Connecting Our Community

Welcome to Berry Springs Primary School

At Berry Springs Primary School we strive to provide a stimulating, safe and caring learning environment. Within the school community we value the contributions of all students, their families and staff. We believe that children learn best when the school, home and community work in partnership.

Relationships Focused

Engaging Our Community

 

We seek to engage our wider community in programs and experiences that connect our students to our local environment and wider region.

We have established partnerships with a variety of organisations, forming a network of connections integral to our school. We have a strong focus on sustainability through the Growing Green Kids NT initiative, including designing and implementing various environmental and sustainability projects.

Forging strong relationships with students, their families, the local community and a variety of government and non-government organisations is a key priority for us, ensuring our students feel connected and empowered to become lifelong learners.

Building harmonious relationships between our families and school is fundamental to our success. We encourage parents to be active participants in our school community through a variety of formal and informal structures.

Our successful environment and sustainability program Growing Green Kids NT was given the opportunity to be showcased in a pilot ABCMe TV program titled ‘Project Planet’ which featured 3 schools from across Australia. A group of took part in filming this 8 part series which went to air in August and September 2018 and focused on the impact students can have on making change to help our environment for future generations.

Staff and students continued to partner with the Territory Wildlife Park as part of educational programs that have explicit links across all key learning areas of the Australian Curriculum and integrates real life learning opportunities for all students.
