Principal's Message

Welcome to Macquarie Primary School's website, and thank you for taking time to learn a little about our school.

Macquarie has a long held reputation as a community school, where students, parents and the broader community work together with a dedicated professional team to ensure every child achieves success. With families from around the world, Macquarie Primary School is proudly multicultural.

While respecting the many traditions established over Macquarie's 50 year history, we continue to embrace change, through innovative classroom programs. As part of our ongoing commitment to achieving the highest standards, students, staff and the community regularly review our progress and future directions. Currently we are pursuing innovation around student leadership and environmental sustainability.

Creativity and curiosity are nurtured at Macquarie Primary School, and inquiry is the basis of our learning philosophy. In addition to a targeted focus on literacy and numeracy, our students engage in inquiries to develop their understanding of cultural heritage, human dignity and what it means to be a steward of our changing world.

High levels of community and professional support enable the progress of every student every day at Macquarie. We welcome volunteers, young people undertaking school based apprenticeships, and our strong connection with teacher education at the University of Canberra.

I hope you enjoy exploring our website, and that you find a chance to visit Macquarie in the near future. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you would like to learn a little more about our programs, or to enquire about our enrolment process.
