I am so impressed that Lilydale West Primary School offers an evidence based, supportive and challenging learning environment for our children. I love that students are now able to play a big role in the process of teaching and learning. My child loves to go to school every day and he relishes the team teaching environment where he can be supported or challenged when required. There are so many new and exciting things happening at LWPS, from the Positive Behavioural Support Program, well being initiatives, lunchtime clubs and support groups, various community engagement opportunities, Champion dad’s group, new sporting, creative, cultural and academic opportunities. I couldn’t be more happy with the positive direction the school is taking and have already seen the effects of the changes on my child. LWPS offers an opportunity for kids and now the community to find their tribe.
I feel incredibly blessed to have had both my sons attend Lilydale West Primary School. Each morning they were greeted by friendly, positive and engaging staff who made them feel safe and secure. They have both thrived in the nurturing learning environment that has been provided. The school staff have worked together with me over the years to support my sons to help them become resilient young men.
As soon as I walked into Lilydale West I fell in love with it. It was a smaller school, but for me that was the beauty of it. If felt so personable and it was. Each year I have had the pleasure of getting to know each of my children’s teachers, who have always been welcoming and supportive. I have been a constant parent helper over the years and feel that this is encouraged with many opportunities for not only mums, but dads and grandparents too. My family has had a positive and memorable experience.
We arrived at Lilydale West at the end of 2015, and enrolled our two boys (at that time starting Year 5 and Year 1). We quickly realised how lucky we were to have found this school. For the two years we were at the school, we found the teachers to be supportive and engaging. Both boys became established with good friends and were contributing to school events, and their strengths were identified and fostered through individual lesson plans. The teachers are very enthusiastic and passionate, and care a lot about the students – we could see this through working with them over our time there. We would be very happy to recommend Lilydale West Primary School to future families.
