Welcome to Shelly Park School

On behalf of the Staff, Board of Trustees and the community of Shelly Park Primary School I welcome you and your family to our School Community website. We hope your visit will be worthwhile, rewarding and enjoyable.

Shelly Park is a decile 10 State primary co-educational contributing school widely known for its friendly, family atmosphere. We are fortunate to have a skilled, enthusiastic staff committed to providing the best for every child. Parents are encouraged to work closely with staff to enhance children’s learning.

Parents of our school are welcome to involve themselves in our activities. Helpers work in the classroom with children, in the library, or with our sports programme. Helpers may choose to come on a regular timetabled basis, or just when it suits, by arrangement. The Outdoor Education Camps and organised educational, sports and cultural events are made possible with the committed co-operation and assistance of parent helpers.

Whilst special functions such as sports days, assemblies and concerts are organised for sharing, parents have the opportunity to contact the school everyday and should feel at ease in communicating joys, queries, and concerns. We believe that close contact and cooperation between home and school is vital for effective growth and welcome parental contact and assistance with class work, sporting and cultural activities. The Staff work to make the school effective in its dealings exercising our professional judgement to be helpful, diplomatic and tactful within all relationships.
