Road Safety

Your children are very important to us and we want them to arrive safely at school.

Please make sure you are supervising your children cross the roads before and after school, or have them use the supervised school crossings located in Ninth Street & Tenth Street. There have been several near misses with children running onto the road to make their way to school.

Please if you are driving through the school zones be extra vigilant that there are small children around.

The Mildura Rural City Council have advised that they will be checking, so please be aware of the local laws signage and regulations for parking.

WHY? What will the teachers be doing?

MWPS Teachers will be learning all about the International Baccalaureate.

We are very excited to be spending 3 days (Sunday, Monday & Tuesday) learning all about the International Baccalaureate and how best to implement it in our school and improve the education we offer your children.

The 2 presenters are from International Baccalaureate schools in Malaysia and China. We are very fortunate to have such experienced, passionate leaders in education facilitate our 3 days . They have been teaching in IB schools for many years.

Why are we becoming an IB school?

We truly think IB will enhance your child’s education.

The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.

An IB education encourages students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners.

The IB focuses on developing the kind of student who, in the struggle to establish a personal set of values and a code of ethics, will be laying the foundation upon which international-mindedness will develop and flourish.

We will be providing information all about IB throughout the year.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
