Athol Road Primary School
An Innovative Personalised Learning K-6 School:
Our vision is to create a vibrant learning community where lives are transformed and individuals inspired to achieve beyond what they ever believed possible.
Welcome to our responsive, mobile-device friendly school website.
Athol Road Primary School is part of a diverse, multi-cultural community where over 85% of our students speak a language other than English at home. Over the past few years the school has worked diligently to transform Athol Road Primary School into a professional learning community – where improving student learning is at the heart of every decision made.
National Reconciliation Week – May 27th-June 3rd
‘Reconciliation’ is about Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Australians talking, walking, and working together to overcome the division and inequality between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Australians. It is about addressing and acknowledging our true history.
It is not one act but a journey that requires a commitment from non-Indigenous Australians to take ownership and responsibility for their own learning and role in the process of reconciliation..

The school is pleased to inform you that we are now a FlexiBuzz [formerly tiqbiz] school.
FlexiBuzz is a 21st Century school communication app. It enables Athol Road Primary School to communicate with parents and carers – straight to your smartphone. We are able to send news, events, photos and newsletters so that you can be even more connected with your children’s learning at Athol Road. It is also possible to replace paper permission forms with electronically signed forms. FlexiBuzz will remind you about important calendar dates 24 hours before, and everything we post can be translated into one of 81 languages – all within the app. We can now send communications to specific year levels, so you will receive information specific to your child’s year as well as general news, events and updates that will go to everyone. To be able to receive these instant communications – you must download the FlexiBuzz app.
The school kindly asks that you download FlexiBuzz to your device – register a free account then find and tick the school. When you are ticking the school boxes – please make sure you tick on “Whole School” and the specific year levels that apply to your family. You’ll receive all the information with a push notification – much like a text message directly to your device.
