From the Principal
Burwood Heights Primary School and Kindergarten is a vibrant place, where learning and relationships are the centre of our school life. We aim to deliver opportunities and experiences which will stay with our students for a life-time. As students only pass through their school years once we know that their learning foundations must be sound, in preparation for future growth.
We have high expectations for our students academically and deliver an innovative curriculum which promotes creativity, curiosity, tolerance and nurtures self-worth and self-expression. Our aim is to open each student’s mind to the rich diversity of the world they are growing up in and challenge them to explore and question everything they find with integrity, honesty, moral courage and compassion.
Positive relationships with the students and their families, based on trust, respect and support are built. Each student is highly valued, as is their time with us. We endeavour to unearth their talents, arouse their interests, promote the development of citizenship and personal character and nurture and guide individual growth. We are about “Educating for Life”.
To achieve this vision we must be:
- Confident in, and committed to, a rigorous academic programme, whilst sensitive to individual abilities and circumstances.
- Creative,innovative in our thinking and programme provision
- Able to support our educational programmes through sound governance, the development of staff, community, opportunity and facility development.
- Ensure that our children are safe, in all school/kindergarten environments or school related environments.
All school teachers meet the registration requirements of the Victorian Institute of Teaching (www.vit.vic.edu.au).
Our school is compliant with the Child Safe Standards prescribed in Ministerial Order 870 – Child Safe Standards, Managing Risk of Child Abuse in Schools.
For more information on procedures, processes and policies, please feel free to contact the school.
We hope you enjoy your visit and we welcome your interest and feedback and would be pleased to communicate with you further via the internet or in person.
