Forrest Primary School is well-situated in the National Parliamentary Triangle with the iconic flagpole dominating the landscape. The school has an international feel with 40% of enrolments from diverse linguistic and cultural backgrounds.
The school responds to this by providing an international style of education whereby we bring hearts and minds together to develop global citizens who will make a difference in the world. In order to develop learners who are knowledgeable thinkers and compassionate we provide a challenging and relevant educational environment.
The preschool to year 6 program is based on integrated inquiry. The program delivers the Australian curriculum it is concept driven and balances the short term and long term knowledge needs of each child and it helps children make considered choices and take positive actions that make the world a better place.
In all of our endeavours we maintain the integrity of an individualised program that is tailored to the needs of every child. This has the effect of providing both extension and remediation as appropriate. In addition Forrest has a brass band for year 5 and year 6 students.
The school has strengthened its restorative practice approach to both student welfare and staff cohesion. This approach focuses on developing and maintaining healthy thriving relationships that underpin effective learning. From this approach we cultivate a strong staff culture and we develop students who are confident emotionally literate and resilient.
