Collier Primary School has a distinctive staff of youthful enthusiasm and aged experience. We have specialist teachers in the areas of Music, Languages Than English (Indonesian), Physical Education and The Arts and Science. The school has a number of programs in place to secure the positive reinforcement of good behaviour in both the playground and the classroom. The ‘Collier Way’ document was formulated to foster the particular values reflected within the community. We run the BUZ across the school, supported by our Chaplaincy program. These courses are all tailored towards building resiliency and social positiveness. In relation to the provision of equal opportunity and equity in access to education for all students, “Collier Primary School recognizes and endorses the Education Department Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP).”
The school also operates under an ‘Open Door Policy’ inviting parents and care givers the opportunity to make arrangements to speak to the classroom staff or administration in relation to your child.
