Puckapunyal Primary School offers a comprehensive educational program to cater for the transient population that it serves. However, with up to 50% turnover each year, no program can ever be regarded as finalised or completed, and the school must constantly attend to its business of developing literacy and numeracy, and all curriculum areas.
Teachers are encouraged to set and expect high standards from their students. The school is organised along traditional lines with some composite grades as required.
Pride in all aspects of the school’s operation is evident through a genuinely open administration and welcoming classroom environment.
The school has developed an excellent relationship with the Australian Army, and enjoys an outstanding reputation of providing for the needs of children of service personnel. This has led to excellent support to the school in many areas.
A dedicated and professional staff with wide ranging skills and abilities is a vital asset to Puckapunyal Primary School. A comprehensive Professional Development program for staff ensures that innovative curriculum programs and teaching methods are incorporated into the program.
We are committed to the following strategies:
Encouraging friendship, Improving self-concept, Developing pride in the school, Promoting sharing, tolerance and compassion, Developing respect, acknowledging differences, Applying consistent, logical discipline,Encouraging responsible play.
