Principal’s Welcome

‘At University Park Primary School, we work collaboratively to ensure every individual learns to their full potential and is a respectful and responsible member of the school community.’


The school’s motto of ‘Learning Together – Achieving Success’ is reflected in its team approach to teaching and learning. At our school, we deliver a holistic approach to education underpinned by high expectations taking into account the individual, academic, emotional and social needs of our students. We provide our students with the technological, social and academic requirements to become lifelong learners and productive adults in the community.

The school culture is one of excellence, underpinned by the school values of collaboration, honesty, responsibility, respect and learning. The values and the rights and responsibilities that promote a safe and engaging learning community are evident in the everyday interactions between students, parents and staff. The welcoming and supportive environment awaits you as you enter our UPPS community and your actions, daily, add to our collaborative and respectful culture.

As Principal, I am fortunate to work alongside a talented leadership team, a skilled teaching staff and a dedicated education support team to improve the learning growth and achievement of every student in literacy and numeracy with a particular focus on reading and writing. Our goal is to ensure that every child receives a rigorous and differentiated curriculum that sees them reach their full potential.

The foundation for student success is the partnership between the school and the families. I welcome you to our community and ask that you participate fully and contribute to our learning environment at every opportunity. Get to know each other as people, learn from each other, share your expertise and nurture and encourage each other to be the best we can be. I am excited for what lies ahead and l look forward to working with all families to continue to grow the positive reputation that UPPS holds in the local area and across the western suburbs of Melbourne.

I encourage you to take the time to peruse our website and call the school on 9366 1356 if you would like to discuss any matter with our friendly staff.

Best regards,

Andrea Federico
