Principal’s Message

Welcome to the website of Ascot Vale West Primary School.  It is my privilege to lead a school with such a rich history and diversity.  Ascot Vale West Primary School is a vibrant and dynamic learning community, committed to providing a high-quality learning experience for all students.  Our aim is to ensure that our students are given the environment in which to thrive and the opportunities to achieve in all areas of school life.

Students at Ascot Vale West Primary School embody our school values of Be a Leaner, Be Safe and Be Respectful. Students are enabled to participate in a variety of programs and activities that support their academic, social and emotional growth. The student leadership opportunities provided to our students creates an engaging and interesting environment that promotes student voice and agency.

Our dedicated and enthusiastic teachers are passionate about evidence based, high-quality teaching and learning programs that are underpinned by the Victorian Curriculum.  They are supported and encouraged to continually develop their expertise and knowledge to ensure teaching and learning is at the point of need for all students.

The school prides itself on its community approach to education and welcomes the involvement of parents in the education of your child. As parents, your participation in the education programs and your interest in the school activities will value-add considerably to the enjoyment of your child’s primary school years. We work in partnership with our School Council and Parents and Families Committee to encourage and provide opportunities for involvement and participation in all facets of school life.

My Leadership Team and I are proud to be able to lead Ascot Vale West Primary School. Choosing the right primary school is one of the most important decisions you will make for your child, so I invite you to visit our school and discover all that we have to offer. Meet our staff, inspect our facilities, discuss our programs and most importantly, ask questions. Please make a time to see our wonderful school.
