Message from our Principal

"Welcome to Fleetwood Primary School, a school community where students are safe, happy and learning. At our school programs are designed to meet your child's individual learning needs.

Our school motto 'Achieving Excellence Together' is an indication of our commitment to work with families to ensure each child achieves success. We aim to assist your child to achieve both socially and academically through their primary years. We believe education is every child's right and as a school we have the responsibility to ensure that each child reaches their full potential.

Our 'Home/School Partnership' is an effective way in which we support student learning. Each family signs a 'Partnership Agreement' designed to assist communication between home and school and to support student learning.

Parents are encouraged to take an active interest in their child's education by becoming involved in classroom support programs, attending community events and celebrations, joining School Council or our Fleetwood And Community Events committee (F.A.C.E).

Should any concerns arise regarding your child's educational progress over their primary school years, your first point of contact is your child's teacher. If necessary the school’s Principal Class are also available to work with families towards developing positive and productive solutions to support your child in the learning process.

On behalf of the staff and the School Council, I look forward to sharing an exciting time with you and your child as they learn, develop and achieve their best at Fleetwood Primary School."

- Mrs Kerry Coffey, Principal

'Mathematics Beyond the Classroom' Project

We have been selected as one of 19 schools to be supported by Schools Plus’ inaugural 'Smart Giving' Showcase projects. The 'Smart Giving' team will promote our initiative to potential donors in an effort to raise the full financial requirement of our Maths Garden project, ‘Mathematics Beyond the Classroom’. Our 'Smart Giving' project target is to raise $30,000. Individuals, businesses and families can support our project. Please pass this link onto any family, friends or businesses that you think could support our project. Any donation large or small will assist us in meeting our target. All donations are tax deductible. Donate now by clicking here.
Our school loves being part of the local community and values the 'Arts' as a part of educating the whole child. As educators we love showing our students why they are being taught different subjects and how what they learn relates in to the real world. Holding an art exhibition is an excellent opportunity to do this. The students are always really excited to see their work exhibited next to professional artists. We have been fortunate to have the Berwick Artists Society working with us to bring the world of art to our school community. We are looking for sponsors for our upcoming Art Exhibition. Sponsorship is also a great way to advertise your business too. Please click here for more information.
