Message from the Principal

Dear Prospective Parents/Carers,

Thank you for considering Stawell Primary School – 502 as your child’s educational provider.  Deciding upon a school for your child’s educational journey over the next 7 years, is certainly an important one.

Our school has a long and proud history in Stawell, dating back to the goldrush era.  Many generations of families have traditionally attended ‘502’ and will continue to do so into the future.  Being a former student myself, I am proud to have returned to my primary school as the Principal.  I am passionate about ‘502’ and the important role it plays in preparing students for their future and potentially, the future of our Stawell community.

At Stawell Primary School we strongly value and encourage the significant partnership between home and school in the learning process.  We understand how important this relationship is in enabling your child to achieve both learning growth and to feel happy and confident within themselves.

If you haven’t already done so, I encourage you to book a school tour, where you can see firsthand our engaging classrooms and dedicated staff.  You will gain a feel for the happy, welcoming and supportive culture of 502.

Our school’s mantra of 502 P.R.I D.E. sets the expectations for all our school community members.  We are proud of ourselves, our work, our school and our community of Stawell.  Our Values of: Participation, Respect, Integrity, Determination and Excellence are at the core of our learning, our behaviour and our mindset.

We always strive ‘to be the best we can be.

Once again, thank you for considering our school for your child’s future education.  Please do not hesitate to contact me on 5358 1255 for an appointment if you have any questions about our wonderful school and to discover how you and your family can become part of the 502 tradition.

Yours sincerely,

Russell Marland,
