It is a very exciting time to be a part of the Pembroke Community with the building works that have been completed in 2017. This offers brand new learning spaces for students as well as new administration areas, staffroom and a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) room. I have a background in Science and Technology and I am passionate about STEM learning because of the important 21st century skills that can be learnt through these subjects.
When selecting a school for your child, it is important to find a school that meets your families needs. Pembroke Primary School offers many unique opportunities for your child to reach their potential as a learner. We have a strong focus on the wellbeing of all students and staff to create a safe, engaging and happy place to come to school each day.
Our approach to behaviour management is based on the School Wide Positive Behaviour Framework. Collectively, our community value and encourage learners that are respectful, trustworthy and responsible. We have a strong focus on student leadership through our Year 6 Leadership Program and Student Representative Council.
We utilise a range of support staff so that individual attention may be given to all children. We have teachers dedicated to literacy and numeracy support for those students who require extension and intervention.
Using the Victorian Curriculum, we focus on the teaching of English and Mathematics. Other learning areas such as History, Geography and Personal Capabilities are taught through engaging integrated units of work. We also provide specialist lessons in the Arts, AUSLAN, Physical Education and STEM each week.
Additionally, we offer a range of extra extracurricular activities including lunchtime clubs and interschool sport. We have a chicken coop and gardening areas. Our Sporting Schools program offers a range of sporting activities which change each term such as swimming, table tennis and dancing.
I encourage you to come and see what Pembroke Primary School has to offer.
Yours in education,
Pembroke Primary School
