Stirling East Primary School Stirling East Primary's Curriculum Information for Parents

Principal's Welcome

On behalf of the parents, staff and students, I would like to welcome you to Stirling East Primary School. Through the hard work and dedication of the Staff, we aim to provide an educational and social environment that nurtures and challenges each child and encourages them to reach their full potential. We achieve this by having high expectations of the students and providing them a safe, happy and trusting atmosphere in which to challenge themselves. Stirling East has a reputation for being one of the best schools in the region. This success is built on a strong and active school community of students, parents and teachers, who all value the same high standards of education and creative and intellectual endeavour. We see parents as partners in our work and hope you will become very much part of our community and fully involved in your child's achievements. We look forward to working with you to provide the best possible education for your child in our care.

Mr Stephen Measday - Principal

 

 

 

  

 

Governing Council's Welcome

Welcome to the Stirling East Primary School!  My name is Tracy and I am the Chair of the Stirling East Primary School Governing Council.

 I hope that you and your family have the opportunity to experience the wonderful and varied opportunities our school has to offer, and that like my family, you too will have many enjoyable experiences both in and around the school, and through your interactions with the school community.
 
To all the fabulous volunteers that help with the tasks that make up the life of a school community; from reading in the morning in class, through to helping in the uniform shop and the canteen, to attending school excursions and undertaking fundraising activities, thank you for your many hours of work, and for your contribution that assists in preserving our enviable reputation as one of the best schools in the Hills.
 
If you have ever thought about volunteering, please do not hesitate to contact a Governing Council member, or the front office, to discuss the many opportunities available.
 
One of the key roles of the Governing Council is to provide a voice for parents and the wider school community. To this end, all members of the Governing Council actively encourage parents and caregivers to contact any one of us. We also have a system of parent representatives established throughout each classroom that provide another avenue for the school community to raise any matters, that will then be conveyed to the Parent Representative Coordinator and the Governing Council. I urge you to utilise any of these avenues whenever you wish to raise an issue or idea.
 
Any member of the school community is very welcome to observe our meetings, and if you have an interest in being a member, to nominate at the next AGM. Governing Council meetings are held twice a term and the meeting dates are included in the school newsletter.
 
Over the next 12 months keep an eye out for the rollout of the new grounds re-development throughout the school. The play space redevelopment has been planned so that it will benefit all students, across all grades. These works have only been made possible by the many generous hours put into fundraising activities by the school community, the participation in these activities by our parents and caregivers, and by the vision of past Governing Council’s in establishing a 3 year plan of fundraising for the works.
 
I look forward to the many exciting changes and challenges over the next 12 months!
 
Tracy Riddle - Chair, Governing Council

Bushfire Information

New codes have been implemented for the Fire Danger Index, introducing a Code Red 'catastrophic.' On these days, all Adelaide Hills schools will be closed. It is essential as part of parent's home/family bushfire action plan that alternative plans are in place for children on these days. Schools will not be open and school buses will not run. Please see the attached link on the DECD Website for further information or download the following letter from the Chief Executive Officer.  Below is also a downloadable copy of the school's Bushfire Action Plan which details procedures that will be used by the school in the event of a bushfire or heightened risk of (ie - Total Fire Ban) a bushfire.  Parents are encouraged to become familiar with this document
