Principal’s Welcome

Wasleys Primary School is a small country school which has a long history in the local community. The old school house, built in 1880, now contains two kitchens and an assembly area, and is currently utilised as a Play Centre space once a week. The main school building was built in 1981 and houses our admin, resource centre, 3 classrooms and an art room.

We are well resourced, and our school is set in spacious grounds with a large kitchen garden to the rear, a sandpit, cubby house, playground, music shed and oval providing students with lots options for play. Students are very welcoming of new students and are encouraged to include others in their games to ensure everyone feels they belong.

Our school is developing a strong, positive reputation in the community and our enrolments are increasing. We currently have 49 children in 3 class, providing individualised support responsive to the needs of all students, including students with additional needs and talents. Japanese, Humanities and the Arts are three of our specialist areas.

Decision making bodies include a strong Governing Council and Student Representative Group who work hard to continue to improve our school and learning programs.  Our teachers are friendly and knowledgeable and keep their skills and understandings up to date. Their current focus is on improving student reading comprehension and writing outcomes.

Prior to the outbreak of COVID-19 we were running after school clubs four afternoons a week till 4pm in lieu of OSHC (Out of School Hour Care.) As the need for this service increases we will explore avenues available to us.
