Welcome to Padthaway Primary School

Be Respectful, Act Responsibly, Strive for Excellence.

At Padthaway School we are ‘preparing for the future … today’. We act to achieve this through our focus on literacy, numeracy and the development of problem solving and comprehension skills. We do this through the learning program designed to develop creative, confident students who can adapt and participate as globally aware citizens. We strive for excellence, ensure all students are responsible and respectful to everyone.

We are a small rural school that caters for children from 3 years of age (Preschool/Associated Programme) to Year 7. We are set amidst a vista of Conservation Park, vineyards and farmland. Padthaway community demonstrates a wonderful sense of ownership and commitment to the school. This is reflected through parent participation in the Governing Council, parent volunteers and the outstanding level of participation in school improvement.

The purpose of this website is to provide you with necessary information about our school and to outline processes and practices that our school community has developed over the years to assist us in our work.

We look forward to working with you as a partner in the education of your child and hope that you and your child will enjoy a happy and successful association with the school.

Further information is available at your request.

Thank you,

Olivia English and the Staff, Students and Governing Council of Padthaway School.
