Welcome to Preston South Primary School No. 824 – a school with a proud history since 1866.

The school is located in a bustling area of Preston close to Bell City. We are a vibrant learning community with a warm and friendly atmosphere. Our mission is to provide our students with the best possible learning opportunities and programs.

We believe that students flourish when they are engaged in a challenging academic program within a safe nurturing environment. We aim to extend knowledge, develop skills, ignite passions and provide choice. Our approach is aimed at ensuring each student has the confidence, skills and experience to excel in life beyond school.

The school’s motto "Educating for Life" epitomises our belief that there needs to be a whole school approach to educating our students for tomorrow’s world. We recognise that education needs to place a high priority on literacy, numeracy, communication, innovative thinking and learning, general knowledge and most of all a concern for the wellbeing of ourselves, others and the environment.

Our school promotes a set of values which empowers students to make positive contributions to the school and wider communities.

Preston South Primary School values:

  1. Respect
  2. Responsibility
  3. Achievement
  4. Co-operation

At Preston South Primary School we recognise that parents and carers play a critical role in the education of their children. Parental involvement in its various forms positively impacts student achievement.

The school is dedicated to providing:

  • A personalised and differentiated learning experience for each student
  • A whole-school approach that embeds student safety and wellbeing throughout all components of schooling.
  • Teachers who are dedicated to finding new ways to teach and learn, providing additional support and reflecting on best practice.

I warmly invite you to visit Preston South Primary School where I would personally be delighted to show you around our school and discuss with you how we may be able to cater for the individual needs of your child.

Kind Regards

Leon Leonidas
