Welcome to Moolap Primary School! It is my privilege to lead the Moolap PS community and I welcome you and your family to the school.
Moolap PS has a long and proud history of serving students and families to the East of Geelong with a high-quality education in a safe, friendly and inclusive school environment. Our school has a distinct rural feel but is situated only 10 minutes from the Geelong CBD. We currently have an enrolment of 230 students in a mix of Year Prep, 1-2, 3-4, 4-5 and 5-6 classrooms. Our students and staff embody the school values of Respect, Responsibility, Safety and Integrity in their daily school activity. Our school aims for all students to experience success and take an active role in their learning.
Our staff are dedicated, professional and take pride in their work. They welcome parent involvement, communication and partnership in providing support to student learning and wellbeing. Our curriculum places strong emphasis on the foundations of literacy and numeracy, though fosters inquiry, problem solving and a connection with the local environment. All students in Years 3-6 take part in a 1:1 BYOD iPad program, which works to connect and engage students further in their learning. Further information about our programs can be found on this webpage.
At MPS our students take part in several specialist subjects throughout the school week: Music/ Drama, Visual Arts, Health and PE, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) and Indigenous Language. There are a range of extra-curricular activities during break times for students to enjoy, such as Coding Club, iPad Club, Eco Club, Art and Music Clubs- something for everyone! Moolap PS places strong emphasis on student voice in every classroom. It has a Student Representative Council (SRC) who are actively engaged in school decision making and School and House Leaders who are involved in running assemblies and conducting events for students to enjoy.
The Moolap Community group (MCG) is an active group of parents who are invested in supporting students and the school with a range of fundraising events and activities. New members are always welcome and there are lots of ways to get involved, including helping out in the canteen and our breakfast club.
I am more than happy to conduct a tour of the school for prospective parents so you can gain a real feel for our facilities, programs and engaging school environment.
