Learn By Doing

Education is the first and foremost the priority of Atholl Heights Primary, and we pride ourselves on ensuring that learners receive great learning materials. The teachers’ prepared material is combined with world-renowned programs such as Letterland and Oxford Reading Tree.

We always look for opportunities to improve our teaching and learning experience. Our staff enthusiastically participate in ongoing professional development, keeping up to date with techniques and new resources.

Each of our classrooms is equipped with a digital projector and modern sound equipment to facilitate learning from more than just physical and written content, but audio and visual as well.

Our School’s Values & Vision

The primary ‘heart-throb’ of the school is providing a secure and positive environment in which our learners can be encouraged and challenged to achieve and develop both academically and personally. We believe that having a happy and motivated teaching staff, learner body, and an involved community sets a foundation for excellence.

A Word

From Our Principal:

“Atholl Heights is a community school, and we all take pride in our facilities and the engaging learning environment. My predecessors, Mrs. Diana Warwick and Mr Lloyd Wing, always emphasized the importance of striving towards being ‘The heartbeat of Westville’. This remains a core element in our school’s mission, and it is the energy behind everything that we as a team set out to do.”

– Mr Gavin Sweet

It is critical to equip students with the various skills needed to thrive in an increasingly digital society. To tackle this, we have put laptops in classrooms and made their use an integral part of their education.
