Principals Welcome

Principals Welcome

Darlington Primary School is a culturally rich and diverse school incorporating mainstream classes and an Intensive English Language Program.

We recognise that schooling has a major impact on the life of a child outside of their family. We strive to provide a high quality educational program and to focus on ways to improve the educational experiences provided to students. Developing expert learners through high expectations across all learning areas through purposeful opportunities within a supportive learning community develops students who are resilient and confident to take risks with their learning.

Our schools values are Respect, Responsibility and Resilience. These are demonstrated by staff and students alike. We incorporate Play Is The Way (PITW) as the major vehicle for social emotional learning incorporating this within all students learning.

Darlington Primary School has a strong music program both internally and through the Instrumental Music Program of the Department for Education. The school encourages students to participate in the Instrumental Music Program. This program allows students to explore and express themselves through music and performing arts.

At Darlington Primary School we aim for a holistic approach to all children and their families promoting a sense of belonging within our school community. Each term we have whole school celebrations where students showcase their learning and the school community celebrates their achievements.

I look forward to the opportunity to speak with you further about the school. Please call and make a time to come and tour the school or to attend one of our open mornings.
