Principal's Welcome


Taylors Lakes Primary School is a thriving school which has strong links to the local community. We have a school population of 700 students. We have 32 classes in 2023 comprising of all straight year level classes. At this stage, our class sizes vary from 21 students in the Prep area of our school to 26 students in the upper area of the school.

 

Our school has a strong focus towards literacy and numeracy however we also strive to develop the whole child and we have innovative STEAM, Coding, Music, Visual Arts and Physical Education programs which aim to challenge and stimulate. Our students are also encouraged to compete and represent our school in a wide variety of sports.

 

Our school is extremely well resourced in ICT and all classrooms possess an Interactive Whiteboard. Each classroom has at least two computers and access to a trolley with 16 - 28 net books connected to it. In semester two 2011, our school’s new ICT lab was ready to use which has allowed our students to receive extra opportunities to access computers and technology with particular emphasis on coding and using ICT to create art, music and games.

 

Our school has undergone a major redevelopment of our facilities which has provided our school with 6 new classrooms, a new ICT lab, a large extension to our school library, a large extension to our administration block and some additional meeting rooms. The building work was completed at the end of semester one 2011 and has exposed our students to even greater facilities to assist their learning. Additionally, we have a 'CAT Space' where STEAM lessons are conducted, giving students the opportunity to develop modern technological and thinking skills. More recently, our old school hall has been converted to four new classrooms and our new school hall is currently being constructed and is due to be finished in semester two, 2024.

 

At Taylors Lakes Primary School we strive to ensure that every student is feeling safe and engaged in their learning. We recognise that a student who does not feel connected to their school is unlikely to achieve all that they can.
