Our Visions, Our Values, Our School.

MWPS Vision

MWPS provides an engaging environment where children are challenged and motivated to become the best they can be.

MWPS Values

Resilience • Respect • Excellence • Pride

Our School

Mildura West Primary School is a vibrant and happy place to be. It offers an excellent range of educational opportunities, programs, facilities and resources. The school has approximately 390 students from a diverse range of backgrounds and nations. This diversity is one of the characteristics that make it a great school. Children learn best when parents/carers, teachers and students are partners in the education process. An ‘Open Door’ policy and regular communication ensure this happens. Parents trust that we take very good care of their children. The children at West are always placed first. All decisions are made with the student in the centre. Our School Values, Resilience, Respect, Excellence and Pride, are truly ‘alive’ and evident in all that we do.
 

National Ride2School Day

National Ride2school Day is to encourage our students and families to be involved in any active travel such as walking, riding and skateboarding. Next week we will have our first Walking Bus for Term 1 to coincide with National Ride2School Day.  We have the Walking Bus once a month with the police and Neighbourhood Watch supervising it. Everyone is welcome: walkers, bikes, trikes, scooters and even prams. The ‘bus’ will leave the corner of Washington Drive and Riverside Avenue at 8:30am. You can ‘board’ the bus on the way!!

Grade 5 Lake Cullulleraine Camp Reminder

The Grade 5 Camp to Lake Cullulleraine is fast approaching. Please make sure you have paid the camp in full by this Monday 19th March 2018. Unfortunately, if the camp is not paid in full your child will not be able to attend the camp.

Have you seen your child at school lately? Log onto Seesaw.

Last Friday we sent a flyer home. Have you logged on to view

your child’s profile yet? It’ll show you a few snaps of classroom happenings.

What is Seesaw?

Seesaw is a secure online Journal to record photos, observations and comments, to build up a record of your child’s experiences during their time with us. This platform allows us to work with parents and carers to share information and communicate the children’s learning in and outside of the classroom.

Why use Seesaw?

We are always looking at ways we can improve our communication with parents. Seesaw will allow us to share more of what your child is doing at school and provide a window into the classroom. 

These are some of the photos that have already been shared on the SeeSaw app!!

 

Swimming

Last Friday Tom Pratt and Ruby Hancock represented the school at the Sunraysia Primary Schools Swimming competition. Ruby competed in freestyle and breaststroke, coming 2nd and 5th in her heats. Tom competed in freestyle placing 4th in his heat. A wonderful effort by both students.

While there are still some work crews and heavy machinery completing final works and crossing upgrades, the train’s lines are back in full use. Please observe signs and signals, and traffic laws, when approaching the Rail Crossings. This includes crossings immediately adjacent to our school on Ninth Street and Tenth Street.

Easter Raffle

Our Easter Raffle is on again, we are asking families to support our fundraising efforts by kindly donating an Easter-themed item to each of your children’s classrooms. A box has been placed in each classroom for these donations.

Each child will be asked to sell raffle tickets to family and friends. Tickets are $1 each and there are 10 tickets in a book. Please return all sold tickets and money to the front office by 9am on Wednesday, March 28th 2018. Winners will be announced in the weekly newsletter.
