Our School

Principal’s Message

With a team of committed and highly skilled teachers, Wedge Park Primary School fosters a community of life-long learners. We strive to develop articulate, socially responsible and resilient individuals who are working towards achieving their full potential. We see our central purpose as giving students a comprehensive education enabling all students to become literate, numerate and curious learners who have the capacity to contribute to society now and in the future as global citizens.

Our school values (Responsible, Respectful, Learners) describe the guiding principles and beliefs of the school community, and are designed to underpin all that we do. These values will assist the school to provide an environment where our children can be happy, safe, expressive, creative and engaged in learning. We expect staff, students and parents to model these values in all interactions.

Our Prep Transition Program begins in November, with all enrolled students and their parents invited to a series of four sessions over Term 4.
