A Message from the Principal

It is with great excitement and a real privilege that I introduce myself as the principal of Ardeer Primary School. I warmly welcome you and your family to our wonderful school.


We value parent and school partnerships greatly and constantly seek to nurture this strong relationship. We know that this is a fundamental aspect of supporting our ongoing pursuit of delivering the highest educational and wellbeing outcomes for every child, every day. We acknowledge that it does indeed “… take a village to raise a child.” 


Ardeer Primary School is a very uniquely sized metropolitan school. Given our relatively small student population, we provide an extremely personalised learning experience for every student. We teach and provide tailored support to each child at the point of need. All staff have a comprehensive understanding of all students’ needs across the school; students always remain central to our daily work.


Ardeer Primary School is an inclusive school where children are safe and learn in a stimulating collaborative environment. We celebrate the rich diversity of our school community. Ensuring high levels of student voice and agency in our daily practices is a key priority at our school.  


Our school values of Co-operation, Honesty, Kindness, Perseverance, Respect and Responsibility help shape our school and daily practices.


We have an amazingly committed staff and pride ourselves on the wonderful school climate that we create in which all staff and students thrive. We have an unrelenting pursuit of developing practice excellence, ensuring ongoing collaborative opportunities focused on building staff capacity and driving school improvement.


We have high expectations of all staff, students and families and maintain a strong focus on learning and excellence. We are committed to high academic standards; our core focus is on the teaching of Literacy and Numeracy. 


I look forward to welcoming you and your child to Ardeer Primary School in person and am thrilled at the prospect of sharing in your child’s educational journey. 


Yours sincerely


John Mifsud
