From Our Principal

Justineshot

It is a pleasure, as principal of this exceptional school, to extend a very warm welcome to you, your child and family to our dynamic learning community.

The Ivanhoe East Primary School community greatly values learning, education, social competence and healthy relationships. A strong sense of moral purpose leads to high aspirations and seeks to provide the best possible learning environment for current and future students.

Students are respected as individuals, encouraged to be active and co-operative and develop into curious and inquiring students able to accept increasing responsibility for their own learning and conduct. We encourage each student to give of their best efforts and develop a caring, responsible and proactive attitude towards helping others and ensuring future environmental sustainability.

The school’s values of integrity, co-operation, respect, learning, caring and fun very much reflect the school's culture and the community the school serves.

Our core purpose is to develop well-rounded students who have every opportunity to gain all the skills and attributes needed to contribute significantly to our future society. As well as the provision of a strong academic program complemented by rich programs promoting creativity, the arts, physical activity, healthy living and languages, the school is committed to building community and social capital.

A key feature of our school is the consistently high level of parental involvement and support in all aspects of the school each year, which is reflective of a strong and healthy partnership between home and school. The wider community utilises our facilities including an indoor basketball court complex, grounds, Performing Arts rooms and meeting rooms.

Extensive intervention and enrichment programs cater for student diversity with an emphasis on intellectually challenging and extending them. Students excel in a range of extra-curricular activities such as the performing arts, public speaking and sports. The wide use of technology to enhance learning is evident as is the strategic construction of extensive new facilities to cater for 21st Century learning needs.

With a current enrolment of approximately 550 students, the school is generally organised into single year level classes with a multi-age class where numbers require this. Staff at each year level work closely in teams to plan and deliver excellent classroom programs. Our teachers are proactive, approachable, highly capable and dedicated to ensuring that every student in their care achieves to the very best of their abilities.

We look forward to sharing and significantly contributing to the exciting educational journey you and your child are about to embark upon.

Year 6 Jumpers Have Arrived

Our Year 6 students were very excited to receive their jumpers this week. These jumpers were designed by the students through a consultative process in 2018 including interviews with last year’s Year 6s, student surveys, meetings with suppliers

and a presentation to School Council. The students identified that they wanted a jumper that was warm, modern and was similar to the school uniform but allowed them to celebrate the Year 6 group.

East Ivanhoe Foodworks

We are very grateful to Paul and his team at Foodworks for their ongoing support of our school and community. Please remember to allocate your points to Ivanhoe East Primary School when you do your shopping because these make a significant

contribution to our fundraising efforts. We were able to use our points to purchase all of the sausages, bread and drinks for our recent welcome picnic, allowing us to raise just over $1,000 on the night for our school.
