Our partners in education
“It takes a village to raise a child”
At Uraidla Primary we believe that the best conditions for learning are a result of families, children and school staff working closely together; in other words “It takes a village to raise a child”. We are very grateful that our families are supportive of the school and are true partners in their children’s education.
There are many opportunities for parent participation, whether it’s membership of our Parents and Friends group, Governing Council, listening to students reading in the classroom, driving students to and from events and excursions or supporting the learning program at home. We have a very strong and connected community, and we really value our involvement with local groups such as Imagine Uraidla and the Summerhill retirement village, and our participation in local events such as the Uraidla Show and Sustainability Fair.
A message from our Governing Council Chair
What I value most about Uraidla Primary School is its sense of community. The children at UPS all know each other’s names. Children feel valued as part of the close-knit school community, and this enables learning, growth and friendships to flourish. The school has a friendly, warm and caring feeling. There are a strong set of values that inform how the adults and children at the school interact, and these are deeply embedded across the school community.
Children run into school after drop-off at Uraidla Primary School. They are happy to be at school, to be with their community, to learn and flourish. What more could you ask for as a parent?
