Welcome to Seaview Downs Primary School
Seaview Downs Primary School is a happy and proud school of 230 students from Reception to Year 7, with a reputation for motivated students, committed staff and highly interested parents/carers. Its motto Together Inquire Inspire reflects the close community feel of the school where students are well supported and there is an educational emphasis on Inquiry Based Learning which promotes problem solving, deeper thinking and genuine engagement in learning.
Maximum effort is put into offering rich learning programs which support, challenge and extend all learners to achieve to the best of their abilities. The school priorities are Literacy and Numeracy, with targeted programs that support students at risk and that challenge those with high skills levels; also Student Wellbeing with a clear focus on healthy eating, increased physical activity, anti-harassment and the development of our core values: Trust, Confidence, Responsibility, Equality and Self-worth.
Whole class, choral and instrumental music are strong features, while Japanese is the specialist language. Senior Student programs include Tournament of Minds, Festival of Music, Pedal Prix and SAPSASA Sports.
We have a Christian Pastoral Support Worker for 12 hours / week.
Over the past five years, government funding has enabled the building of a school gym, the installation of interactive whiteboards in all classrooms, the creation of outdoor covered areas as well as recarpeting throughout and some painting.
Governing Council is focused, positive and actively contributes to the achievement of many initiatives. The Canteen exemplifies Best Practice and the Out of School Hours Care program is vital and well supported.
Established in 1969, the school continues to provide a positive environment where everyone works well together in support of each other.
