McDonald Park Primary School is committed to giving every student the opportunity to achieve their potential in a caring and safe educational environment that embraces our values of respect, generosity and honesty. We provide a balanced and challenging curriculum that caters for students’ individual needs and talents, with an emphasis on developing literacy and numeracy skills. We have a strong focus on wellbeing, offering social learning programs that develop a student’s social, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. A peer support program operates in the yard, as well as supervised lunchtime activities.
Students have an active role in decision-making via a student leadership team, representative groups and class meetings. In recent years we have undergone a major redevelopment program, which included refurbishment to the main building, and a new administration block, resource centre, gymnasium and classroom block. Outside we provide a number of flexible learning spaces including four playgrounds. Families come from a wide range of socio-economic backgrounds, and take pride in the school. There is a high level of parent participation and support, which is greatly valued.
