Principal's Message

Welcome to Macquarie Primary School's website, I hope your find it full of information about our school and what makes it such a community hub.

We balance respecting the many traditions established over Macquarie's 50 year history, and we continue to embrace the future, through evidence based 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. This occurs each year through formal means such as the school satisfaction survey and more informally through school requests for feedback and community generated commentary.  Currently we are focusing on increasing student leadership and agency and developing environmental sustainability skills and knowledge.

Creativity and curiosity are nurtured at Macquarie Primary School, and inquiry is the basis of our learning philosophy. In addition to explicit teaching and learning in literacy and numeracy, our students engage in inquiries to develop their understanding in a wide range of curriculum and 21st century skills.

We believe in and foster genuine partnerships in and out of our school with the broader community. We welcome volunteers, both regular and incidental, have a strong commitment to teacher development through hosting undergraduate teachers and ongoing relationships with services such as the School Volunteer Program, Rotary and Belconnen Community Services.

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 more about our programs, or to enquire about our enrolment process.
