Message from our Principal

Dear Parents, Students and Community Members,


I am thrilled to extend a warm welcome to each and every one of you to Silverton Primary School. As the Principal, I am extremely proud to welcome you to our school. As a community, we stand for our values, embrace diversity, and foster a sense of belonging.


At Silverton, we hold the core values of Respect, Resilience, Gratitude, Empathy and Curiosity close to our hearts. These values are not just words, they are the foundation upon which our school community is built. We believe that by instilling these values in our students, we are not only shaping them into responsible citizens but also preparing them to thrive in an ever-changing world.


We believe that a strong community is the backbone of a successful educational journey. Together, we create an environment where open communication, collaboration and mutual support flourish. Parents, staff and students come together to create a nurturing atmosphere that encourages growth, both academically and personally.


Diversity is one of our greatest strengths at Silverton Primary School. We proudly celebrate our multicultural community, recognising that our differences enrich our learning experiences and broaden our perspectives. In an increasingly interconnected world, we believe that understanding and appreciating diverse cultures is essential for fostering global citizens who can thrive in a global society.


At Silverton, we are lucky to have excellent facilities and a wide range of programs to support and cater for the learning needs and interests of our students. Some of Silverton’s programs include Literacy and Numeracy Workshops, Discovery Time for students in Foundation to Year Two, Student Voice Groups, a range of intervention and extension programs, as well as specialist programs including PE, Music, Visual Arts, Science, STEM and Mandarin. We also offer a range of extra-curricular activities including Instrumental Music, Chess, Dance Troup, Glee Club, Marine Ambassadors program and many more.



Our school facilities include five open flexible learning centres, media centre with green screen and recording studio, visual arts room, gymnasium, instrumental music room, dance studio, EAL classroom, LOTE (Mandarin), science and STEM centre. Outdoor facilities include an undercover performance area, environmental pond area, school vegetable garden and chicken coup, full size oval, three playgrounds catering for all ages, as well as synthetic hard-court areas with markings for basketball, netball, tennis and volleyball. 



As the Principal, my door is always open. I encourage you to reach out to me or any member of our dedicated staff if you have questions, concerns or ideas. We value your input and partnership in ensuring the success of our students.



Thank you for entrusting us with the privilege of educating and nurturing your children. Together, we will continue to create a safe, supportive, and inspiring learning environment that prepares our students for a bright future.


Thank you,
