Principal's Welcome

It is my privilege as the Principal of Challa Gardens Primary School to welcome you to our school website.


Details within our website demonstrate that we work diligently as a united community to offer students a vast range of learning opportunities. Our orderly and focussed learning environment supports students to achieve personal, academic, aesthetic and sporting goals, while developing positive relationships.


Our professional and capable team of teaching and support staff respond to students individual learning needs by offering extension, enrichment and acceleration opportunities. We aim to engage all students in challenging, purposeful and inclusive learning activities. The staff demonstrates a strong commitment to the school in both curricular and co-curricular programs.


The ideal of global citizenship is reflected in our curriculum and is mirrored in the interactions between students and between staff and students in the everyday pattern of school life where students from over forty different cultural backgrounds work in harmony. Students are offered opportunities to develop globally relevant personal understandings through engagement with intercultural perspectives on issues.   This breadth and depth of perspective develops students with creative, community focussed leadership skills.


School tradition creates and sustains an ethos of achievement. The traditions and culture underpinning the school are nurtured and supported by the school community and the active involvement of the old scholars through school leadership awards. Our vision is to work collaboratively with our community to provide a quality, broad and relevant education for all students according to their skills and abilities in a caring and safe learning environment. We are committed to developing students who will become lifelong learners able to participate and contribute effectively to society. Our values of Honesty, Respect, Responsibility and Excellence and the school motto


Learn Grow and Achieve Together drive all student interaction.


Examples of our school in action demonstrate our consistent focus on high expectations and our goal of developing each student to their maximum potential enabling them to be effective citizens in a culturally diverse international community. I invite you to explore our website and to take advantage of the programs we offer.
