Nichols Point Primary: Helping kids dream, achieve and succeed!

The Point is absolutely unique and we pride ourselves on being unique – a point of difference. We do this by always referring to our motto (Helping kids dream, achieve and succeed) and by ensuring every decision made is on the assumption “Kids First.”

  • I love to see happy kids wanting to come to school (high fiving us all) and being an active part of a vibrant school community.
  • I love to see kids engaging with the most up to date technology options and take cyber safety seriously.
  • I love to see kids, parents and staff having online conversations about learning progress and up to date current goals.
  • I love to see kids interacting in our inclusive playground.
  • I love to see peer tutoring and our two year buddy program – Kids teaching kids.
  • I love to see kids up in the vegie patch and harvesting produce to give away to the needy.
  • I love to see kids singing, dancing, playing guitar and drums and performing at every opportunity.
  • I love to see kids achieving in their chosen sports and just participating because they can.
  • I love to see kids experimenting with their passions and working towards making their dreams come true.
  • I love to see kids vigorously learning through experimenting, making mistakes and practicing.
  • I love to see our parents in the mornings helping with reading and maths and then finishing off with a coffee and a chat over near our little outside café.
  • I love to see our parents being engaged and having a laugh at Parents Association, coming up with new ideas, helping to fund them and providing kids with wonderful opportunities.
  • I love to think that positive relationships are very important to us and integral in our daily work.
  • I love to see kids and staff purchasing healthy, fresh food from our canteen.
  • I love to see kids making the library their own and enjoying all that it has to offer.
  • I love knowing that kids can play sport indoors if needed in our fantastic full sized gym and keep active in our fitness gym.
  • I love it that our kids have a well maintained school environment that is just approaching ten years old.
  • I love that the kids are grouped in Maths and English in learning groups that are just right for them.
  • I love that the kids have the chance to build relationships with a lot of adults and students as they move every hour according to the timetable.
  • I love that we engage in whole school programs for English and Maths learning – Daily 5 and Literacy Café, Soundwaves, Big Write and VCOP, nelson maths, sumdog, literacy planet, reading eggs, to name a few.
  • I love that our kids are working towards being resilient kids through a targeted whole school approach.
  • I hope you enjoy your little journey into our school through our website and I suggest you like our official facebook page.  If it doesn’t provide you with information that meets your needs please make contact as we are very proud of our school and are more than happy to share it with you.
