ABOUT US

Our school is structured around three communities of learners: The Nest, Broad Street and New Street.

The Nest is a combined Preschool and Reception group, with adapted principles of Reggio Emilia at its core. There are three home groups within the Nest and a large award-winning outdoor learning environment for children to explore.

Our educators all work in a team-teaching scenario where ongoing communication, good planning, and clear commitment have contributed to the building of a highly supportive and welcoming team.

Alberton has a very long history and in 2017 we celebrated our 125th year.

Values

At Alberton Primary we have five school values that are the foundation for everything we do.

    Curiosity

    Connection

    Respect

    Wellbeing

    Governing Council

    The council engages with families, supports school leadership and works in the best interests of all children of the school.

    Our Governing Council meets twice per term. While meetings are not open for others to attend, feedback and input are always invited. The dates of these meetings are available on request via the email address below.

    The Governing Council has oversight of OSHC and the Canteen, and provides a forum for the involvement of families to ensure that the cultural and social diversity of the community is represented.

    Governing Council is made up of parents elected at the Annual General Meeting, the Principal, and a staff representative. Governing Council parent members are elected as individuals, rather than as representatives of particular groups or interests within the community. There are also positions for three people nominated by an Aboriginal parent group and Governing Council may co-opt up to two community members.
