Research reveals that teacher quality is the most important factor in students achieving their potential.

 

Mortdale Public School's teaching team is committed to continuous learning and professional development. This enables our teachers to learn, share and create innovative, engaging and enjoyable programs for our students.

 

Our education programs focus on:

  • Matching the curriculum to the needs of our students
  • Providing opportunities for extension and challenge, as well as special programs for students with additional learning needs
  • Developing programs that foster the values and attitudes that create a 'community' and encourage the health and well-being of all students.

We provide learning experiences in:

  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Human Society and its Environment (History and Geography)
  • Science and Technology
  • Creative Arts
  • Personal Development, Health and Physical Education

Leadership is fostered through our Student Representative Council program. Students from Kindergarten to Year Six are voted as representatives of their class and these students identify and raise issues of concern to the students for discussion with the school leadership team. Other leadership opportunities include House and School Captains and Vice Captains.

We are very fortunate to have enormous support from our Parents and Citizens Association, who assist with a variety of events. Please see out P&C page for more information about the P&C.

Our school strives to provide a safe, secure learning environment for students. We recognise that students learn in a variety of ways and at differing rates. Learning programs are designed to meet individual needs. Our belief that learning is a life-long process has led us to encourage students to take responsibility for their own learning. Our school enjoys strong community interest, involvement and support.
