Principal's Message

In my first year as Principal at Pakenham Public School I have experienced the strength that comes from being a small school in a caring community.

Pakenham PS has a dynamic and caring staff, who know the students, their interests and skills, and the teaching methods to engage and challenge them as learners.  They genuinely enjoy being with the students and helping them grow and meet their potential.

Our school is deeply connected to the community.  We have a committed and active School Council.  Our community partners provide students with learning opportunities within and outside of the school.  We take advantage of the experiences that our village and local areas provide to us.

Our students are outstanding.  I have witnessed so many acts of genuine care and kindness, and these young people are such a pleasure to work with.  Our classes are full of diverse learners who love learning, collaborating, being creative, and taking on new challenges every day. 

Pakenham Public School is an example of what a school can be like when people put their heart into a building.  I am very proud and grateful to be a part of it.
