From the principal
Stuart Park Primary School is a well resourced school situated in the inner Darwin suburbs, about 3 kilometres from the centre of the city. It is a fast growing area with a great mix of the new and the old.
The school itself is one of the oldest primary schools in Darwin but you wouldn’t know it to look at it. The school went through a substantial rebuilding program which was completed in 1999. In 2009/2010 the school was again substantially upgraded as a result of the Federal Government’s ‘Building the Education Revolution’ funding. It looks, and is, very well maintained and resources are of a high standard. Visitors often comment on the magnificent gardens and the shady tropical feel.
Stuart Park Primary School celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2016. There were many events throughout the year including a community Quiz Night focused on the last 50 years; a concert "Through the Decades"; the opening of some significant areas of the school including a mural completed by our Year Six students with a local artist, Mr David Collins, an engraved paver area and seats that commemorated the input from our previous principal, the late Mr Rod Best. A time capsule was buried outside the office and it will be up to future generations to decide on when it should be dug up.
Stuart Park School is indicative of the multi-cultural nature of Darwin, its children coming from many different backgrounds with good representation from the local Greek and Chinese and more recently the Filipino families. There are 33 national languages spoken by the children in the school.
While most children live close by, a group of children travel by ferry and bus each day from across the harbour on Cox Peninsula.
The school community takes a very keen interest in the school and there is a close partnership between the school and the community. There are several well attended community events throughout the year and there are many opportunities for families to be involved in the school through committees, working in classes or the library or helping out at community events or fundraisers.
We promote a culture that respects others and helps children to grow strong both academically and socially. We endeavour to challenge children to achieve their personal best at whatever they take on. We believe that if we promote strong relationships between students and between the teachers and their students then learning will be effective.
Stuart Park School is a safe place where staff, students and the community support each other to promote the love of life long learning.
