Melrose Primary School
The school is an integral part of the Melrose Town and District and is greatly valued by the community. School staff and the Governing Council are committed to developing positive relationships within the school community by valuing and acknowledging all contributions. This has positive benefits for our student’s wellbeing needs and their learning outcomes.
The school aims to provide a collaborative, supportive, adaptive and stimulating learning environment in which all children are motivated to reach their full potential by developing their capacity to learn. The aim is to instill a love for lifelong learning, to think critically, to show respect for others, to be compassionate in life’s endeavours so each individual is able to reach his/her full potential both academically and physically, and through understanding the importance of and living the values of Respect, Learning, Honesty, Responsibility and Excellence.
At Melrose Primary School we value ‘student voice’ and provide opportunities and forums for students to play an active role in making decisions. Students are also involved in planning and organising extra curricula activities for the school community.
The school provides opportunities for students: to participate in local community events, to respect cultural diversity and to foster a sense of belonging for everyone. There is the expectation that students understand and value Indigenous cultures and commit to Reconciliation between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Australians.
Throughout the year the school is involved in many special programs and activities which include: Tuck Days, Remembrance Day, Harmony Day, Annual School Open Day, community based sports program and linking with neighbouring schools for special events and performances and in sharing learning programs.
