Welcome to our wonderful school. Thank you for visiting our website; I hope you get a feel for why our school is known as the “Caring Family School”. Our school values are Respect, Resilience, Working Together, Personal Best and Caring, and we live these values every day.
Our teaching and learning across the school is focussed on our students. We pride ourselves in being able to meet students at their points of need, ensuring every student receives the best possible education; academically, socially and emotionally. We have comprehensive whole school programs in English and Mathematics, ensuring our learners become critical thinkers and build deep understanding in these areas. We ensure that no child is left behind by providing intervention in the forms of Reading Recovery and Levelled Literacy Intervention.
Our students enjoy our specialist subjects of Performing Arts and Visual Arts, and they have many opportunities throughout the year to show off their artistic abilities. Our other specialist areas are Science and Auslan (LOTE). In 2021 we will have a focus on sustainability, with every child becoming involved in lessons on saving our planet, and in creating an amazing Eco Zone at our school.
Our community supports the school to engage in many activities throughout the year, including our school picnic at Phillip Island. The school prepares a float for the Yakkerboo Parade and staff and students participate in this event in Pakenham. We have a family and friends’ day, a whole school sleepover, an art show day and a whole school camp. Our school community comes together for an end of year celebration where all grades present a concert item, and awards and certificates are presented.
Visitors to our school frequently comment on the friendliness of our staff and students. If you are a prospective member of our community, I invite you to visit us for a personal tour so that we can show you the outstanding school environment we can offer your children.
I am privileged to be serving the Cardinia community as Principal of Cardinia Primary School. It is an honour to work with the dedicated staff as we continue to provide an excellent education for the children in our care.Susan WepsterPrincipal
