School Council President's Welcome

My name is Angela MacRae and I am pleased and proud to have been elected as School Council President this year.  I have a child at the school and have been on School Council for eight years.

The School Council is one important plank of the strong relationship that BNPS fosters between parents, students and staff.  In its role, School Council aims to help improve student learning outcomes, lead school community conversations about key issues and challenges in education, and promote meaningful parent and community participation at the school.

At BNPS there is genuine parent engagement and involvement in your child’s learning journey.  It is this, and so much more that makes our school such an attractive place of learning.  We have: 

  • A leadership team that is second to none, and staff that work collaboratively so that the benefits of professional learning and mentoring are maximised
  • A student-centred focus to learning, so that your child is given the best opportunity to progress and shine
  • A high number of specialist teachers, giving children access to a wide range of learning opportunities
  • A host of extra-curricular activities, including Music, Chess Club and Aeroskools and an enriching Out of School Hours program
  • Participation in the Resilience Project and a buddy program that fosters strong relationships among students
  • A host of community activities, including our annual welcome celebration, our bi-annual fair and various parent run stalls. 

 It is these things that stand out most when parents talk to me about what they love about our school.  For those families already enrolled, I hope this website helps you access information that helps you get the most out of your time at the school. For families of prospective parents, I hope it is a gateway for you to find out about all the wonderful things we have to offer – and that you choose to join us.
