Students

  • Mill Park Primary School is currently divided into Early Years: Prep – Year 3 and Middle Years 4 – 6. 

     

  • The Early Years class sizes are kept small to optimise the learning experience of all students.

    In The Early Years students build foundations for their life long educational journey. Early Years students at MPPS participate in:
    • Early Years Literacy and Numeracy Programs
    • Communication and Language Program (CaLP)
    • Home Learning activities to consolidate their learning at school
    • PMP (Perceptual Motor Program)
    • Physical Education, Italian, Art, Music
    • A range of incursions and excursions

    The Middle Years students begin to expand their thinking and take responsibility for their own learning. The Year 4 students take the year to transition between the Early Years structure to the Middle Years Philosophy.
    Middle Years students at MPPS participate in:
    • 1 to 1 Netbook Program
    • Literature Discussion Groups
    • Writer’s Workshop
    • Middle Years Maths investigation
    • Curriculum electives
    • Student Action Teams
    • Student Leadership programs and positions
    • Interschool Sports

    Student Leaders

    Mill Park Primary School’s student leadership structure provides students with the opportunity to actively participate in decision-making processes at school. Students are encouraged to take on leadership roles in an endeavour to develop their own leadership skills, act as positive role models for the student body and offer responsible service to their school peers and the community.

    Democratically elected student leaders represent the student body and their school in a wide range of forums at school and in the community to help shape a possible future.

    Student Welfare & Behaviour Management

    Mill Park Primary School believes that the maintenance of good order within the school contributes directly to the achievement of educational and social goals in a positive, caring and co-operative atmosphere.

    The school provides a positive culture where bullying is not tolerated. In doing so, all students will have the right of respect from others, the right to learn or to teach, and a right to feel safe and secure in their school environment.

    Through the school’s behaviour management plan a co-ordinated, positive and consistent approach to welfare and discipline fosters a school climate where personal responsibility and self- discipline is developed.

    At Mill Park Primary School we are not only looking at the best ways to educate our students academically but also how to help them develop their social and emotional skills.
