It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to our school. I have been Principal at this school for the past 7 years.

We have achieved so much as a school and have developed wonderful play areas for the students. The school has an artificial oval and ball areas and 3 basketball courts. There are 3 large playgrounds all with their own shade structures.

Academically the children enjoy specialist subjects of Phys Education, Performing Arts, Auslan, Arts and STEM. Our curriculum programs aim to support and challenge our students. All learning areas including the gymnasium have heating and cooling. Digitally all students have access to ipads and laptops within their classroom and we also have a digital technology room for whole class sessions.

Proud is a word that I often use when describing being the Principal of Pearcedale Primary School.

I am proud of our students! Our students embrace every learning opportunity as a means to helping them grow academically, socially and emotionally.

I am proud of our staff! Our staff are dedicated, passionate educators who have the “whole child” development as their primary goal. In teams they plan a wide range of activities to challenge their students in a supported manner.

I am proud of our community! Our school enjoys being one of the most connected schools with the community. They embrace everything we undertake and support us to be a highly successful educational setting.

My motto I use each day is “better than yesterday” – this is a simple understandable goal that we utilise to strive to be better. Each day we aim to be better than the day before…in everything we do!

The school motto of TEAM encompasses all aspects of the words – Together everyone achieves more! We are a team at Pearcedale….a highly successful team.

I look forward to meeting you all on tour and developing strong relationship with your family as your child grows and reaches their full potential.
