Principal’s Message

Hello and welcome to Kew Primary School.

My name is James Penson and I am both honoured and proud to be the Principal of this school.  

Schools are fantastic places to be a part of and what makes them great are the students, teachers and parents.  At Kew Primary we are really fortunate to have such a dynamic and committed teaching team supported by a vibrant, diverse and active school community.   

My focus as Principal of Kew Primary is to ensure our students are given the environment in which to thrive and the opportunities, support and encouragement to achieve their very best. This is achieved when students, teachers and parents are unified in their outlook and can partner effectively.

We deliver a comprehensive education built around the core pillars of literacy, numeracy and curiosity. Our broad curriculum also offers rich experiences in Physical Education, Performing and Visual Arts and French, all supported by an extensive array of learning technologies.

In addition, we are committed to developing our students into the best individuals they can be through a program built on our values of Cooperation, Acceptance, Respect and Excellence. In this way we aim to best prepare our students for the next stage of their learning journey as they move to secondary school.

Please spend some time browsing through our website and learning more about what we do at Kew. We have a lot to be proud of and would welcome the opportunity to share this with you.

You are also welcome to tour the school, see us in operation and discuss how we can enhance your child’s education. If you have any questions, please contact me through the school office to make a time to meet.

I look forward to working in a partnership with you to deliver an excellent education for your child; an education that is rich in experiences, personalised and flexible in delivery, and comprehensive in its scope.

James Penson
