Principal Message

We are proud to be a public primary school located on the lower North Shore of Sydney and a part of the NSW Department of Education. Cammeray Public School is driven by a belief that every student is capable of successful learning based on high expectations and deep engagement. I speak about "The Cammeray Way" and in my mind is a warm, welcoming and proud school, strongly built on the values of honesty, kindness and shared success that enables us to co-operate and be flexible, achieve excellence, respect one another and engage with learning and life. "Every face has a place," and everyone belongs and is made welcome.

The culture that we create together is built on an understanding that in our learning community, we all want to succeed - be that at teaching, learning, leading, parenting, sport, academics, creative and performing arts and most importantly, in having a sense of purpose and being an active citizen in today's world.

Our highly committed and involved community is dedicated to excellence in teaching and the provision of extensive sporting and performing arts opportunities which support students to develop socially, culturally and physically. In addition to the core curriculum, children enjoy success in a rich diversity of experiences including instrumental music, choir, dance, drama, chess, public speaking, debating and a wide variety of sports activities. Our school has a cohesive mix of experienced and early career teachers, dedicated to bringing out the best in every child through the implementation of quality teaching and learning programs. Our school enjoys strong community support, has an active Parents and Citizens' Association and is a part of the Harbourside Network of Schools (HNS). There is a strong ethos of inclusion, teamwork, student wellbeing and future focused learning. The school's current priorities are; Engaged Learners, Critical and Creative Thinkers and Connected Community. Strong academic programs, dedicated staff and supportive and involved parents offer every child at Cammeray Public School the best opportunity for success.

In our modern and busy lives, we acknowledge the importance of balancing academic, family, artistic, sporting and cultural and community interests, and we understand the importance of making memories and bringing people together for a shared purpose. We believe that through education, w will provide our students with the knowledge, skills and understandings they need to make a positive difference, to their own lives and to the lives of those around them.
