From the Principal

Welcome to Bankstown Public School. We are a large multicultural comprehensive Primary school, with over 98% of our students coming from a background other than English. Our school has an extremely proud tradition of providing rich learning opportunities for all students to experience success and value life-long learning.

Our school culture and beliefs are underpinned by our community values of Respect, Responsibility, Pride, Trust, Teamwork, Commitment, Friendship and Honesty. These values are the pillars of our newly created Positive Behaviour for Learning strategy which reinforces clear expectations of safe, respectful learners.

The staff at Bankstown Public School are compassionate, highly skilled and dedicated to providing quality education programs focussed on the essential skills in literacy and numeracy, within an inclusive and supportive environment.

Bankstown Public School offers an extensive range of opportunities for all students in sport, public speaking, debating, dance, music and environmental initiatives. Our school is leading the way with innovative teaching and learning methods, embedding technological practices to create relevant, authentic learning experiences and opportunities.

We aim to ensure that every family has an enjoyable and extremely rewarding relationship with our school. We value community participation and encourage parents to take a keen interest in their child’s educational journey. We believe that successful schooling is a partnership between staff and parents, and as partners our primary focus is building a school environment that strives to achieve the best possible outcomes for all pupils.
