Principal's Welcome

I would like to extend a warm welcome to East Butler Primary School. 

 

I am very privileged to be the Principal of this wonderful School and am very honoured to be part of a School community that prides themselves on providing a warm, safe and happy environment, where students feel welcome and cared for.

 

At East Butler we are very proud of our student population, which is rich in diversity with a large proportion of children coming from all points of the compass.  Our School has developed an inclusive, diverse and exciting range of programs and community initiatives.  Our highly skilled teachers and support staff have a range of expertise and knowledge.

 

Our very professional Deputy Principals make learning adjustments for children, help with School operations and work with myself to ensure that the school is safe, inclusive and a fun and joyful journey for the children.

 

One of the areas that make us unique is our MAC class (Multi Aged Academic Class) which encompasses students from years 4-6 who are ready to move at a fast pace through their learning journey.  This class has proved to be a huge success and we are very happy to be able to offer this opportunity to our students.

 

Students’ social and emotional wellbeing is of highest importance to myself and all the staff at East Butler Primary School and we are very proud of the support which we are able to offer families through our chaplaincy program and School Psychologist.  We also run programs throughout the school year to support children’s social and emotional wellbeing and you can find more information about this as you look through the website.

 

We achieve all of our positive results through a shared responsibility with strong parent, community and family involvement and encourage families to be involved in the activities of the school where possible. Our School is also blessed with a highly motivated School Board and an active P&C Association, both of which are an integral part of the School and further supports our ethos.

 

Myself and my staff look forward to working with all our prospective parents to ensure your child’s learning journey will be a happy and enjoyable one.
