Wandana Preschool-7 School focuses on learning. Students, teachers and families
study Neuroscience (the study of the brain) to ensure we are the best learners we
can be. Our whole community are committed to supporting and planning for a safe
clean environment for learning and play.
Staff are strongly supported by Governing Council in the educational and social
development of each child as we seek to challenge those who are more able and
to support and nurture those who need additional assistance.
The School values of : Caring, Honesty, Learning, Pride and Respect are taught,
encouraged, and supported .Our whole community celebrates our many cultures,
traditions and individuality. We acknowledge families know their children the best
and we meet, work and celebrate together with families.
Our facilities are outstanding. Our gymnasium, large oval, playgrounds and tiger turf
provide for a fun, active time for all. We have a specialist Health and Physical
Education Teacher and a Performing Arts Teacher. Students learn through
experience. All students have access to IPads, Lap tops or a desktop iMac
computers. We have wireless facilities which enable students to pick up their device
and take it to their place of learning.
Our Preschool students enjoy a rich learning environment. We have an interactive
whiteboard for all of our students to enjoy. Recently we have been assessed against
the National Quality Standards and achieved the highest rating “Exceeding
National Quality Standards”. We are most proud of the learning programs that
celebrate our many cultures and the relationships we have developed with our
families. We have now been invited to apply for Excellence!!!!!
After School Activities:
Students attend after school sport one night a week. We have an Aboriginal
homework centre and families support our football clinics on Saturday mornings and
training on Thursday afternoons.
Breakfast club is run by Aunty Wendy every morning. Students enjoy sitting and
talking with their friends while eating a healthy breakfast.
Whole school assemblies are held every Thursday at 2:30 pm in our gymnasium. We
invite all community members to join in with singing, performances and sharing of
our learning. It is also a time to hear about what is happening in the whole school
At the end of assembly students are given awards for learning goals they have
achieved throughout the week.
We provide opportunities for students to participate in activities outside of the school
and foster a sense of citizenship. We have been successful in winning many awards

All students have the power to be the best learners they can be. They do this in
many different ways. Students collaboratively write out learning goals with their
teachers. Students also participate on committee’s and working parties. Students

produce, attend to the chickens and ensure our garden is well looked after.
