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.
Athol Road was recently recognised for its support and commitment to the SunSmart initiative.
Athol Road has been a supporter of the policies of SunSmart now for over 25 years.
Ministerial Order 870:
Managing the Risk of Child Abuse
Athol Road Primary School is committed to zero tolerance of child abuse; including physical violence, sexual offences, serious emotional or psychological abuse and serious neglect. It is our moral and legal responsibility to create a nurturing school environment where children and young people are respected, their voices are heard and they are safe and feel safe. All children, regardless of their gender, race, religious beliefs, age disability, sexual orientation, or family or social background have equal rights to protection from abuse.
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. 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.
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.
