Principals Message

It is an honour to join Avenel Primary School as Principal of this highly regarded school. Avenel Primary School has a strong reputation for meeting the needs of all children in our community, academic, social and cultural.

I strongly believe in offering a curriculum where every child can learn and succeed. In the key areas of literacy and numeracy, APS will personalise the learning so that every child’s individual needs are catered for.

As well as an effective teaching and learning curriculum, our school also has a strong commitment to social and emotional learning, with school values in place:

  • Be a Learner.
  • Be a Mate
  • Give something back.

The school offers a broad range of extra curricula activities including sport, student leadership opportunities, camps and excursions, community involvement in events, Energy Breakthrough and a 3-day Bike Hike.
I look forward to being part of the Avenel Primary School, and the wider Avenel community. I firmly believe in an open door policy, where students, parents and community members are always welcome in my office to discuss concerns, issues, or raise ideas for the improvement of our school.
