This term we have once again transitioned back to an online learning environment. There is limited onsite supervision and is only available for students whose parents cannot work from home, or if the student has a disability, or is vulnerable. Parents are required to submit an application request form on the Thursday of the week prior to the requested supervision. Any students requiring onsite supervision will also be temperature tested. Adults onsite will continue to practise social distancing and parents are encouraged not to come on campus. Any person over 12 years of age must wear a mask at school. Staff do not need to wear a mask whilst delivering instruction. At this stage all camps and excursions have been cancelled or postponed. Extra-curricula activities WILL NOT be happening on site. We are committed to continue offering a safe and inviting environment for all staff and students when they need to attend the school.
Enrolments - Any prospective parents are welcome to contact the school and meet with the principal, Dr Adrian Waters, but formal school tours into classrooms will not be conducted. We can however certainly chat about what our school has to offer and elaborate on our programs, facilities and learning philosophy. Currently we are accepting enrolments for 2021.
Before and After school care facilities continue as normal during Term 3. Please make your bookings via 'Theircare.'
Bellbrae Primary School offers students, staff and families a strong sense of community and belonging. This enables our students to develop and grow in a unique environment that is enjoyable, supportive, relevant and able to offer challenges that empower students to be 21st Century life-long learners. In 2020 we have 484 students and in excess of 35 staff members across all facets of the school, yet are able to offer a strong sense of community where individuals are respected and appreciated. The school is highly committed to the mental health and well-being of all students, with an active welfare program falling under the banner of school wide positive behaviors. The school offers STEM, Performing Arts, Indonesian, Visual Arts, Library and Physical Education as 'specialist' subjects, and has support, intervention and extension programs in place.
