At Howrah Primary school, we stand for excellence in everything we do. We are strongly guided by the Education Department values of courage, aspiration, respect and growth and actively live these values every day at our school. Our school motto “Every child, every chance, every day” guides our planning and actions across the entire school community.
Since our doors opened in 1961 we have built a proud tradition of academic, sporting and creative achievement supported by a strong and active school community. We take great pride in offering a warm, nurturing and natural environment to provide our students with an exceptional all-round education and a lifelong love of learning. Our student enrolment currently stands above 600 students who live locally.
I believe that the well-being of our students complements their academic success. Our focus is on developing the individual skills and attributes of our students, to help them thrive in an increasingly complex world. Howrah Primary School seeks to offer an increasingly diverse academic curriculum that works hand in hand with pastoral care programs that are fully supported by senior staff, support staff and teachers. We are known as a welcoming and warm school who care about every individual.
Howrah Primary School is blessed with wide open spaces, beautiful grounds and well-appointed facilities. We continually work to enhance our learning environment and technology to meet the ever-changing needs of education.
Our teachers are highly qualified and well-respected members of the community, encouraged to undertake professional learning and stay at the forefront of their profession. Our teaching staff work with dedication and a true commitment to the growth of each and every student.
We are very proud of our school and the excellence we expect and achieve, without compromising the friendly and inclusive environment we have created.
Please accept my invitation to join me for a personal campus tour enabling you to experience the warmth and vibrancy of our school.
I look forward to welcoming you and your family to the wonderful community of Howrah Primary School.
