Our School

Principal’s Message

On behalf of the staff and School Council, I would like to extend a warm welcome to all children and parents of the school, and also to those beginning at Seaholme Primary School. I am extremely proud and honoured to be this wonderful school’s Principal and cherish the opportunity to assist in the development of our most precious resource – our children.

The school facilities ensure students are provided with an optimal learning environment. These include an architecturally designed main building with spacious classrooms and well equipped specialist areas. This building is complimented with a building completed in 2010 comprising more classrooms, a large open learning space and a library. Our vast grounds include an oval, basketball courts as well as 3 play grounds, 2 sandpits and a rebound wall. In addition, we have café style seating to allow students a passive area to enjoy their break.

We offer a broad curriculum and a range of opportunities for all our students to achieve excellence in academic, creative, social, cultural, sporting and community endeavours. We value collaborative learning, positive relationships and building capacity amongst our students to effectively allow them to engage in the world of the future, where problem solving, evaluating, working in teams, communicating, creating and innovating are not only valued concepts, but expected skills, attributes and capabilities. We are proud to be a high performing school.

We support the individual wellbeing of our students and provide a school environment that allows every student to thrive as they work towards achieving their personal best performance. We set high expectations for our students and partner them in their learning to deepen their knowledge, provide enriching and innovative learning experiences, while also gently supporting our students out of their comfort zone to attempt new challenges.

The staff at Seaholme Primary School are enthusiastic, highly professional educators who bring a wealth of knowledge and commitment to their crucial task of guiding students towards a fulfilling and productive seven years of primary education. Our students’ achievements in their learning is a direct result of the dedicated, professional teachers who constantly provide diverse, rich, engaging and outstanding educational programs within an environment which is caring, friendly, respective and responsive to their needs. We have a very strong emphasis on the professional learning of staff, through rich Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) inquiries. Furthermore, Seaholme Primary School has been acknowledged by the Department of Education, by engaging our services to support other schools to further their staff professional learning process.

We value relationships and connections and work hard to develop these with the community. We encourage our students to develop respectful relationships with their peers, teachers and the broader community. We instil in our students a keen social conscience and the capacity to make ethical decisions. Our students leave Seaholme Primary School, with the skills, mind sets and qualities that will best equip them for success in the world of the future. Our students are intelligent, resilient, creative, imaginative, disciplined, dedicated to life-long learning, respectful and ethical. They are the future leaders and role models of society.

We are very proud of all members of the Seaholme Primary School community and the work they put in to make our school, one of the leaders in education within our region.
