Meet the Principal
May I extend to you and your child a very warm welcome to our school. My name is Paul Schwartz and I am the Principal of Wedge Park Primary School.
Wedge Park Primary School is a great place to work because of the positive relationships and values shared by staff, students and parents.
We have 950 students enrolled for 2021. There are 41 classes. Class size in Years Foundation to Yr 2 = 20 – 24 and in Years 3 to Yr 6 = 22 – 28 students.
Wedge Park Primary School’s academic results are very positive and continue to improve yearly. In the classroom, we plan and deliver engaging lessons in the areas of Literacy and Numeracy where whole class instruction and independent learning time is strengthened by teachers facilitating focus groups during each session. Students are also supported during student conferencing which enables them to learn alongside their teachers and peers. Students learn at their level by building on their prior knowledge, to develop their skills, to challenge their thinking and to make new connections. We work closely with our students so they have a voice as they set their individual learning goals to support the direction of their learning.
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.

A variety of roles and responsibilities are available across our School to support and promote the development of student leadership skills. In light of our commitment to equity through a distributive leadership model, students have the opportunity to hold one leadership position at a time.
Formally, these include:

In addition, all children have the opportunity to lead initiatives – fundraisers, clubs at lunchtime, assembly presentations – by either taking their ideas to the SRC or to their classroom teacher.
