WELCOME TO ELSTHORPE SCHOOL
Elsthorpe is a small, rural school situated in an incredibly beautiful bush setting. We have a proud history of over 120 years and provide numerous unique learning opportunities for all our children from new entrants to Year 8.
We nurture the development of all our learners by building a partnership with our families to get to know the whole child, and how they learn best.
We are a PB4L school who promote a positive attitude to learning and life through our values of BRAVERY, RESPECT, TOGETHERNESS and RESPONSIBILTY;
Like the environment grows strong timber,
we set down strong foundations for growth into the future.
Like the Kowhai, we continue to grow academically, socially, culturally and through sport.
Like the Kereru we confidently seek out the branch that grows the best fruit.
WE ARE ELSTHORPE AND WE AE THE FUTURE
Our dedicated staff work closely together to develop targeted learning experiences for our students and promote collaborative learning activities that are meaningful and relevant.
We are lucky to have an incredibly supportive community who are actively involved in all aspects of school life. We have a family orientated environment where Senior children care and support the younger students to develop bravery and responsibility.
The school newsletter is emailed out and comes home every Monday and is well utilised by the community to keep people informed of activities etc.
Parents and the community are welcome to include notices and it would appreciated if we could have these by 10am Monday please. Please ensure that this is read as it is our way of keeping you in touch with what is happening at school.
As a school we also communicate through our Facebook page and the Skool Loop app.
