Ellwood Memorial Public School is a safe and welcoming place where our students are motivated and excited about learning. Our staff and volunteers are caring, supportive people who promote a strong work ethic, mutual respect and community responsibility that enable all students to attain their personal best. Our school is a place where everyone develops their individual talents to think critically, dream boldly, and value each other with deference.
In the classroom, students are encouraged to set achievable goals for themselves and are supported by our highly trained teachers. Student learning at the highest standard is achieved through professional collaboration, consultation with parents, differentiated teaching methods to meet the various learning styles and academic needs of students, and a commitment to student success. We regularly celebrate the successes of our students both in the classroom and around our school.
Our staff exceeds expectations by providing our students with an active extracurricular experience. Students have many opportunities to participate in sports (e.g., soccer, flag football, floor hockey, track and field, cross country running and Star Games), in the arts (e.g., choir, rap group, recorder club and Orff club), in leadership roles (e.g., playground activity leaders, bus monitors and kindergarten helpers) and in after school tutoring. Every student has the opportunity to be engaged and successful.
At Ellwood Memorial, we challenge our students to achieve to their highest standard. Be Good. Do Good. Will Good.
