Principal's Message


Weetangera Primary School is recognised for our commitment to academic success, complemented by a comprehensive co-curricular program and a pursuit of service and compassion for the community. These programs provide students with a balanced development of the intellectual, emotional, physical, social and cultural elements of life in order to enable them to reach their potential both as a student and as a member of the community.
"Our Vision, as a community is to inspire a passion for learning". To develop and deliver an education empowering each person at Weetangera School to be a successful learner, a confident and creative individual, and an active and informed globally minded citizen.
Weetangera School has a commitment to excellence in a caring, cooperative and inclusive environment. As a community we share the common values of Respect, Responsibility, Resilience and Inclusion.
It is the belief of our community that we are all responsible for the academic, social, emotional and physical well-being and development of the children in our care. We believe that the partnership between home and school is crucial and we do all we can to ensure the strength of this partnership.
Building on firm foundations, the school looks to the future in a contemporary approach to learning. Educational literature on 21st century thinkers emphasise a range of qualities that our future will need: open mindedness; the ability to work collaboratively with others; to engage in problem solving; to analyse and integrate knowledge; to think creatively and imaginatively; to apply knowledge to respond to emerging needs and trends; and to communicate accurately, clearly and effectively. Our approach continuously evolves to meet these challenges, to give our students the best opportunity to engage with their preferred future.
I look forward to working with you and our students and making your association with Weetangera Primary School a fulfilling, productive and a rewarding experience.
