Principal Message

On behalf of the staff and school council, I would like to extend a warm welcome to all children and parents of the school, and also to those beginning their association with Cardross Primary School. Each day I have the privilege of coming to work, engaging with enthusiastic, creative and passionate teachers and students. I am extremely proud and honoured to be this wonderful school’s Principal and cherish the opportunity to assist in the development of our most precious resource – our children. 

Situated in an idyllic country setting, we are a community orientated school with a current     enrolment of 101 students. At Cardross Primary School each child is valued and encouraged to reach their full potential. Just as each child is an individual with their own character and needs, so too their educational growth is unique. The teachers are committed to nurturing and developing the ability of each child through carefully planned and high-impact teaching programs. 

Our school motto is Together We Learn, acknowledging the importance of: 

· catering for individual differences through a deep understanding of all children;

· learning with and from others through the development of learning communities;

· evidence-based, high impact teaching and learning practices;

· technology as an accelerator for high-quality pedagogy;

· a caring, inclusive and supportive community environment. 

Our students are highly motivated and are supported by committed parents and families. Parents are encouraged, at all times, to communicate with teachers and the school leadership on issues that are of interest or concern to them. 

Cardross Primary School staff are enthusiastic, highly professional educators, bringing a wealth of knowledge and commitment to their crucial task of guiding students towards a fulfilling and   productive seven years of primary education. Our students’ achievement is a direct result of the dedicated, professional teachers who constantly provide diverse, rich, engaging and outstanding educational programs within an environment which is caring, friendly, respectful and responsive to the needs of our students. 

As Principal, my door is always open to parents wishing to discuss their child’s progress or anything at all related to the school. Cardross Primary School is YOUR school! Its growth, development and advancement depend on the support and commitment of our whole school community. Working together with teachers will help your child to develop to his/her full potential.

Welcome to our community!
