In 1880, Concord Public School began as a small provisional school. Throughout our history, we have captured the true essence "community" as explained further by our principal.
A Word from the Principal
As you walk through our school for the very first time, you will notice a strong sense of community. We believe that we really capture the true essence of the word "community"– we have a canteen and a uniform shop run by parents and our tireless Parents and Citizens' Association are constantly working for the good of the school.
Our staff are committed to the values of public education and the diversity that it represents, catering to the unique needs of all children. We strongly believe in the concept of early intervention and the benefits of having smaller classes in the junior years. This allows the teacher to work closely with each child, nurturing their every need and embedding a love of learning. Our teachers are driven, motivated and enthusiastic.
Specialist Programs including: MultiLit; English as an Additional Language/Dialect (EAL/D); Learning Support Program; Italian and Enrichment Program ensure that the individual needs of all students are catered for.
We are enormously proud of our performing arts groups, including, the choir and the dance troupe. As you will see in the photo gallery, the groups feature regularly in school events such as Open Day, Grandparents Day, Kindergarten Orientation and Presentation Day. Students also have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument of their choice through private tutors, arranged through the school.
In 2019, we opened our very first Inclusive Classes, for students with autism. Today we have three classes. Our newly established Harmony Garden, funded by the school's P&C, truly captures the strong principles of diversity, acceptance and inclusion where all children can play.
I am very proud of our green, lush grounds that our children play in. It represents the beautiful parklands that the whole Concord district is surrounded by and it is something that we treasure and will aim to preserve for a long time to come.
