Next week we celebrate ES Officer Week. These staff members are a godsend, providing our school children and community with much needed support in many ways, some of which include:

  • Welcoming the school community and visitors at our main office
  • Supporting students in the classroom
  • Student welfare support across the school
  • Supporting the school’s First Aid needs
  • Keeping our buildings and grounds in tip top shape
  • Working one to one with students on the Language Support Program
  • Koorie Education support in our school and the region
  • Auslan lessons and interpreting
  • Coordinating and manning the School garden and Pet Sanctuary
  • Being willing to do whatever needs to be done to support our school and our students in every way!

These staff members are a vital group within our school and we thank them for their wonderful support and efforts.

Earlier today all of the children dressed up as their favourite book character for the Book Week Parade. The children looked great with Harry Potter, princesses and super heroes the most popular. Thanks to all the parents, grandparents and carers who supported their children by organising the dress ups allowing their children to participate in this festivity!

Congratulations to our winners! 👏

Monday 7 August to Friday 8 September 2023

Just a reminder that the Parent Opinion Survey is currently being offered to parents on line. It is designed to assist schools in gaining an understanding of parents’ perceptions of school climate, student behaviour and student engagement. Our school will use the survey results to help inform and direct future school planning and improvement strategies.

This year the Parent Opinion Survey will finish on Friday September 8th.

Our school is conducting a survey to find out what parents / caregivers / guardians think of our school. This survey offered is designed to assist schools in gaining an understanding of families’ perceptions of school climate, student behaviour, and student engagement. The survey is optional but we encourage all families to participate. Our school will use the survey results to help inform and direct future school planning and improvement strategies.

The survey will be conducted online, only takes 20 minutes to complete, and can be accessed at any convenient time within the survey period on desktop computers, laptops, tablets or smartphones


Lately there seems to be a rise in the number of students who are coming to school out of uniform. We are understanding of the fact that sometimes uniforms can go missing or there are issues with washing.

This is a timely reminder that all students should be in appropriate uniform and if not, we ask that parents notify us via Xuno or send a note.


Just a reminder that we are currently taking Prep 2024 enrolments and are still happy to schedule tours if you know of anyone who may not yet of had the opportunity. If you have a sibling starting at Liddiard Road next year please ensure you complete and send your enrolment form into the office. 


Child safety and wellbeing at Liddiard Road Primary School information for families and the school community


The Victorian Government has announced new Child Safe Standards to further strengthen child safety across organisations, including schools. The new standards recognise the critical importance of families and the broader school community in maintaining and promoting child safety and wellbeing.


Liddiard Road Primary School has reviewed and updated our child safety policies and procedures to ensure they meet the requirements of the new standards. These are available to view on our school’s website and at the school’s front office. 


We are committed to continuous improvement in our approach to child safety and wellbeing and welcome feedback from families and members of our school community on ways we can further strengthen our child safety policies, procedures, and practices.


If you have any suggestions, comments, or questions, please contact Richard Price (Assistant Principal) on 51 74 1795.
