Engaging and inspiring students to thrive as active global citizens
Burrendah Primary School is a well-respected and high performing Independent Public School. We continue to celebrate and embrace our multicultural school population and we highly value our shared campus with Willetton Senior High School and Castlereagh School.
Our staff are committed to empowering every student through the delivery of quality teaching and learning programs. The school recognises and responds to the varied needs of students and their individual requirements for learning.
Staff and the School Board understand that partnering and collaborating with all members of our community is essential to fostering cohesive support and maximising our students’ learning to ensure we remain a high performing school.
The key focus areas and strategies that will guide our success as an inclusive, vibrant and innovative learning community over the next three years are: Engage, Endeavour and Excel. Building on these strategies we have detailed learning area operational plans to guide teachers’ curriculum planning and classroom practice.
As a school our vision is to engage and inspire students to thrive as active global citizens. To achieve this vision, our intention is to focus on pedagogical practices, learning environments, partnerships and digital technology that engages students in real world problems. This Deep Learning Framework embodies the process of students developing an understanding of being an active global citizen and seeking to make a difference to others and the world around them. To achieve this within the classroom environment, we intend to structure learning around the six global competencies of collaboration, communication, creativity, critical thinking, character and citizenship to thrive in a complex and ever-changing world.
