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.
 
Mildura West Primary School is an International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Program accredited IB World School.
 
IB World Schools share a common philosophy - a commitment to improve the teaching and learning of a diverse and inclusive community of students by delivering challenging, high quality programmes of international education that share a powerful vision.
 
Mission Statement from IB - 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. To this end the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment. These programs encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
 

*Only schools authorized by the International Baccalaureate can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme or the IB Career-related Certificate (IBCC). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted. For further information about the IB and its programmes, visit www.ibo.org

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.

It’s a little “park” in the middle of our school

Have you popped your head in the back gate to see our new beautiful lawn and trees? It’s DIVINE! There’s lots of green lawn to roll around on and many beautiful trees to sit under. We are waiting for the lawn to get settled and then all of the fences will come down and our children will be able to use this wonderful new space.

Seesaw – Please activate

Please ensure your See Saw is activated. During the pandemic, communication is more important than ever. Parents/Carers are not permitted on the school grounds, so it’s vital we communicate through See Saw, Compass, email, phone and text.

Dance Rehearsals

Everyone is dancing the day away & loving it. Our concert will be pre-recorded for all to see. We will let you know the details ASAP. Although the pandemic has prevented so many school activities it’s super that we can still provide some music and joy in such a performance

HATS PLEASE – Let’s be Sun smart!
All students must wear a hat in term 4.
The hat needs to be part of our school uniform, navy and preferably have a broad rim.
This is in line with our School Sun Smart Policy.
Please ensure your child’s hat is clearly named.
If children do not wear a hat then they must go under the shade area.

STUDENT SAFETY – PICK UP & DROP OFF

STUDENT SAFETY – PICK UP & DROP OFF
Back of school.
Parking at Pick up time- 3:15pm – Back of the School.
As you are aware there are some major building works happening in the middle of the school, we can’t wait to see our new landscaped area. Consequently traffic flow of pedestrian children out of school and cars is now more congested.
To help keep the back exit of the school safe, please:
 Obey traffic parking restrictions in Cypress Ave (There is a No Standing zone 3-4pm) Council have patrolled and fined people in the past.
 Park in the Car Park and wait along Cypress Ave for your child.
 Park in 10th Street and collect your child from Cypress Ave. (A patrolled children’s crossing is available on 10th St)
 Park on Ontario Ave and organise for your child to exit from the Oval gate on Ontario Ave.
As a part of our Healthy Schools initiative, we are also planning to have a Drop and Stride zone at Mansell Reserve (This has been delayed due to COVID). We encourage families to think of this as a great alternative to get some exercise and transport safely to school.
Front of school
Please ensure you park in the designated parks. DO NOT park in the school driveway.
Please respect other drivers and be very, very careful of our children.
