Ms Wallace says...
I believe that all children are unique and special and our job as teachers is to find out what they are capable of and where to take them next on their journey of learning and development. Being a part of children's learning and development is a privilege. It is a delight to see them learn and achieve and in doing so answer the questions they have about the world around them.
At Fadden Primary School we focus on the academic, physical, social and emotional development of students. We maintain high expectations for student’s learning and interactions with others. Teachers provide learning programs which offer support as well as extension opportunities for students. Students have the opportunity to engage in a range of rich extra curricula events as well as their quality daily learning programs.
In 2017 we commence our new Strategic Plan with a focus on literacy, numeracy and wellbeing. I look forward to working towards our new priorities with students, staff and families.
