Prep

Welcome to Victoria Park State School

At Victoria Park State School we recognise the fact that Prep is the first year of school and value that it will provide the foundation for your child's education. As a result, we have created an outstanding and highly successful prep program including a pre prep program that begins in the Third term every year. We pride ourselves on our collaborative approach to education, ensuring all students are achieving at their full potential. Teachers work together, plan together and share ideas across all classes.

Our Prep students are involved in active learning experiences aimed at making education come alive. In prep your child will study English, Mathematics, History,  Geography and Science as outlined by the Australian Curriculum. They will also participate in Digital Technologies, Music and Physical Education instructed by specialist teachers. Term 4 Physical Education lessons the preps are lucky enough to swim in our very own pool which is located on the Goldsmith Street side of our school.

By the end of our Prep year, our students are expected to be readers and writers. We do this via explicit teaching and guided co-operative learning that encourages the development of both social and academic skills. Our Prep classrooms have full time teacher aides allowing both teachers and teacher aides the opportunity to work more closely with our Prep students. It ensures that we are providing the best supportive, caring environment for all our students.

At Victoria Park State School we provide an extensive Prep program designed to ensure your child feels safe and secure in starting their first year of school. We look forward to sharing your child's learning journey with you.
