Welcome to MacFarlane Primary School.
We strive to work in partnership with our families and acknowledge that parents are the first and foremost educators of their children. We see it as a privilege to work in partnership with you, sharing the responsibilities of educating your child. This year at MacFarlane we hope to make greater partnerships with our families and the wider community through activities celebrated at Harmony Day, Big Breakfasts, parent meetings and our Volunteer Reading Program.
Our classrooms are well equipped with interactive whiteboards and pods of computers installed in each class. A sound field system is also installed in each room and students have access to a computer lab. The sound field systems assist our students with hearing impairment as well as reducing strain on teachers’ voices. The library is well resourced with an extensive collection of fiction and non-fiction resources, a comprehensive teachers’ resource collection along with a wide-ranging collection of readers that students use in class as well as taking home to share with older siblings and parents. The home reading collection is currently being upgraded.
Our teachers are very caring and supportive. They build on what students know and challenge students to learn more. I welcome you to explore our website and visit our school. I am proud of our students, staff and the wider school community who all embrace our school values of respect, responsibility and resilience.
