Mount Waverley North Primary School is the centre of a vibrant, active and supportive school community. Located in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne, we are a school of choice within the local and wider community.
Our school has a commitment to continuous improvement and academic excellence, with our most recent academic results displaying outstanding levels of high growth exceeding national and state benchmarks in all areas. We take pride in preparing our students to thrive in the world of today and tomorrow as effective global citizens. We offer a challenging, meaningful and authentic curriculum in an environment of care, collaboration, enterprise and mutual respect.
Developing social competence is a priority, with a whole school approach to student learning and wellbeing. The use of High Impact Teaching Strategies across all levels of the school allow us to deliver excellence in teaching and learning. Our school motto is 'Aspire, Believe, Achieve', and our prime focus is to enable our students to achieve success, particularly in literacy and numeracy, develop a strong feeling of confidence and self-worth and develop skills that enable them to contribute positively to society. Our Multisensory Structured Language learning approach is delivered across all areas of the school by our accredited MSL teachers. This strong academic focus on literacy and numeracy is supported by a range of engaging and enriching school specialist classes including music and performing arts, visual arts, physical education and sport, language other than English (German) and STEM.
Opportunities are provided to excel through programs such as the Science Talent Search and Maths Olympiad, as well as public speaking and debating. Extracurricular activities are offered both within and beyond the classroom, including coding, robotics, chess and numerous sporting activities and opportunities. We have a strong commitment to embedding digital technologies throughout our curricular areas and have invested in state-of-the-art learning devices including Google Suite collaboration tools and technology. Our school values of Respect, Integrity, Excellence and Global Citizenship are central to the culture of our school and provide a strong framework for our students, staff and school community to flourish.
