Our Little Town

Our school community enjoys a strong sense of belonging and ownership over the direction and continuing success of our school. Known affectionately as 'Our Little Town', families, staff and students work together to protect the reputation for our unique capacity to provide a community hub within the Paddington/City area. Visitors frequently comment on the palpable sense of community and care that is demonstrated in the school. Respect for self, others and place is evident in our relationships with each other, ourselves and our school.

Many opportunities to be involved in the life of the school are presented throughout the year. A couple of the highlights are;

Whole school assemblies

Our Friday assembly is a highlight of the school week.  Our student leaders deliver the school assembly each week. Alongside the Principal's address and other announcements, each week we celebrate the achievements of our students through the presentation of certificates. Every staff member, student and parent is invited to join in the whole school song, a different song each week  sometimes incorporating a band composing of parents, staff and students. Each week the whole school assembly sings 'Little Town' our school pledge put to music by our beloved Brad.

Kitchen Gardens Program - working bees

The sustainability and success of our Peer Support Kitchen Gardens program would not be so were it not for the wonderful contributions from our Whole School Working Bees each term. Mulching, weeding, composting and watering are all ongoing tasks that require the efforts of the broader community. At the end of each working bee the families relax with a Gourmet BBQ and refreshments. It is a social highlight and fabulous opportunity for families to work and play together adding value to their community.

School disco and school concert

Each year the whole school community comes together in fun and celebration for the school disco (Winter) and the school concert (summer). Both are a highlight of the school calendar enabling the school to showcase the talents of the families, staff and students. Petrie Terrace loves a party!
