Students are provided with diverse opportunities in a multi-cultural environment where life-long learning is fostered.

Stonnington Primary School will provide a challenging 21st Century learning environment that:

• Effectively prepares students to be successful and dynamic learners

At Stonnington Primary School we believe in consultive decision-making processes that include the involvement of all sectors of the school community. All parents are encouraged to be an integral part of the learning process and involvement in all aspects of the school’s operation is valued. Stonnington provides a parent information and professional development program that reflects our belief that a child’s success is directly related to effective partnerships between students, staff and parents.

Stonnington Primary School continues to develop strong links with pre-schools, local secondary schools, support agencies and the local community through:

• Pre-school/Prep children being supported through our buddy system

• Our Stonnington and Glen Eira School Network enables us to work closely with local and primary secondary schools in Prep-9 curriculum. This has culminated in some excellent teacher collaboration, units of work, sharing of rich assessment tasks and valuable transition activities (K-Prep & Yrs 6-7)

• Sharing of resources and conducting valuable programs with outside agencies

• Partnerships with Ardoch Youth Foundation, Bendigo Community Bank Windsor, Stonnington City Council and various community support services
