Bentleigh West Primary School extends a very warm welcome back to everyone, particularly our new families that are beginning their journey with us this year.
BWPS consistently sees our students two years ahead of peers, building foundation skills, confidence and the knowledge for our students to confidently apply their learning in the real world and have an excellent preparation for Secondary School. This enhances our students’ ability to take opportunities as they progress through their schooling and ultimately be life-long learners.
A quick glance at NAPLAN data shows BWPS has increased its performance over time to be well ahead of schools with similar students, including private schools, displaying the importance of training excellent teachers to deliver a well-rounded curriculum to ensure no matter what the measure our students are taught well and will perform well on any assessment.
We have seen the expansion of our Visual Arts program with a new
$450,000 Arts studio offering a wider range of Art skills including 3D Art. This will add to the quality of our Art Walk Show Case at the end of the year and see many of our students display works around the community.
We are building our Performing Arts in the program with choirs, school bands and spot performances for students who enjoy the performing arts or don’t know that they do yet. We encourage entertainment in our assemblies and other forums.
Our sports program is growing with focus and structure on skill development, game style and tactics that will feed into our sporting competitions and see our students have the opportunity to compete with and against the very best while developing all foundation skills to foster a love for sport, activity and healthy lifestyle.
Our leadership team oversee staff development as we look to continue to build the knowledge and skill of our teachers and add value to the public system as well.
