Principals welcome

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website.

Welcome to our warm and collaborative school community. It is my privilege to be Principal of this wonderful school. At Modbury West School we are committed to an inclusive education environment where students are known, valued, cared for, and diversity is celebrated.

Developing respectful, quality relationships between students, teachers and parents is a fundamental element of who we are as a school. Our core values of Respect, Resilience and Rigour reflect the attitudes and beliefs of our students, staff and community and are lived daily by all.

Students are at the heart of everything we do. Collectively, our aim is for all students to become the best versions of themselves in both their learning and their own personal development. From Reception to Year 6 our learning approaches adapt to cater for the diverse and changing needs of students of different ages. This is enabled by our committed and talented team of teachers and support personnel setting high standards for teaching and learning, and willingly embracing change and improvement through regular participation in quality professional development and dialogue.

We understand how important it is that your child’s educational environment is future focused, develops their potential and encourages their learning to be a lifelong pursuit. With our strong literacy and numeracy focus, and digital technologies embedded throughout the curriculum, along with Science, Performing Arts, Japanese and PE specialisations, students access a range of extra curricula opportunities beyond the classroom.

Add to this our extensive and beautifully maintained grounds, creating an engaging and inviting outdoor learning environment, students at Modbury West are immersed in a multitude of learning opportunities.

I invite you to contact and visit us soon; we would be delighted to welcome your family into the community that is Modbury West School. 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.

I look forward to working with you to provide outstanding public education to your child.

Kind Regards,

Troy Pathon
