Our School

Ormiston Primary School is an exciting place for learners of all ages!

Our educative philosophy puts the whole learner at the centre of what we do. Our approach is inclusive, purposeful and interest based. We aim to grow capabilities while fostering curiosity. Our learners gain a strong foundation of skills, knowledge and the key competencies.  We all make creative use of our innovative learning environments ensuring social, engaging and authentic learning is a daily norm.

 

Our mantra is “if there is a better way we will find it” and thus we make changes as needed to meet the needs of our learners.  

 

Our Learning Coaches are all lifelong learners with a growth mindset who love children and thrive on providing fun, yet challenging, learning experiences. We will have capacity for over 700 learners with the Phase 2 build- exciting!
