Our Visions, Our Values, Our School.

MWPS Vision

MWPS provides an engaging environment where children are challenged and motivated to become the best they can be.
 
Mildura West Primary School is an International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Program accredited IB World School.
 
IB World Schools share a common philosophy - a commitment to improve the teaching and learning of a diverse and inclusive community of students by delivering challenging, high quality programmes of international education that share a powerful vision.
 
Mission Statement from IB - The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. To this end the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment. These programs encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
 

*Only schools authorized by the International Baccalaureate can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme or the IB Career-related Certificate (IBCC). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted. For further information about the IB and its programmes, visit www.ibo.org

MWPS Values

Resilience • Respect • Excellence • Pride

Our School

Mildura West Primary School is a vibrant and happy place to be. It offers an excellent range of educational opportunities, programs, facilities and resources. The school has approximately 390 students from a diverse range of backgrounds and nations. This diversity is one of the characteristics that make it a great school. Children learn best when parents/carers, teachers and students are partners in the education process. An ‘Open Door’ policy and regular communication ensure this happens. Parents trust that we take very good care of their children. The children at West are always placed first. All decisions are made with the student in the centre. Our School Values, Resilience, Respect, Excellence and Pride, are truly ‘alive’ and evident in all that we do.
 

MWPS Concert

As you know, our students are rehearsing for our concert. It’s been great to see such joy on the children’s faces as they dance around the gym. The concert will be recorded on Tuesday, November 10. We will supply the viewing details next week.

This year Victoria will celebrate World Teachers' Day on Friday 30 October 2020.

The theme this year is:  'Teachers: leading in crisis, reimagining the future'.

This theme reflects the commitment teachers have made as leaders particularly teaching throughout the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, in a range of environments.

World Teachers' Day is a chance to recognise and celebrate the incredible contributions teachers have made in Victorian communities, as they help to teach the future.

Teachers (with support from parents and carers) have ensured education continues across the country this year, despite major challenges. It’s reinforced the significant role teacher’s play in the lives of children and students, their families and communities.

Mildura West P.S. has a fantastic team of teachers. I would like to say a very BIG THANK YOU to our teachers for their commitment and passion.

It’s a little “park” in the middle of our school

Have you popped your head in the back gate to see our new beautiful lawn and trees? It’s DIVINE! There’s lots of green lawn to roll around on and many beautiful trees to sit under. We are waiting for the lawn to get settled and then all of the fences will come down and our children will be able to use this wonderful new space.

Seesaw – Please activate

Please ensure your See Saw is activated. During the pandemic, communication is more important than ever. Parents/Carers are not permitted on the school grounds, so it’s vital we communicate through See Saw, Compass, email, phone and text.
