Meet the Principals

POWIIS is different.

POWIIS is nothing more than the sum of every young person who comes here – the school is its pupils, and each and every one is vital to its success, and its reputation.

We work hard at caring for, and nurturing, every individual with a pastoral care system second to none.

Our academic results are outstanding, but we know success in life is not guaranteed by qualifications alone. We have a vibrant cultural diversity, but we study and communicate in English. Our students work hard at their language development, at the same time developing personal qualities, oratory and performance skills, and social sophistication.

A POWIIS student will leave here ready to face the world with confidence.

Welcome to POWIIS Primary School.

Schools are social organisms and as such flourish when connections between students, teachers and parents are strong. This is the priority of POWIIS Primary when positive relationships are fostered and developed across the community. We are committed to ensuring this is a priority at POWIIS Primary. Our students are at the heart of all we do and our excellent teaching staff will ensure that every child is safe, nurtured, known and understood.

Our rich, broad curriculum, with its commitment to Mandarin, sport, technology and the performing and creative arts will help develop articulate, confident, well-rounded children prepared for the ever-changing world they live in. We want our students to experience the excitement of discovering that they are capable of achieving more than they thought possible; we will encourage them to embrace new opportunities and help them to develop resilience and perseverance along the way. Our extra-curricular programme features a range of academic and sporting opportunities as well as a flourishing programme of creative and expressive arts, including drama, orchestra and choir.

While purpose built facilities and an exciting, relevant curriculum are important, the single most influential aspect of your child’s educational experience will be their teacher. I trust through the care, encouragement and support our teachers give your child, and the enjoyment they are having, I will see them running into school with a smile on their faces at school.

We look forward to meeting you!
