Welcome to the Solway Primary School website. Solway is committed to the development of globally aware, civically minded life-long learners. To achieve this, we recognise the importance of educating the ‘whole child’. This involves not only maintaining our high expectations of student achievement in Literacy and Numeracy, but encouraging our students to create and innovate through a rigorous and rich curriculum, based on a developmental approach. Achieved through the provision of quality specialist programs in The Arts, Science, Physical Education and Sport, Reading Recovery and Japanese Language, these programs are highly valued and supported by the school community. The specialist programs are further enhanced by a range of engaging and enriching whole school programs and extra-curricular activities both within and beyond the classroom. A strong emphasis is given to educating our students to live healthy, balanced lifestyles through the promotion of healthy eating, exercise, leisure pursuits and active citizenship.
We hope you enjoy reading about our school community and develop an understanding of Solway as a great place for learning and teaching.
As a result of our recent Capital Works program the school boasts modern flexible classroom spaces and outstanding specialist and administrative facilities for students and staff. We are very proud of our renovated and new spaces – Reception area, Conference Centre, Staff Lounge, classrooms, teacher offices, Year 5/6 Learning hub, Science Centre, Performing Arts Centre and Uniform Shop – spaces the whole school community can use and enjoy. In addition, alterations at the front of the school in Winton Road provide a welcoming entrance for families and visitors.
