Enrolments open for Docklands Primary Image

By Meg Hill

Docklands Primary School (interim name) is opening its doors in January 2021. Its architectural design and proximity to the city will offer a unique educational opportunity – and enrolments have just opened.

As reported in the July edition of Docklands News, the school’s foundation principal Adam Bright was recently appointed and said he was very excited about meeting the students and families who will make up the first year at Docklands Primary School.

The school will incorporate modern learning spaces, a library, music and art room, outdoor learning terraces and a competition-grade indoor court for basketball and netball.

“An on-site early learning centre with two kindergarten rooms and 66 kindergarten places will also be included. Having the kindergarten and school together will help local children make a smooth transition from pre-school and reduce the number of drop-offs for some parents with kindergarten and school-aged children,” Mr Bright said.

“The school will develop a knowledge rich curriculum and have a strong focus on developing the foundational skills of literacy and numeracy. It will strive to develop professional excellence and knowledge of world’s best practice and will constantly inspire students to become curious and engaged in authentic learning experiences.”

“Social and emotional wellness will always be at the forefront and the school will ensure children have an active voice in their development. Additionally, physical activity and healthy life habits will be taught and promoted. Students will learn to be resilient and self-motivated with an ability to articulate their goals and aspirations.” •
