Athol Road Primary School has a current enrolment of 375 students, comprising over 30 different cultures with over 80% of students who do not speak English at home. The richly diverse multicultural community works together to create a well-resourced, orderly learning environment that caters for the needs of each individual - and acknowledges and celebrates achievements. Cultural diversity flavours all school programs and provides a background for teaching tolerance.
The school structure is organised into Learning Centres with teachers operating in Learning Centre Teams. The key focus of the school is to provide every student with Personalised, Point of Need programs based on the authentic analysis of data, where digital technologies integrate naturally into all learning. Student Voice is also a key component of all programs.
The central focus for Athol Road Primary School is its students – their learning and well-being. Building supportive, caring relationships is the school’s core building block. Students learn to work cooperatively with others, to think laterally, make their own decisions and be responsible for their own learning and behaviour.
The school strives to foster the potential talents of students by enriching their bodies, minds and creativity through a diverse range of extension activities that enhance the formal curriculum and challenge them to achieve excellence in a wide range of cultural, artistic and sporting activities – both within the school and within the wider community. Vibrant specialist programs provide students with opportunities to excel in the areas of Visual Arts, Performing Arts, Physical Education-Sport and Music.
Integration aides and multi-cultural aides support programs within the school to provide a strong liaison between school and the majority of parents through translated notices, newsletters, interpreting at parent/teacher interviews, parent review evenings, information evenings/days and general day-to-day enquiries.

In cooperation with parents and the community, staff members establish high expectations for all students as the standard and provide a safe, supportive environment where students have the opportunity to become productive, knowledgeable and responsible citizens.
