A Message from our Principal

Viewbank Primary School has played an important role in the life of our local community since 1966, and we proudly celebrate 50 years of education in 2016. This school website has a dual purpose. Firstly, it is a resource for families considering school selection for their children. As well as viewing our website, you may wish to arrange a personal tour of the school by contacting the School Office and making an appointment. We schedule weekly tours on Wednesday and Friday mornings at 9.30am.

Secondly, it is a detailed source of information for parents and students who are already members of the Viewbank Primary School community.

Our school motto is ‘Love Of Learning, Learning For Life’.  Our aim is to constantly strive to improve the learning outcomes for students in an atmosphere that is caring and supportive and in which successes are shared and celebrated.  Students experience a comprehensive curriculum inclusive of a range of extracurricular activities.  Learning and teaching is our core business with a strong emphasis on literacy and numeracy skills. This rigorous program is supported by a diverse specialist-teaching program that includes Music, Physical Education, Visual Arts, Sport, Performing Arts, eLearning, Science and Library. We also provide support and extension programs for students at all grade levels.

Parent participation is valued and encouraged. Parents can be involved in a wide range of activities including membership of the School Council and its sub-committees, the Parents and Friends Association, classroom support, sport, camps, excursions, uniform shop, working bees, fundraising and family social events.

We have endeavoured to make this website as informative and user-friendly as possible and trust you find it that way.  As you explore this website, I believe that you will begin to understand the community ‘feel’ and excellent tone that is evident at our school. I am very proud of our school, like all our stakeholders are – staff, parents and especially the students.

Kind regards,

Bill Kersing
