A Guide to Stanmore Public School
Welcome to Stanmore Public School. At Stanmore, the staff is committed to ensuring your child’s time here is successful and happy. This information booklet is provided to all new parents to help you and your child settle smoothly into our school. We hope you find it useful.
Please let us know if there is any other information that new parents may need and which is not included so we can include it in our next edition.
If you require further information at any time or wish to discuss any matters to do with your child’s schooling, please contact your child’s class teacher, the school office, or myself.
Learning for Life
To discover the joy of learning is to set a pattern that will remain for life.
Stanmore Public School’s approach to primary education is to educate the whole child: to recognise and nurture the ability of each child in all areas of potential ‐ linguistic, mathematical, musical, artistic, physical, and social ‐ so each one leaves primary school as confident and competent learners.
