Learning is meaningful and based on relevance and children’s interests. All communication is honest, open, sharing and constant. Relationships between students, staff and families are supportive and close. Everyone is treated with respect. Achievements are celebrated and students are allowed to “let their light shine”.

Welcome to our website, have a browse and enjoy gaining an insight into how we achieve successful learning outcomes for students at Clifton Creek Primary School.

I have a long history with this school. My teaching career began at Clifton Creek, when I was a very ‘green’ but confident graduate who thought I knew it all! After experience working in other local schools and time off for family leave I eventually returned to CCPS and have been here ever since, firstly as a teacher and now as school principal.

Over the years I have seen many children and families through the gate, changes in enrolment numbers and improvements to physical infrastructure, however what remains true are our core values that drive our day to day thinking, teaching and learning.

We have a strong culture with the underlying ideals of One In, All In, Kids First and Valuing Differences as driving forces behind all of our thinking and planning. We regard our “Unique” tag as highly desirable.

Our small country school setting provides an educational environment where children can be themselves and develop as successful and confident learners.

We invite you to phone us, arrange to visit and see education in action at Clifton Creek.
