The strength of our school lies in the close partnership between students, staff, parents, and the wider community. Highlights of this close partnership are the annual Miles Franklin Music Festival and the Spring Fete. Students in our school are offered a balanced learning program that supports and nurtures the development of children’s academic, personal and social well-being. Our pastoral care promotes student understanding of the need for individuals to care for, support, and value each other within a safe environment.
Miles Franklin is a school of choice with the majority of our students residing outside our Priority Placement Area. Parents value our emphasis on academic rigour, the range of programs offered and the mutual support we give each other in building and sustaining the school community.
We have identified five key areas as our focus in 2013:
Along with enrichment and support programs to support student learning opportunities Miles Franklin offers a number of programs that enhance the day to day teaching programs of the school. These include private music tuition; dance, science and chess clubs at lunchtime; a before and after school care program, and a school holiday program. We expect our children to be polite, on time, in uniform and with a desire for their curiosity to be fulfilled and further extended. Our website will provide you with vital information about the school, its programs and general information. Please contact the school for any other information you require.
I look forward to welcoming you and your child/children to our wonderful school and to working with you to provide quality learning programs.
