Macgregor Primary School
Message from the Principal
Welcome to Macgregor Primary School.
Macgregor Primary School is designed to cater for students from preschool to year six and we encourage and welcome our families to engage with us and their child’s learning. The school has created strong and inclusive partnerships with parents and the wider community and much of our success is due to these embedded connections.
We are all very proud of our wonderful school and the exceptional learning and teaching that takes place here on a daily basis. Our dedicated and professional team work collaboratively together to ensure that our students are at the centre of all that we do, and that every child is a successful learner.
Macgregor is proudly a Professional Learning Community with a focus on learning. The teachers work in teams to answer the four crucial questions which drive the work of the Professional Leaning Community:
What do we want each student to know, understand and be able to do?
How will we know when each student has learned it?
How will we respond when a student has difficulty in learning?
How do we enrich and extend the learning when the student already knows it?
The Macgregor school community has developed a set of core values known to everyone as the BRICK principles. These are: Belonging, Respect, Individuality, Cooperation and Kindness.
These values provide a common language for the entire community and underpin our responsibility to work together to achieve positive learning outcomes in a safe and supportive environment.
Please do not hesitate to make contact with the school if you would like to make an appointment to have a school tour or discuss your child.
