Celebrations

At the end of terms 1, 2 and 3 a Celebration Assembly is held. This assembly showcases student work and achievements for the term. The School Pride Award is presented to a worthy recipient on this occasion.

The End of Year Concert and Graduation is the final celebration of student work for the year. Students prepare and present a number of skits or as in 2016 a play along with a number of musical items. A number of awards are presented to students who have met the award criteria throughout the year. These awards are

  • The Angela Baker Reading Award. Angela was a past parent of the school who volunteered much of her time with students assisting with and passing on her love of reading. The award is presented in her memory by her family each year.
  • The Morialta Citizenship Award. John Gardner MP, our local state representative sponsors this award presented to a student who has proven to be a great citizen in the previous 12 months.

The event is also an opportunity to farewell our year 7 graduating students. Each graduate gives a short speech and is presented with a certificate and gift to remember their primary school years.

History

Basket Range Primary School has been at the heart of its community since it was founded in 1885. It's first Headteacher was a Michael McDonough who began with just nine students and taught and lived in the beautiful building which is our main school building. The children learn about and are proud of the local history, which they feel connected to through stories passed on to them by local elders and residents in our history enquiry projects.

Our outdoor spaces play a large role in the children's learning. All of our students learn about and are involved in environmental, design and building projects and learn to sustain and maintain the natural environment. These lessons develop in the children a strong sense of responsibility and connection to the world around them.

With small classes our very experienced and dedicated teachers have the opportunity to give each student individual attention. Our philosophy is to educate the 'whole child' in all their capacities; physical, emotional and intellectual. Every student is encouraged and supported to fully participate in all learning experiences to develop a balanced growth.

Our school is proud of its outstanding sense of community where students, staff, parents and community members work co-operatively and with mutual respect. Together we research and review new and relevant learning methodologies and models to bring the best opportunities and choices to our community and to our students.

If you would like to know more about our dual stream school please ring and make a time to come on a tour. We would love the opportunity to talk to you about how special our school is and the amazing opportunities that we can offer your child.
