FROM THE PRINCIPAL

Thank you for visiting the Melton South Primary School web site. I hope that your visit provides you with useful information about our school and strongly encourage you to contact me to arrange a personal tour of the school, allowing you to see the strength of our curriculum and our supportive school culture and climate in action. At Melton South Primary School we aim to make your child’s school life a rewarding and enjoyable time. We cater for individuals and understand that the building of self esteem is essential for success. We encourage you to enter into a partnership with our school community, where our mutual concern is your child. By working together we can ensure the best possible environment in which all children can grow confidently, realise their full potential, share their concerns and celebrate successes.

All staff at Melton South PS are committed to ensuring a safe, caring environment for every student. We have clear anti-bullying policies, supported by a comprehensive student leadership program and high expectations in relation to behaviour. Parents are actively encouraged to be partners in the learning process and are warmly welcomed into the school to assist and become involved in many different areas of the daily operation of the school. 
The highly motivated and professional staff members provide a sound education that fosters a love of learning and encouragement for individuals to excel. Numeracy and Literacy are at the core of an integrated curriculum that includes Science, Technology, Health and Physical Education, The Arts (visual and performing) and Information Technology.Teachers work and plan in teams and are continually improving their teaching and learning techniques through quality professional development and peer coaching and mentoring programs.Please take the time to view the information provided on the Learning Areas that describe our programs at Melton South.

I hope that our web site has answered some of your questions, but you are invited to come and discuss any other issues or how we can best meet the needs of your child. I look forward to you visiting again and hope that you choose to join me in the shared educational journey of your child.
