Principal’s message

Welcome to West Lynde Public School.  At West Lynde we value Respect, Responsibility and Right Choices.  We call them our 3 Rs.  Our vision is to create an environment where everyone has the opportunity to explore their diverse giftings and passions, pushing themselves beyond what they thought they could achieve. We are committed to prioritizing well-being for every member of our community.

We are grateful to the staff who have taken on many extra-curricular activities for the benefit of our students.  These activities require a commitment over and above the many classroom and lesson preparation hours that our staff already spend keeping on top of their game as educators.  Our students and parents appreciate the opportunities that these activities present for showcasing and expanding the amazing repertoire of skills and talents our students bring to the table. They foster positive attitudes that spill over into the classroom and impact the academic achievement of our students.

We view diversity as our strength here at West Lynde. We welcome new members to our school community with open arms and celebrate the gifts they bring to us.  Students are encouraged to work hard to achieve their highest academic potential as the staff engage in lifelong learning to sharpen our teaching practice.  We believe this is the best way to secure a preferred future for our students.
