From The Principal
Alvie Primary School is committed to providing a safe, supportive and inclusive environment for all students, staff and members of our community.
On behalf of our community, school council, I warmly thank you for your consideration to enrol your child into Alvie Primary School. By enrolling in our school, you become part of our learning community, where we work together to support all aspects of your child’s wellbeing and future as a learner.
I am very lucky to work with a team of professionals, who are passionate about their roles within the school. We have developed a culture of relational trust, which enables us to collaboratively work together to ensure our practice is relevant, high quality and evidence based.
Enrolments have grown in our school from 36 students in 2017 to 56 students in 2022. Our enrolment forecasts for the next two years will likely result in student numbers rise to 70-75 students by 2023, and for these numbers to remain steady for years to come. This will enable us to continue to operate four good sized classes.
Be assured that by enrolling your child in our school, they will experience an education that addresses the needs of the whole child. By the time your child completes their seven years attending Alvie Primary School, they will have all the values, skills and dispositions to actively, manage their social and emotional behaviours and to be happy, self-regulated and productive life- long learners. Most importantly your child will love learning, know how to learn, be inquisitive, curious and creative.
This book serves as a school handbook and an enrolment handbook, which contains clear information about how our school operates and essential information that assists families to make decisions about enrolling their child in our school. If you do become a member of our school community, we invite you to actively participate whenever you are able to.
We hope you do find this handbook useful. This is the third edition of a school handbook for our school. It is likely to change as we develop new policies and practices.
If there is anything in this book that you wish to query, or if you wish to discuss any matter relating to our school, please do not hesitate to contact me during school hours to make a time to have a cuppa and a chat.
