Students

  • Mill Park Primary School is 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
    • Oral Language Program
    • Home Learning activities to consolidate their learning at school
    • PMP (Perceptual Motor Program)
    • Physical Education, Italian, Visual Art, Music and Performing Arts
    • 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:
    • Recipricol Guided Reading
    • Literature Circles
    • Writer’s Workshop
    • Middle Years Maths investigation
    • Curriculum electives

    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.

    School Wide Positive Behaviour Support

    School Wide Positive Behaviour Support is an approach being introduced to help teach our students improved social and communication skills. These are based on Mill Park Primary School’s core values of Respect, Integrity, Compassion and Excellence.

    Evidence shows that teaching, recognising, acknowledging and rewarding positive behaviour helps reinforce these social skills and is an important step in our student’s education. We also know that social and communication skills are learnt and each child will learn these abilities at their own pace.

    You can help support your child’s learning by being aware of SWPBS and practising these strategies at home.
