A word from the Principal

Welcome to Woodland Grove Primary School.

It is a privilege and honour to be the foundation Principal for Woodland Grove Primary School.

The focus for our school will be to cater for the ‘whole child’ through a Visible Learning and Visible Wellbeing focus.

Visible Learning is about ensuring children are able to reach their academic potential by making sure the learning intentions and success criteria are made clear. It is also about using teaching and learning strategies that are effective and have the greatest impact on student learning.

Visible Wellbeing is about making sure the social and emotional development of children is catered for at our school. We know that if children feel happy and safe at school and are able to make connections with staff and other students that their learning is more likely to flourish.

Prior to my appointment to Woodland Grove Primary School I had a short stint as Principal at Ocean Road Primary School in Dawesville. Before working at Ocean Road my career had been at country schools from Dongara District High School to Gascoyne Junction Primary School and more recently at Lake Grace District High School.

I am very excited about leading Woodland Grove Primary School. My vision is that our school will embrace our motto “GROWING AND LEARNING TOGETHER” through a community committed to the education of our children.

Mrs Ashley Mottershead

Principal, Woodland Grove Primary School
