At Parramatta Public School, we are committed to developing a rich growth mindset in our students. 'Education for life' is our motto and is evidenced by inclusive quality learning environments, high expectations and values, confident and successful future-focused learners committed to achieving their personal best.
As students, we are inspired learners, critical thinkers and collaborative workers. We strive for personal best, are self-motivated to learn and respond to engaging and challenging learning tasks. We are cared for and respected by all members of the community, and understand that learning and life requires hard work, responsibility, resilience and perseverance. We like to have fun, use technology and enjoy open learning environments. We learn any time and in any place and are driven by goals now and for the future. Our voices are heard, we accomplish great things and we lead our own learning.
