Principals welcome

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website.

We are moving into a new era at Modbury West School with a recently completed STEM (Science Technology Engineering Mathematics) area and a renewed focus on improving the Literacy and Numeracy learning outcomes of our students.

In 2018 our students access quality learning from the Australian Curriculum and outstanding Arts, PE and Science programs with specialist teachers. Students also have the opportunity to participate in a full range of extra-curricular activities including junior and senior choir, netball, football, basketball, instrumental music (guitar, drums and keyboard), student leadership committee R-6 and Marimba ensemble. The “Buddy Class” system is organised across the school to develop friendships R-6. We encourage and support our students to take on additional roles as assembly roadies, choir assistants, front office assistants, lunch time play leaders, grounds support, recycling monitors etc. and a variety of academic competitions.

Modbury West has extensive and beautifully maintained grounds that are highly valued by the school community. Features include native gardens, planting beds for student gardening, oval, junior primary playground and adventure playground for older children, shaded sandpit and netball and basketball courts. Our Resource Centre is upgraded and a welcoming place, open before school and during lunch times.

We are extremely proud of the professional staff, the students and the families who make Modbury West School such an outstanding learning community.

Organised tours of our school are available throughout the year, so please contact our front office to book a time to see our school in action.

Kind regards,
Candice Cooper – Acting Principal
