Welcome to West Lakes Shore School R-7

Welcome to the West Lakes Shore School Community. West Lakes Shore School R-7 is a government funded school for the Department for Education and Child Development providing quality education for Reception to Year 7 children. West Lakes Shore School services the local community and priority is given to families located within the zone. We welcome enquiries for enrolment from families outside the zoned area but acceptance will depend upon numbers.  Enrolment procedure and Zone Map

The inclusive culture of the school is shaped by five key, agreed values; Respect, Responsibility, Honesty, Excellence and Resilience with staff, students and the parent community working closely together to support each other through the enactment of these values.

The challenges of the world facing our children in the future will be very different from the world that we have experienced.

As young adults our children will be required to have a variety of skills and strategies such as confidence in their own very special abilities, strength in communication, initiative, positive self-esteem, caring about people and the environment, social responsibility and the ability to confidently operate in an ever changing technological world.

At West Lakes Shore School staff members focus on your child as an individual and recognise his/her differences, experiences and needs. We invite you to work in partnership with us as we build on the foundations which you as parents have established at home and work together to make your child’s education an enriching experience.

It is our belief that learning is a life-long process and identifying, understanding and valuing the particular learning style of each child is of great importance to the education provided for your child.

We trust that you will actively participate in West Lakes Shore School and its community of learners.
