Principal’s Welcome


Walliston Primary school enrols families, not students. The school engagement of parents with the school goes back to its foundation and is embedded in our school’s culture.

As educators at Walliston PS we want our children to be academically robust; significantly astute; physically sound; artistically creative; morally and ethically prepared; self-reliant and independent in their learning; technologically adept; media-wise; globally and environmentally aware.

The challenge of meeting the needs of tomorrow’s young adults is impressively met at Walliston Primary. We have an experienced, well-qualified, enthusiastic body of staff; outstanding specialists in Music, Art, Italian, Digital Technologies and Physical Education: attractive grounds and buildings; excellent teaching and learning resources; and the energy and will to help children joyfully discover and develop their potential.

The best we can achieve for each child will be the result of partnerships; strong relationships between staff, students and parents, but also with other schools, local businesses, service organisations and other government and non-government organisations.

Working together we can achieve success which results in lifelong learning. At school, we build on the foundation laid by parents and we encourage parents and carers to become actively involved in school life. Parents can assist partnership by ensuring their child is fully equipped to take full advantage of all that is offered at the school. Please encourage and talk to your child as much as possible.

We look forward to a happy and productive year.
