Shelley Primary School (5579)

School Overview

Step through the gates into picturesque Shelley Primary School and you immediately feel the sense of belonging, the sense of community. Our vision 'Inspiring a Passion for Learning' reflects the view the school community holds towards all facets of education here at Shelley Primary.

Our teachers know and understand their students, both individually and as a class. They work hard to build respectful, trusting relationships with our families, making our parents partners in their child's education.

Our active and supportive P & C Association is friendly and welcoming, with dedicated volunteers organising events, fundraisers, busy bees and out of school activities, bringing the school community together.

We provide strong foundations in Literacy, STEM (Science, Technologies, Engineering and Maths) and HASS (History and the Social Sciences). Our dedicated focus on teaching and learning consistently results in high standards of student achievement across the curriculum.

We offer our students a diverse range of programs. A range of technology is available for students to conduct their learning via different platforms such as interactive smartboards in every class room, Macbook laptops in the junior and senior years and iPads in the early years. A school-wide Wi-Fi network allows students to pursue independent learning activities using these devices. Our Library complements the Information and Learning Technologies curriculum and our purpose-built Science and Music rooms provide students with the facilities to enhance great educational outcomes.

Our programs provide children with the opportunity to study a range of subjects with specialist teachers for Music, Physical Education and German. Students are able to learn a musical instrument and participate in the school choir, as well as playing interschool sport and taking part in various arts activities, exhibitions and competitions.

Learning is supported by opportunities for practical application and independent learning. Students are involved in a variety of excursions and school visits, project work at school and in the wider community including the River Rangers Cadet program and opportunities to attend Primary Extension and Challenge (PEAC) courses. Environmental education, active citizenship and sustainable development have been a focus in recent years which is part of our ethos of developing the whole child with a wide range of leadership opportunities for senior children including an annual camp.
