Message from our Principal


 

I am incredibly proud to be a member of the Chelsea Heights Primary School community.


Our ‘Family Centred’ school prides itself on our truly inclusive approach which ensures that we meet the individual needs of all students. Our point of difference is that we are a ‘head and heart school’ which recognises that to learn successfully, your child must feel safe and supported.


Our behaviour education program, ‘Play is the Way’, and our use of the zones of regulation curriculum create an atmosphere where our students develop social and emotional skills which assist them to cultivate effective and lasting relationships.

 

Academically, our teachers deliver a differentiated program which is personalised to each student’s individual learning needs; enrichment, consolidation and intervention.

 

A number of our year 5 & 6 students have been selected to participate in the Education Department’s High Ability Program.

 

Our Intervention and Nurture Programs, including a dedicated Sensory Space, are invaluable in providing a flexible and caring learning environment for students who need additional support.

 

Being presented with the ‘Outstanding Primary Principal Award’ at the 2018 Education Excellence Awards, was a recognition and celebration of the combined efforts of an amazing group of committed staff who are integral to the success of our school and its continued achievements.

 

Our recent $4.5million major buildings and grounds upgrade includes 10 new classrooms and the development of an extensive nature play area.

 

I welcome the opportunity to share our story and facilities with you on an individual tour – phone 9772 4139 to discuss your family’s needs with our Parent Communication Officer, Kate Atkins.
