From the Principal

Welcome to Bertram Primary School  

Our school is dedicated to a vision that is based around Aspire, Connect and Enrich (ACE).  

  • Our school community creates lifelong learners who aspire to achieve excellence through high expectations we set for ourselves and others.
  • We create a connected community of global citizens who embrace and value diversity.
  • We provide a supportive and inclusive environment that enriches genuine, meaningful opportunities for success.

Our school priorities mapped out in the 2021 – 2023 Business Plan and will be based around Excellence in Teaching and Learning and Partnerships across our school community.

Specifically, as a school community we have identified the following focus areas:

Students as global citizens
Develop an inclusive learning community supporting students’ growth and responsibility. 
Culture of academic achievement 
Every student is supported to maximise their potential and achieve individual academic excellence. 
Excellence in professional practice 
All staff collaboratively engage in professional learning, and implement practices that develop lifelong learners. 
Strong and sustainable partnerships 
Foster and maintain relationships within the school and the wider community.

We believe that every child can learn and achieve. The twin strategies of achieving academic excellence and providing holistic education provide clear directions for teachers who are being challenged to design programs and activities that make learning meaningful and enjoyable resulting in children that enjoy school, strive for achievement and are more confident. These concerted efforts of dedicated teachers and motivated students have resulted in developing academic results.

Going forth, the school will continue to enhance a learner-centred school environment through engaging and motivating students as participants in their own learning processes, creating positive school experiences that foster thinking and life-long learning and forging effective partnerships with other stakeholders in education. 

Our school will also continue to build a quality teaching staff through facilitating teachers’ acquisition of knowledge & skills and broadening of experiences to enable them to better prepare our students for the future. 

We encourage all parents and carers to join us in being actively engaged in their child’s education and developing strong partnerships that result in positive outcomes for members of our learning community.

Best wishes for your education journey.
