Welcome to Aberfeldie Primary School
Welcome to 2017 and we look forward to a really exciting year with lots of new things that will improve the learning and engagement of students at our school. Aberfeldie Primary School seeks to provide opportunities that ensure all students have access to a teaching and learning program that is relevant, rigorous and challenging. Our aim is to develop students who are confident and self-motivated; who demonstrate high standards of literacy and numeracy. This aim is supported by whole school approaches to instruction, planning and assessment which means that consistent, high quality learning occurs every year during a childs’ time at A.P.S.
This year (2017) will see a continued expansion of our ICT program to include a greater component of STEM (Science ,Technology Engineering and Mathematics) to include digital aspects such as coding and robotics as well as non- digital design. A group of students in Grade 5/6 are currently designing and building new wooden seating for our school. The school offers an extensive range of specialist programs including Visual Arts, Instrumental Music, Physical Education and Japanese. In 2017 we are building the profile of Performing Arts. We are really looking forward to seeing the performances from our Grade 1 and 2 students following the Term 1 Dance workshops.
At the time of writing we are installing our new playground and soon we begin work on our major building project which will see the creation of a bespoke creativity hub . All in all; exciting times ahead. Enjoy the year !
