Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Seaford Park Primary School


Patrick Halpin

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Seaford Park Primary School. 


Our mission is to provide a contemporary learning environment, involving all members of the school community collaborating and learning together, to achieve quality learning outcomes for all students within a culture of high expectations.


At Seaford Park Primary School, our learners are at the centre of our actions and decisions.  We work as a professional learning community to ensure the focus within our classrooms is squarely on our students and how they learn. This involves weekly formalized discussions beginning with the analysis of data, research and sharing of best practice to ensure that every teacher is engaging in continuous professional learning and that every student is taught at their own point of need. 


We offer a range of specialist subjects, including Auslan, Physical Education, Visual Arts and Performing Arts. These subjects, as well as strategically designed teaching and learning programs, allow for the diversity in our students’ learning styles and interests.  Our team is committed to balancing challenge with support for all of our learners. We have well developed partnerships with several local community based organisations including Ardoch, Belvedere Community Centre and RSL. The Student Support Services provide support for the school in our disability & inclusion approaches. In 2024 we will host placement Occupational Therapists from Monash University.


We value the social nature of learning and provide opportunities for students to collaborate in their learning throughout their day. We empower students in every classroom to influence their own learning by developing programs that promote autonomy. Senior students are appointed to leadership positions to contribute to school life. This is further enhanced through the involvement of parents and families as vital partners in the education process. In addition to volunteering in classrooms and on excursions, parents can get involved by joining our School Council and subcommittees. 


In 2024, the staff are collaborating on several focus areas.

  • In Mathematics, our attention is on developing the students' fluency in number and algebra. It is our belief that when students have a deep and flexible understanding of how numbers work, they can confidently tackle all other areas of the curriculum.
  • In English, we are working on building curiosity in how the language works through developing students' understanding of the patterns they can find. We do this through our Multisensory Structured Language approach. We are always developing our students' joy of the creative writing process through our newly adopted approach - Seven Steps to Writing Success.
  • We are working to further build the engagement of our students through ‘School Wide Positive Behaviour Supports’ (SWPBS), which ensures that the students are taught about the expected behaviours and dispositions, as well as their personal rights and entitlements.
  • We will establish and communicate individual student goals through student led conferences in Term 1 and Term 4.


We have demonstrated our commitment to the education of your children over the past few years and are excited to share our learning, progress and future plans with you.

Kind regards,


Patrick Halpin
