Skye Primary School

Principal’s Welcome

Our students are at the heart of everything we do! 

Welcome to Skye Primary School! As a vibrant hub in the Skye community, we’re proud of what we offer and are optimistic about the future that lies ahead for our students.

At the heart of Skye PS are our core values: Respect, Responsibility, Resilience, and Relationships. These principles not only guide our daily operations but shape our positive school culture. They form the foundation that empowers our students to be active, meaningful contributors both within our walls and in the broader community.

Ensuring a safe, supportive, and inclusive environment is our top priority. By cultivating positive relationships and prioritising student wellbeing, we’ve created a setting where students are eager to learn and grow. Our structured routines and positive behaviour strategies further enhance our harmonious learning environment.

We’re driven by a clear goal: to prepare students to exit Skye PS as confident thinkers ready to embrace the world’s challenges. We pride ourselves on our comprehensive academic program, which includes explicit instruction in core areas such as Literacy and Numeracy. Our Inquiry-based approach across other curriculum areas, coupled with a wide range of engaging specialist and extra-curricular programs, ensures that our students not only acquire knowledge but also develop the essential skills and attitudes required for a rapidly changing world.

We believe in taking collective responsibility for student learning. Our team, comprised of dedicated professionals, thrives through collaboration within professional learning communities. Teachers are focused on continually refining their practice, using rigorous data analysis and peer observations to measure and reflect on their tangible impact on student learning.

We’re thrilled with our recent infrastructural enhancements completed in 2022. From a modern administration office to a state-of-the-art gymnasium, music room, and library, we offer a range of inspiring spaces for our students to learn and grow. Our refreshed STEAM centre stands as a testament to our forward-thinking approach while retaining the semi-rural charm that defines us.

Collaboration with families is key to our success. Recognising the vital role parents and the community play, we actively foster this partnership, believing that it amplifies the positive impact on our students’ educational journey.

To truly capture the essence of Skye PS, we invite you to visit. Please join us for a school tour or reach out for an individual appointment. It’ll be a pleasure to introduce you to our community and discuss your child’s education.
