I would like to take this opportunity to introduce you and your family to Wantirna South Primary School.

Wantirna South Primary School prides itself on being a “community school”, working hard to develop compassionate citizens who actively seek to ‘Learn for Life’. We offer a comprehensive and varied curriculum of the highest quality, from an enthusiastic and passionate staff who support students to achieve individual success – academically, physically, morally and socially.

A school built on RICHeR values, we offer stimulating and safe learning environments to optimise the development of the ‘whole child’ to reach their full potential. A history of strong relationships and communication is echoed throughout our community to ensure our students transition in life as inclusive members ready to embrace the 21st century.

The warm, inviting tone set across the school is attributed to the RICHeR values embedded throughout the community:

Respect

Acknowledging the rights and opinions of others, and valuing others for who they are.

Inclusion

Being accepting of others and providing a sense of belonging.

Care

Show consideration for the well-being of yourself, others and the world in which we live.

Honesty

Being truthful.

Responsibility

Being reliable, and accountable for your attitudes and behaviours.

As you take the time to wander through our school by touring our website or in person at the school, I am sure you will agree that a sense of belonging and pride can be felt from your first step into our community. It is rewarding to be principal of a committed community of staff, students and families who strive to do their best in all aspects of school life – academically, sporting, the Arts or community engagement.

As you explore our community, you will have a sense of the history, almost 80 years of collective voices working to support students with opportunities to grow and experience success in all personal endeavours. Our community prides itself on building inquisitive learners who will flourish in a place where they can dream, discover and ‘Learn for Life’: emerging ready to be active participants of the 21st Century.

If you enjoyed your wander through our school on the website, I would warmly welcome your enquiry for a personal tour.
Look forward to meeting you soon.
