Principal's Welcome

Dear Families

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Heathridge PS.  I have been the Principal at the school since 2017.  In 2017, we had a very exciting year undergoing a very successful Independent School Review.  In 2018, year we published our new Business Plan for 2018-2020 that reflects our new whole school approaches in Literacy and Numeracy. We also introduced Talk 4 Writing and Oxford Maths across the school and in 2019 we will have continued with this as well as introducing Talk 4 Reading. In 2021, we will create our new Business Plan 2021-2023 and will undergo a Public School Review in Term Four of this year.

Heathridge PS has the feeling of a small country school.  Our families are very involved in the school and everyone is made to feel part of the Heathridge Family.  We pride ourselves on providing a quality, inclusive education which instils a sense of belonging in our students. Values and pastoral care play a huge role in our daily approaches and as such our students exhibit exemplary behaviour at all times.

Regular communication is essential, therefore we use our closed Facebook Group Heathridge Primary School Official Group and Seesaw App across the school to keep in contact with families. We are now investigating a new app to offer more ways to keep families informed.

All staff and students support and uphold our motto of “Fly high - See far!” We are excitedly waiting to launch our new logo very soon that represents our motto but also represents our focus on care and inclusion.  Watch this space!

 

Kind regards,

Denise Jeffs
