Movelle Primary School's computer network is a important key to our students' learning facilities. The school has iPads primarily for students in Years Prep - 2, with other students utilising iPads as part of our STEM classes and robotics. Students in Years 3-6 have new laptop computers purchased in 2018 to enhance their learning and support our STEM classes. Movelle houses a ICT lab with 25 computers, complete with touch screen to learn important ICT skills during students' time at Movelle. 

There are many accessories installed throughout Movelle, such as wireless technology, smart boards, TVs in every classroom, an Interactive Touch Learning Table, network printers and intranet services. Students work with this technology from Years Prep to 6.


Parents are welcomed and encouraged to participate in classroom programs. We are very fortunate to have a multi-cultural community where a sense of acceptance and tolerance is encouraged. Any parents wishing to help out at school or in the classroom are required to supply the school with their current Working with Children's Check.


 

Kinder to School Transition Program:

Later in the year, Movelle will operate a transition program that spans several weeks where kinder students can start to familiarise themselves with the school, our staff and the location of different areas that they will use when they start in Prep the following year.


Inquiries for enrolments can be made at our main office at any time. Please ring 9366 8892 for assistance.



ABOUT OUR SCHOOL:

 

 

 



Grade 1s in Leap Room


Looking at Movelle Primary School from the front of the school, it appears like most schools. However, it is not until you venture in, do you begin to notice the small subtleties that make us unique.


We are one of the few schools that has spent much time in preparing our school for our new prep enrolments. Our newly completed construction of our Language Experience Activity Program (LEAP) Centre. In our LEAP Centre, young eager minds will be provided with many experiences to help them develop their vocabulary's, their thinking and reasoning skills and opportunities to DO! Students will be engaged in "hands-on" Literacy, Numeracy, Science, Health and Physical Education tasks that will be designed to promote academic, physical and social responsibilities. As well as all that, there is an indoor physical activity playground to build co-ordination and strength. Along with the cooking area and construction area, our students will be engaged in relevant and purposeful learning situations.


Our school motto of "Empowering Learners for Life" is aimed at developing young thinkers who are hungry to learn. Our LEAP Centre is part of that journey.


Our new buildings include the LEAP Centre, but also include our new Performing Arts Centre in our gymnasium. This facility includes drama and music and stage areas for students.


Although our focus is always going to be to promote excellence in Literacy and Numeracy, these other facilities provide staff with many ways to reach those goals in a creative and engaging manner.

 

Please feel free to ring and arrange a school tour. Enrolments for next year are now being taken.
