Welcome to Windermere. The future is now…

 

At Windermere Primary School our mission is to prepare students to be literate, numerate, responsible citizens who value learning and continually challenge themselves in everything that they do. Easy to say, harder to do.

 

To achieve this goal, all of our staff are singularly focused on one thing… your child. They bring their passions into the classroom and develop deep, caring relationships that inspire a true love of learning. Our teachers pay close attention to the social, emotional and academic needs of each individual, adapting the curriculum and learning that makes sure that we fuel the fire more than fill the bucket.  Put simply, a good school knows your child by name, a great school knows your child by heart.

 

We are a state of the art 21st century learning environment catering for 650 students in a schools within school concept. We divide our school into four learning pods each of which cater for the age and developmental needs of their students whilst all pods share our same school principles and whole school approaches to the social, emotional and learning needs of our students.

 

In 2018 we opened our purpose built Reggio Emilia inspired Early Learning Centre to cater for our 0 to 6 year old children and families. The first of its kind in Tasmania surrounded by two nature based playgrounds to inspire learning through student inspired provocations.
