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.

Grade 6 Student Leader Fundraiser

A team of our Grade 6 leaders, led by Mimi Curran, decided they would like to raise money for children less fortunate. All money raised will go to ORPHFUND –African Orphans. Mimi has already made her own donation, to this worthwhile cause. Mimi donated $80.00 of her own birthday money. The children will be organising a sleepover at school to raise money. They will eat very little and sleep on the floor so they are experiencing the same poor conditions af some of the children in Africa.

If you would like to contribute some money to this cause, you can make a donation at the office.

If you have any questions about this fundraising activity, please contact Anne Robinson.

If you would like any more information about this cause, please visit the website below:

Volleyball Regional Championships

Last Thursday, nine Grade Six boys travelled to Swan Hill with Miss Mayne and Mr Cav, to compete in the Loddon Mallee Region Championships. The boys played one game against Kennington Primary School and were victorious! In the first set the nerves were evident and the boys went down. After a pep talk and some reassuring words, the boys calmed down and showed great composure and skill, winning the second set convincingly. It all came down to the third and final set. Win and we would progress to the State Championships, lose and this was the end of our volleyball campaign. Again, the boys won this set comfortably and have now qualified for the State Championships in Melbourne later this month. The hard work and dedication shown by all of these boys is commendable. Good luck in Melbourne!
