Principal's Welcome

Welcome to the Five Dock Public School community. When you enrol your child or children into a preschool or school at any time, you are moving into a new phase of family life and making connections in your community. I am sure you will enjoy your time as a member of a dynamic and inclusive learning community here at Five Dock Public School. I strongly believe that my role as principal is to ensure the very best outcomes for all our children and that a happy and safe school is integral to creating the type of society we want now and in the future. Our school is a place where parents/carers and students have the opportunity to connect with others and in many instances, these connections will last for many years. From preschool to year 6 children develop a sense of belonging to the broader world and here at Five Dock we pride ourselves in ensuring a sense of belonging and connectedness in all our children.

The purpose of this information book is to provide you with the opportunity to become familiar with the procedures and systems that we have to ensure the smooth running of the school. In addition to this I hope you get a feeling for the quality of the school’s programs, the strength of the community and the vibrancy of our students, teachers and parent body.

I look forward to working with you and the teachers, learning support officers and administration team to ensure your child/ren have a wonderful primary school experience that prepares them for success throughout their life.


Warm regards
