Syndal South Primary School 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 lifetime. Students only pass through their school years once we know that their learning foundations are sound, in preparation for future growth.
We offer a developmental curriculum within a straight age setting, developing all students' capacity as learners through our commitment to quality teaching, personalised learning, and a differentiated curriculum.
Our curriculum is challenging and relevant and caters to the diverse abilities and needs within our learning community. We aim to develop in our students a love of learning, strong communication skills, with the ability to be confident, responsible, creative, and critical thinkers, and to be socially connected, independent, and resilient. We celebrate a history of strong academic achievement. We provide specialist programs in Science, Art, Music, Physical Education, and Japanese.
In addition, we provide a diverse range of enrichment opportunities, competitions, and programs to students of high potential and talent. Instrumental tuition is available. Design and technology and digital technologies are integrated purposefully, and continuous improvement of student and teacher learning is embedded in our school culture, demonstrated by learning that is meaningful and rigorous. Extracurricular opportunities are offered in academics, performing arts, visual arts, and sport.
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 self-esteem, collaboration, learner agency, and a strong student voice.
The school highly values education as a partnership of students, staff, parents, and the local and wider community. Parent participation in classrooms and extra-curricular activities is strongly encouraged and valued.
