Welcome to


I am proud to be the third Principal of Shelly Park School. Here, at SPS, we work co-operatively to provide opportunities for learners to build their sense of identity, to become resilient, self-reliant, critical and creative thinkers, to be team players, to learn to use initiative and engage in ongoing learning throughout their lives.

Our three values Respect, Responsibility and Determination are ingrained in everything we do. Students are not required to be the best but they are expected to give their best. We provide students with a range of new experiences and there is an expectation for students to give these new experiences their best effort.

Learning should be fun. When students are engaged and in an environment that fosters new learning experiences, great things will happen. We have a committed staff that recognises students learn in different ways, they also understand at different speeds and all students are capable of more than they think. It’s our job to uncover every child’s personal best.

Welcome to Shelly Park School where we work together to succeed.

Ed Roper – Principal
