Welcome to Marion Primary School
Marion Primary School is a KidsMatter school. We endeavor to develop confident, responsible, independent learners who contribute successfully to the future. We aim for personal excellence, continuous learning, and care and respect for each other and the environment. We have a commitment to improve teaching and learning in literacy, numeracy, assessment and planning and science. Our focus is building a positive school culture where staff, students and parents work together to achieve improved outcomes.
We aim to develop our students' resilience in a safe, supportive and respectful environment.
Student Voice is actively fostered through Student Representative Council (SRC) with students from all year levels participating. The SRC meets fortnightly to follow up issues raised through classroom meetings. Additional student representation occurs through Student Action Teams including Wellbeing, Grounds, Fundraising and Canteen. Students with staff support contribute to decisions made within the school and initiate projects that benefit the school and its community.
Each year our Senior Choir made up of years 5, 6 and 7 students enters into the Festival of Music. Music is valued within the school through class programs, Junior and Senior Choirs and students learning a range of string instruments such as violin, viola and cello. In 2015, Ukulele lessons will be taught to Year 6 and 7 students. Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is utilised across the curriculum and all classrooms have interactive whiteboards and internet access. Spanish is the language other than English and is taught from Reception to Year 7.
During lunchtimes there are a variety of clubs offered by our Pastoral Care Worker including Crafts and Student Action Teams supported by staff including fundraising, games, dance and gardening.
After-school sports are a focus supported by numbers of parent coaches and team managers. The range of sports offered includes cricket, football, netball and soccer. We also represent strongly in SAPSASA competitions in Athletics, Football and Netball.
Our main building was totally refurbished in 2010. We work in a calm, bright and light environment with open classrooms, shared spaces, wet areas and toilets. Our extensive grounds and playing spaces are continuously being developed.
