Welcome to Epping Primary School – High Street Campus
Welcome to the Epping Primary School website. The aim of our site is for parents, students and the community to have access to various school documents, images, current events and achievements.
At the beginning of 2012, Epping Primary School and Greenbrook Primary School officially merged under the name Epping Primary School. Both sites remained open and now offer full programs from P-6. The High Street Campus caters for 320 students and the Greenbrook Campus 130 students.
At Epping Primary School our programs are based around the Victorian Curriculum. The major focus of learning is literacy, numeracy and integrated inquiry learning which promotes the key to our success: curiosity. We also offer exciting programs across both campuses such as Interschool Sport, Choir, Student Representative Council, Rock Band, and the RACV Energy Breakthrough (a program for Grade Five and Six students). Students have specialist classes of Physical Education, Performing Arts, Visual Arts and Italian.
The well being of our students is of utmost importance to us, and programs such as our Social Emotional Learning program (SEA,) Restorative Practice and a zero tolerance to bullying all contribute to a positive, safe and happy environment. We have the resources of targeted teacher professional leaning, a Well being Leading Teacher, our School Councilor as well as connections to outside agencies to support our students. Positive relationships are a key to an effective school community alongside communication. We believe that open dialogue between staff, students and parents is essential to develop and maintain a thriving learning environment. We all have the opportunity to work together as a cohesive learning community to provide the best possible learning opportunities in a safe and supportive environment.
I love coming to Epping Primary School everyday because of the amazing, talented and creative teachers and students we have involved in their teaching and learning journey at our school. Our teachers are a very dedicated and enthusiastic group who continue to develop their teaching and learning though collaboration and professional learning with the aim to improve student learning for all. Epping Primary School is a warm and welcoming community where each member demonstrates our school values. The students continue in this fashion throughout the day and I enjoy talking to the students about their learning and interests when I visit their learning environment and see them in the playground. I enjoy listening to the growth of our student voice and the ideas students bring to the forefront when given the opportunity to have a say. I strongly encourage all students to be involved at our school, to find their passion and collaborate so that we are 'making a difference together.'
I hope you have enjoyed our website and it is keeping you updated. If you are a new family to our school and you would like a tour of our school or have any questions, please do not hesitate to ring for an appointment or simply drop in. Every day is open day at Epping Primary School.
