Principal's Message


Welcome to Phoenix Primary School. The future of all children at Phoenix Primary school is important to us. We are constantly working to ensure all children feel safe and happy and achieve their potential. With parents and the community, we are guiding our children to achieve their personal goals and prepare them for the 21st Century. We regard our students as an investment in the future of public school education.

Our school places great emphasis on its people, who are central to the quality of the teaching and learning provided. The staff at Phoenix Primary School promote excellence which is reflected in their evidence based progressive curriculum, their planning and their teaching practices. They support and nurture in the students the self-confidence to pursue their talents and interests. Our high expectations assist us to focus on the student as an individual. We proudly acknowledge and build on established educational traditions of the school.

As language skills are extremely important in learning to read and write, we focus on the oral language skills of the whole school and particularly in the early childhood area, by engaging our children in small group based learning.  Consistent approaches for whole school improvement in literacy and numeracy have been a focus for our school. 

Our school based programs support the development of each child in all learning areas. The school’s Technology Centre and science facilities provide our students with opportunities to research, experiment and develop their skills, exploring different ways of thinking. The creative arts program offers our students access to a range of music and instrumental programs. Our Italian teacher engages our children in the delights of Italy and its language. Our school’s sporting history is notable with representation across all codes of sport and high levels of success in individual as well as team sports.

We continually strive to enhance the quality of our communication with families. We see educating students for the future as a combined approach with the parents, community and school working as a team. Phoenix works collaboratively with our local universities and TAFEs in providing a progressive school environment for the training of teachers and education assistants.

We look forward to you joining our Phoenix community and helping us provide the best education for all our children. We are proud to wear the uniform bearing the name of Phoenix Primary School.
