From the Principal

I would like to extend a warm welcome to the Launching Place Primary School web site.  This site is continually being updated and provides access to a broad range of information about our school, its programs and upcoming events.


I extend a warm welcome to you and your family to Launching Place Primary School.

“Learning starts in infancy, long before formal education begins and continues throughout life”.

I am very proud to be the Principal of this wonderful school. Launching Place Primary is a dynamic learning community that has at its core positive and constructive relationships where the expectation is high... learning is relevant, deep and real... where structure and support facilitates progress for every student.  There is a strong emphasis on striving for personal best and on the holistic development of the student.

It is a privilege for me to work with our students, our staff and our families to make our school the very best it can be. My aim is to lead our school community to enable us to work together to achieve our goals.

We aim to create a safe, nurturing yet challenging environment that is built on positive relationships; developing the whole student – emotionally, socially and academically. We care for and appreciate each of our students as the unique individuals that they are, each with distinct talents, interests and needs, and each with differing learning styles.

Providing the best learning opportunities for each and every student

Launching Place is a school dedicated to providing the best learning opportunities for each and every student. We provide an appealing and stimulating curriculum that is flexible and tailored to the needs of each and every student as we strive for high educational outcomes and personal bests for all of our students. Our passionate teachers ensure our students grow in confidence and capabilities and develop the skills for the rapidly changing, 21st century living. Engaging learning programs that cater for individual differences and learning styles are devised and delivered by our skilled and dedicated teachers. We use innovative techniques, rich resources, proven instructional strategies and engaging programs to promote student learning. We develop in each of our students a curious, enquiring and discriminating mind, a desire for knowledge and a set of skills; linguistic, mathematical, scientific, artistic, physical, emotional and social.

We want each of our students to leave school with the values curiosity, respect, responsibility, empathy and striving for achievement underpinning all that they do. Our students develop responsibility for their own behaviour and the choices they make, and also a communal responsibility to assist their peers to do the same. Our students become strong in self-esteem and personal expectation and develop a healthy and respectful tolerance for others.

As Principal, my door is always open to parents wishing to discuss their child's progress or anything at all related to the school. I welcome and encourage you to be involved as this is the best way to "be learners for life” and be immersed in what schooling is about today. I look forward to meeting and working with you.

I would like to invite all who would like to visit our school to contact me to arrange a time for a personal tour. I would appreciate the opportunity to show you our wonderful school.


Thank you for visiting our website and welcome to our school.
