A sense of community

This characterises Fitzroy Primary School, we are a school small enough to know all students well and large enough to provide a broad and engaging curriculum. The school believes that its uniqueness lies fundamentally in this sense of community.

Principal’s Message

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce you and your family to Fitzroy Primary School. I hope you find our website informative and that the information gives you a sense of what an excellent school Fitzroy Primary is for your child’s primary education years. It is designed to provide an introduction and an overview of school operations, routines and matters of organisation. It is also a forum to showcase the many excellent programs and activities which take place at Fitzroy Primary School.

At Fitzroy we pride ourselves on having a friendly and supportive learning environment that has a strong focus on high quality teaching and learning, the fostering of positive relationships within the school community and on student well-being.

Our school motto “Inspired by Learning” reflects our belief that by creating an engaging environment our students will be motivated and enthused by learning. At Fitzroy Primary School we provide a stimulating curriculum that engages students and caters for a range of learning styles.  Our main focus is on the development of Literacy and Numeracy skills with consistent teaching approaches used to cater for differing student needs. These approaches are informed by regular assessment of student learning and consist of a combination of targeted support programs; extension of highly abled students; direct instruction; inquiry learning and the use of information and communication technology across the curriculum.

Our specialist programs provide opportunities in our curriculum for student’s to develop their cultural, social, creative and physical skills. We nurture our students’ self-esteem, emotional understanding, relationships and interpersonal problem- solving skills   through the implementation across the school of the PATHS (Promoting Alternative Thinking Strategies) Program.

The staff at our school are a dedicated and extremely hard working group of committed professionals, who are striving to plan for improvement based on the different needs of individual students. They are passionate and knowledgeable about teaching and learning.

Our school community works in partnership with the school in recognition that it is critical that the partnership is respectful, has a strong values base and is always student-centred. Parents can talk to the teachers at any time about how their children are doing at school.

A sense of community characterises Fitzroy Primary School, we are a school small enough to know all students well and large enough to provide a broad and engaging curriculum. The school believes that its uniqueness lies fundamentally in this sense of community.
