South Thornlie Primary School (5590)

School Overview

South Thornlie Primary School was first opened in 1976 and has since grown into a vibrant and diverse school with strong community links. South Thornlie Primary School became an Independent Public School in Term 3 2020.

We currently have a campus of five teaching blocks accommodating Kindy, Pre Primary, Junior, Middle and Senior classes. Our grounds are well maintained with three large play areas including playgrounds and a sporting oval. There are two enclosed assembly areas, STEAM room, Science and Music rooms, Library and a Computer lab. Our school runs a local dental health program and has a Dental Clinic and OSH Club located within the school grounds.

South Thornlie Primary provides specialist programs to its students including Languages Other Than English (LOTE) - Italian, Physical Education, Science, Art and Music/Drama. We embrace technology and sustainability with a number of ICT and environmental support programs running at the school to enrich students' learning experiences. Each classroom is equipped with interactive whiteboards and has access to surface pros, iPads and the computer lab.

Our school currently has over 445 students from Kindergarten to Year 6. We celebrate multiculturalism with approximately 32% of our students coming from a language background other than English and over 40 different languages spoken.

All staff are committed to helping students reach their full potential through the development of a curriculum that caters for the needs of all individuals. We believe parental support is critical if students are to reach their full potential. We actively promote our school in the wider community and encourage parental input into how our school operates. The school has an active School Council and a highly involved Parents and Citizens Association providing strong financial support for the school and actively campaigning to ensure students travel safely to and from school.

We look forward to educating your children and seeing them grow, discover and prepare themselves for the future.
