Principal's Message

Wentworthville Public School serves a diverse community with a dedicated parent group. There are approximately 540 students enrolled from Kindergarten to Year 6, including three multi-categorical classes for students with special learning needs and/or autism.

The school has been delivering quality public education for some 125 years and we celebrated this significant birthday in 2016. Our school values the opportunities we can provide our students in a variety of endeavours, including: academic achievement, the performing arts, sporting opportunities, wellbeing programs and leadership.

The school recognises the traditional custodians of the land and the diversity within our community. We value the collaboration between all members of our school community and always strive to provide a trusting and secure environment. We respect the rights and beliefs of others. 92% of our community comes from a language background other than English, with over 40 ethnic/cultural groups represented. The core values of our school are excellence, diversity, collaboration and caring.

Wentworthville has a highly dedicated staff, with diverse teaching experience. The school enjoys a good range of enthusiastic young teachers supported by highly skilled and experienced colleagues. A strength of the staff is their ongoing commitment to collaboration, teamwork and excellence. Teachers work across four Stage Teams, led by Assistant Principals to create teaching and learning programs that provide a range of learning opportunities carefully designed to meet the needs of each student across the curriculum.

All students within the school are encouraged to be at school, to learn and try their best, and this is underpinned by the PBL core values of being a:

  • safe,
  • respectful
  • learner.

Our school is committed to developing each student into a responsible, safe and respectful learner and Positive Behaviour for Learning remains a strong focus to ensure students are engaged and active citizens in the classroom and the community.

I am very proud to be the Principal at Wentworthville Public School where we aim to have a growth mindset and put students at the centre of our decision making. I would like to acknowledge the dedicated work of the executive team who partner in leading this great school. It is a pleasure to work alongside committed, professional staff, courteous students and positive parents and to lead this wonderful school is an honour.

I hope you might join us at Wentworthville Public School and be part of a wonderful growing community!
