Newlands Primary School

Newlands Primary School is situated in West Preston opposite the new Coburg Hill development.  Our school is proud of the role we play in our community and we take pride in our welcoming atmosphere. At Newlands, students, teachers and parents all actively participate in the learning partnerships.

School Values Forums

We are currently undertaking the process of reviewing our school values to ensure that they truly reflect the ethos of our school. Students, community members and staff will all be involved in this process.

  • A short list of values have now been identified.
  • A review of short list by all stakeholders will be undertaken during term 3.
  • Parent reviews will be held on the following dates:
  • Tuesday 28th August at 2:30 p.m.
  • Wednesday 29th August at 5:00 p.m.
  • All school community members will be surveyed before a final decision is made regarding our list of values.
  • In Term 4 there will be a community presentation of new school values and their implementation
