  • A strong student centred welfare program based on the "Positive Behaviour for Learning" model. We also stress the learning of cyber safety for our students.

Here at Excelsior Public School we have 3 strong focus areas:

  1. High Ideals
  2. High Expectations
  3. High Achievement

and we believe that all children can achieve these at their expected level.   

Our staff are up to date with current pedagogy and consistently undertake Teacher Professional Learning in order to maintain accreditation. Here at Excelsior Public School we are very proud of our student outcomes, our 21st century approach to teaching and learning and our nurturing and safe learning environment.

I feel very fortunate to be the Principal of Excelsior Public School.
