Principal's Message

I have the honour of welcoming you to Mossfiel Primary School, where we welcome every child and their family into our learning community.

We strive to develop and foster a relationship between teachers, students, parents and our local community. We provide a high quality education in all areas of literacy and mathematics as well as information technology, physical education, music and art. The development of the leadership skills of both staff and students is a high priority within the school. Staff professional learning ensures that we continually improve the quality of learning and teaching at Mossfiel Primary School.

The school currently has an enrolment of around 400 students. Students are organised in Foundation, Year 1 / 2, Year 3 / 4 and Year 5 / 6 classrooms. Each area of the school is overseen by a team leader and teachers work in small teams to plan and implement curriculum.  Our classrooms and teaching spaces are modern, large and extremely well equipped and resourced. We are pleased to be using our new BER (Senior) building which house the Year 5 / 6 classrooms and an extensive learning and meeting spaces. This new building has become a very popular addition to our school community. Our students have a vast area in which to play, with many playgrounds, open area, passive sitting areas and shaded spaces for students to enjoy.

Innovative approaches to teaching and learning

Mossfiel Primary School has access to innovative approaches to teaching and learning. The school purchased trolleys of iPads for our Foundation and Year 1/2s to use. Students are welcomed to bring their own iPad to school and access the school servers as part of their daily learning environment. Our classrooms also have access to a range of ICT equipment to enhance learning, including interactive whiteboards, notebook and desktop computers.  A fully equipped computer lab is also a feature of our ICT program across the whole school.

We encourage all parents and guardians to take an active role in the education of their child. Our staff welcome parent involvement in the classroom and on a range of school activities, including excursions. Parents and guardians can assist in their child’s learning and success at school by reinforcing the following: that students are at school every day, on time, in full school uniform and have all of the equipment required for a successful school day (including a healthy lunch!). If at any time you require assistance, or would like to chat about your child’s progress at school, please make initial contact with your child’s teacher, who will then refer you to other support staff if necessary.

I would like to invite all who would like to visit our school the School Office to arrange a time for a personal tour. I would appreciate the opportunity to show you our wonderful school.

Thank you for visiting our website and welcome to our school.
