2017 School Captains

Welcome to Westbreen Primary School No. 4158 – a school with a proud history since 1923.  The school is located at the intersection of West Street and Boundary Road in Pascoe Vale, Melbourne. Westbreen Primary is a dynamic learning community where tradition and innovation are woven into the culture and practices of the school. Whilst history is important to us, we continue to look to the future by providing our students with a broad range of opportunities to reach their full potential.

We encourage our students to become more ‘community minded’ in the knowledge that our future adults will need a set of skills, personal attributes and values to thrive successfully in our globally connected world. Our school vision, “Learning Together for Life,” reflects our belief that by instilling the appropriate learning environment, our students will be well prepared to thrive and meet future challenges. We inspire our students to make a positive contribution to the life of our school, believing each of them has the potential to make a real difference.

Our teaching philosophy of developing the whole child, integrates the inquiry based approach with the core teaching of literacy and numeracy. This approach allows for the development of conceptual understandings in all areas of the curriculum – our students will be better equipped to increasingly plan and self-manage their own learning.

Students have specialist opportunities in areas of sports, visual arts, performing arts, science and Italian. Involvement in choir, instrumental music, school concerts, art gala evenings and various social skills programs broadens opportunities for our students. Our Student Voice Program encourages students to reflect and develop on the qualities of good leadership and effective citizenship.

Our staff are passionate about their teaching and encourage all students to strive to achieve their best with their learning, social skills, school spirit and sense of service to others. Our school promotes a set of values which empowers students to make positive contributions to the school and wider communities.

  1. Responsibility
  2. Respect

We trust that the school will provide you and your children with a rich, safe, supportive and friendly learning environment. Fostering a strong partnership between the family and the school through clear and continuous communication is a key element in students’ success at Westbreen Primary. All parents are encouraged to be actively involved in their child’s education, school events and decision making opportunities.

The school is dedicated to providing all learners with:

  1. A range of quality and engaging learning experiences
  2. A happy and safe school environment, where learners can take risks and meet learning challenges
  3. A supportive and creative classroom, school and playground
  4. Opportunities to develop the knowledge and understanding, skills and values, to live a confident, satisfying and productive life.

I warmly invite you to visit Westbreen Primary where I would be delighted to show you around our school and discuss with you how we may be able to cater for the individual needs of your child.

 

Kind Regards
