Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to the Chidlow Primary School website.  We hope this website gives you all the information you need to know about our wonderful school.

At Chidlow Primary School we are committed to being an excellent school by providing a safe and supportive learning environment in which we strive to ensure that every student is a successful student and each teacher is highly effective. Chidlow PS prides itself on our motto of “Working Together” and parents are encouraged to be active participants in their child’s schooling.

We know the importance of students’ physical, emotional and social well being on student achievement, happiness and success at school and we work hard to nurture and develop this. The school enjoys much success in all sporting endeavours and a whole school focus on sustainability drives an integrated curriculum across the school.  Our programs are enhanced through collaboration with associated professionals including school support staff, a school psychologist and a school chaplain.

Specialist programs in Physical Education, Science and Italian are part of the students’ learning program. Technology is a feature of the school comprising a very well-equipped computer laboratory, school wide network, interactive whiteboards in every classroom and iPads and laptops for teacher and student use.

The teaching of social and emotional health and well being has been reinforced with the continuation of the PATHS (Promoting Alternative Thinking Strategies) Program. Students, staff and parents view Chidlow Primary as a good school where the staff care for the students and work hard to improve learning outcomes.

We work closely with our community and value your opinions and feedback.  Please contact us if you require any additional information, or have any questions.
