"I attended Spencer Park Primary School from 2003 until 2011, and will always look back at my years there with fond memories. Throughout my time at the school my academic and personal growth were always supported by the incredible staff, and I formed strong bonds with my classmates that I still maintain to this day. I'm currently at the Australian National University in Canberra, where I am studying a Bachelor of Engineering, Majoring in Mechatronics and Computer Science. Spencer Park makes up a large part of who I am today and I'm forever grateful for growing up in such a supportive environment."
"Through our 4 children we have been associated with SPPS for 15 years. It has been nothing but a good experience for our family. We have felt supported and our needs met consistently."
"I spent nine years at Spencer Park and it was nothing but an enjoyable experience for myself and my family. The education and support I received set me up for successful results in both primary and high school. I am now going on to study Journalism at the University of Western Australia."
"My time at Spencer Park was one of the most monumental and life changing things that happened to me. I have autism and at Spencer Park I always felt supported and valued by my teachers, EAs and friends. I worked hard and became Student Councillor in Year 6. I also helped my team during the Spelling Championships and we won! A little bit of advice I learnt at Spencer Park is that there are NO limits! Follow your dreams!"
"My four children attended SPPS from Kindy to Year 6 with the fourth graduating in 2017. My eldest began kindy in 2003 so I had children attending for 15 years. During my involvement with the school I have found the teachers to be, approachable, caring and dedicated to providing excellent learning opportunities for the students and strived to meet the needs of all. As well as providing an engaging and appropriate educational programme, there were numerous opportunities for students to be involved in other varied activities such as music, sport and art performances and exhibitions. I also found that the school consistently showed strong administration and leadership and welcomed input from parents and the community."
"We transferred our two daughters from another local school as our youngest needed to attend the wonderful Spencer Park Education Support Centre. Emily has thrived since we have moved and we couldn’t be prouder of her improvement and the level of care, support and teaching method shown by the Centre towards Emily and our family. We transferred our eldest to Spencer Park Primary School (as they share a campus with the Education Support Centre) and we have been taken aback with the level of support and care provided and the welcoming nature of the teachers and students. Sophie has improved so much since we moved her to Spencer Park and we highly recommend the school to other families."
Four girls, four personalities and four very different packages of needs, all of which have been nurtured by SPPS. Over the past 8 years we’ve watched our daughters (2 with special needs) grow in confidence and character. Our family enjoys the vibrant learning environments, opportunities for parent involvement and the positive wrap around support from all levels of staff. Our daughter Rebecca has autism, the incredible support and respect she received from staff and her peers led to her selection as a Student Councillor in Year 6. She graduated completely prepared for mainstream high school, a huge collaborative achievement. Outside of the classroom our girls participate in community events, ANZAC parades, choir performances, art exhibitions, academic challenges and sporting endeavours. SPPS has a fantastic sense of community that we are excited to be a part of!
