual self-improvement and engage in high quality, relevant, professional learning, ensuring they are able to meet the needs of their students.

Music plays an important role in our school with every child from Year 3 having the opportunity to learn a brass instrument or an instrument to accompany the school band (drums, keyboard or percussion). All Year 3 to 6 students also learn ukulele with a half hour lesson every week. Our school chaplain leads our vocal music program.

Our facilities are modern and spacious with up-to-date technology and almost a one-to-one ratio of computers to students. We have a modern, purpose-built library that is very well stocked with a great collection of books from a range of genres. Within the library, we are developing a dedicated space for STEM. Our extensive grounds allow our students to enjoy a variety of outdoor activities including mountain bike riding and orienteering along with the more traditional sports of cricket, AFL, netball, basketball and athletics.
