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.
Many parents select Torrens Primary School because of its traditional design, single classrooms and excellent reputation. Torrens Primary School enjoys strong community involvement and support in all aspects of school life. We believe the partnership between school and home is extremely important to develop and foster high academic achievement and a love of learning.
At Torrens Primary School we promote consideration, respect for self, teamwork, tolerance and high standards of achievement, both academic and social. The right to work and learn is paramount to our philosophy. We provide high quality educational and extra curricula programs.
At Torrens Primary School we cater for a broad range of individual differences including talented and gifted students. Special emphasis is placed on providing the best possible start during the first years of schooling. An early intervention program includes the maintenance of small classroom sizes in the junior school and the development of early literacy and numeracy skills.
As new parents to the school you are invited to join our school's varied activities.
I look forward to your association with Torrens Primary School.
