Woodlands Primary School (5482)

School Overview

Welcome to Woodlands Primary School, catering for students from Kindergarten to Year 6.

Our school values a play-based learning approach and provides a balanced curriculum to give students a solid start in the early years.

Specialist programs include Science, Music, Art, Japanese and Physical Education. Students participate in a range of school based, interschool and community-based events in sport, instrumental music, and choir.

The Woodlands PS music program offers students the opportunity to learn a variety of instruments including violin, viola, cello, and trumpet. Out-of-hours guitar and piano classes are also offered by private tutors on the school site.

Our school community aims to provide a world of opportunity for students through the power of learning. We strive for student excellence, both academic and non-academic, and focus on developing the whole child.

Preparing our students to succeed in the digital world is key. Students from years 2 to 6 use their own iPads in our classrooms with the goal of 'creation over consumption'. Woodlands Primary School places importance on the use of the device as a tool for learning and the iPads program is overseen by educators with a specialty in the use of technology in schools.

Our Positive Behaviour Support program aims to develop the four school values of Belonging, Respect, Humanity and Possibilities in students. We believe that when these are embedded in a child's behaviour, they are well prepared to embrace the challenges and possibilities of the future.

Established in 1964, Woodlands Primary School is situated in an established suburb with an abundance of native old growth trees. The school serves as a community hub and is used after school hours by local families who enjoy the many contemporary playgrounds and basketball and netball courts.

An onsite out of hours childcare centre offers parents the convenience and peace of mind that their child is being well looked after in a safe and caring environment.
