I am writing to inform you that I will be taking long service leave at the end of this term before retiring in November. I have been very privileged to have been able to have a career doing something that I love and have had a fabulous time working (and playing) at Torrens Primary School. I wish all staff, students and their families all the best for the future. But it is now time for me to pursue other interests which I am very much looking forward too.
In my absence Rachel Matthews will be assuming the Principal’s role before it is advertised for permanent filling. Louise Zietlhofer will take up the Deputy Principal’s position and Kelly Knox will be our new Executive Teacher.

At Torrens Primary School we are proud of the rich educational environment and rigorous programs provided for all students. Our commitment is to work in partnership with parents, striving to ensure that all students are given every opportunity to achieve their full potential.
The school lies in the older part of Woden Valley and has a current enrolment of around 500 students from Preschool to Year 6. Three preschool units are attached to Torrens Primary School Chifley, Pearce and Torrens.
Torrens Primary School has a traditional design, single classrooms and an excellent reputation. Torrens Primary School enjoys strong community involvement and support in all aspects of school life. The partnership between school and home is extremely important to develop and foster high academic achievement and a love of learning in our students.
At Torrens Primary School teamwork and tolerance are promoted. High quality educational and extra curricula programs are presented by an extremely dedicated and involved team of staff.
At Torrens Primary School we cater for a broad range of individual differences including gifted and talented students and students with special needs. Emphasis is also placed on providing the best possible start during the first years of schooling. Early intervention programs include the development of early literacy and numeracy skills through an extremely active support team, including the Deputy Principal, executive teachers, counsellor, EALD teacher, learning assistants, Chaplain, parents and special interest partners such as Gateways, Community Services and more.
As new parents to the school you are invited to join our school's varied activities. These are advertised on the calendar each term and through the school newsletter which is posted on this site each term week on Thursdays.
I look forward to your association with Torrens Primary School.
