Principal's Message

Welcome to Farrer Primary School

Farrer Primary School is a thriving learning community in which teachers and families work in partnership to provide opportunities that foster creativity, deep thinking and skill development. We want our students to be active learners who ask questions about the world around them and have the tools to find answers to these questions. We aim to equip students with 21st century skills through curriculum focused on the explicit teaching of Literacy and Numeracy skills alongside real world learning units based on the Australian Curriculum, local priorities and student interests.

Our school is committed to providing high quality teaching and learning programs for all children. Students are supported, challenged and extended through a range of learning and extracurricular opportunities. Farrer Primary is well regarded as a school of academic excellence across the curriculum including specialist programs in sustainability, visual arts and Japanese.

Our Farrer values of honesty, excellence, fairness, respect and persistence are important in the development of responsible citizens. As part of our Positive Behaviours for Learning journey staff, students and community will be reviewing these values to determine if they best represent our current and future goals.

We value and promote student voice through our Student Parliament, class discussions and individual goals set in writing and maths.  Parent and family partnerships are highly valued by our education team. We value parent input, feedback and involvement in learning, extracurricular and community events.

Farrer Primary School is a caring, happy school in which students are encouraged to be themselves and strive for continuous improvement.

Regards

Liz Wallace
