I feel very privileged to have the opportunity to be the principal of Amberley District State School. Continuing our schools long and proud commitment to educational excellence, is something that brings me great enjoyment and satisfaction.
At Amberley District SS, academic success and student wellbeing go hand in hand. Students learn effectively at our school because they feel safe and nurtured and at the same time challenged. We have a committed staff who set high expectations and build authentic relationships. They go above and beyond for our students.
LITERATE, NUMERATE, CURIOUS
Young learners today continue to share much in common with learners from the past. To thrive now and into the future learners need highly developed literacy and numeracy skills, and they need curiosity. It is curiosity that drives learning and helps students to be powerful learners today and to continue to adapt to change and learn throughout their lives.
At our school we are focused on cultivating curiosity and growing learners abilities to be courageous, inquirers, collaborators, communicators, thinkers and self-managers. These abilities are what we call our learning assets.
Our aim is that all learners bounce into school eager to learn, feel they belong and have people who believe in them and that each day they are growing their learning assets. We are lucky to have both an expert staff and a modern and well resourced campus that supports the educational needs of all students and assists us as a community to deliver an education of the highest possible standard. Our staff believe that if our school is to prepare students for the challenges of their future, they each must also continue to learn and strive to be the best they can be.
A large number of our families have a long association with Amberley District and we continue to welcome new members to our community. If you have a young child (0-4yrs) we invite you to join our playgroup each Thursday morning of the school term. This is a great way to begin to become part of our community.
We value the role that parents, carers and grandparents play in the education of their children and I look forward to working in partnership with you. I encourage you to have a voice in supporting and enhancing
learning at our school by joining our P&C and contributing your energy and ideas.
