Our Students are Our Future
In primary schools today, the scientists, environmentalists, artists, athletes and politicians of tomorrow are busy learning.
Today’s primary school age children will make our world a better place; they will make decisions and care for us. We have great confidence in the students at our school and we believe great schools impact positively on the future.
Because of this, the Macclesfield Primary School community works together to enable every young person to develop to their fullest potential, with a wide range of positive, innovative learning opportunities and experiences. We want students to access quality resources and programmes.
Macclesfield Primary School is committed to students achieving their highest personal levels with monitored progress throughout the years.
The Australian Curriculum provides an overview of expected achievement across the required eight areas of study.
Students are able to access individual instrumental music lessons (guitar, drums, keyboard) and our school participates annually in the Adelaide Festival of Music.
The school runs a Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden programme, with a purpose built kitchen and garden.
We have a centrally located computer suite. Each class also has a bank of computers and access to tablets. We have a 3D printer.
Our students also have access to a very large bushland area, which we use as an outdoor learning space.
Macclesfield Primary School values respect, responsibility, caring, safety and success. We are committed to improving our students' learning outcomes in literacy, numeracy and science and we have a strong focus on community and the environment. The student voice is valued at Macclesfield.
We are an old school, which respects its history and embraces the future.
We invite you to come in to meet us all.
