“This is a wonderful school. I love coming to work seeing kids smiling faces and watching them grow.”
It is my pleasure to welcome you to Newport Lakes Primary School. The school is very proud of its long history in providing education in the Newport area and having always been a significant part of the Newport community.
We have caring and committed staff, who bring a variety of skills, interests and experience to enhance Newport Lakes Primary School. There is strong commitment to the development of the whole child. We are sensitive to individual student abilities and circumstances. Our supportive environment encourages students to be enthusiastic learners.
We value the contribution of our parent and wider community. Parents and teachers work together in partnership to ensure the best possible education for our students.
“We are very proud of the high-quality teaching and learning program that we offer at Newport Lakes Primary School and we strive every day to make our school the best it can be.”
At our school, we highly value learners (teachers and students) who ask questions, pursue their passions, solve problems, explore, design and create. We use the outdoors for learning through play and we provoke inquiry by noticing the world around us. Most importantly we encourage learners to take risks with their ideas and accept that mistakes lead to new learning. We are releasing more responsibility to our learners – and promoting agency by offering choices about the what, how, where, when and with whom, they learn.
Our ‘professional teacher learning teams’ work collaboratively to plan and implement a program that builds our students’ learning assets – researcher, self-manager, thinker, communicator, and collaborator – skills that are vital in order to thrive in this rapidly changing world.
