About Our School

Respect Achievement Integrity Sustainability

Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to Thiele Primary School. Thiele Primary School, is one of three schools on the Aberfoyle Park Primary School Campus. Our goal is to ensure that our students become independent, lifelong learners who are productive, well-informed citizens. We provide a range of excellent facilities, programs and opportunities for all students to achieve in a positive environment fostering growth mindset where students learn within our core values of Respect, Achievement, Integrity and Sustainability.

Students are the centre of everything we do. Our dedicated teaching staff, supportive administrative team and learning support personnel work together to achieve improve learning outcomes for all students. We have a strong sense of community as we work within our unique community of Campus and extend into the wider community of Aberfoyle Park and the Onkaparinga Council.

Through the use of specialist programs, dedicated teachers and the use of technological tools our students from Reception to Year 6, learn to make sense of the ever-expanding network of information as they inquire, explore and interpret a wide range of literature providing them a rich understanding of the world around them.

To help all students achieve, I encourage all families to be part of their children’s learning experiences in our learning community. Through the collaboration of staff, students and families we aspire to continue to strengthen our partnership of home and school to ensure our goal is achieved.

We look forward to working with you and your children.

Mission

Thiele Primary School will work to ensure that our students become independent lifelong learners who are productive and well informed community members and citizens.

Values

Respect

Showing that we can look after ourselves, our environment and others.  This includes taking care of our belongings and the equipment we use in the environment where we work, play and live. It also means that we care about our learning, believing that we can do our best.

Sustainability

Appreciating and respecting the diversity of views and values that influence sustainable. The ability to meet the needs of the present without compromising the future generations to meet their needs.

Achievement

With effort you can accomplish success and the realisation that learning is lifelong and can be accomplished in many forms. Achievement is accumulative over a period of time. It also means that we care about our learning, believing that we can do our best.

Integrity

Having strong, consistent moral principles that you refuse to change. It is having an honesty and truthfulness in your actions even when no one is watching. It is not one single action but is ongoing in everything you do. It means doing the right thing even though it may be hard, sharing your feelings and always being responsible for your actions.
