Welcome To Bowen Road Primary School



Bowen Road Primary was established in 1925. Its extensive grounds stretch from Bowen Road to the Brooker Highway and Albert Road. We cater for students from Kinder to Grade 6 and have our Launching Into Learning Programs which are designed for children before they reach school age. Our students come from diverse backgrounds and cultures.

We value diversity, excellence, learning and respect. We believe that relationships are key to achieving our goals.

Our mission is for all students to leave Bowen Road with the skills necessary to enable them to take their place as responsible, informed, healthy citizens who are life-long learners.

We provide programs that follow the National Curriculum and we work hard to develop students’ literacy, numeracy, physical and social skills. In addition to class programs, students experience specialist lessons in Art, Music, Library, IT and Phys Ed. and Gardening. Japanese is also part of the curriculum for older grades.

In addition to the focus on academic achievement, we work hard to develop social skills which develop respect and responsibility. We are guided by the principles of Positive Behaviour Support in managing student interactions and in ensuring we provide a supportive school environment in which students have the best chance to thrive. We provide many opportunities for older students to exercise leadership through: playground and class buddies; mentors; canteen helpers; library helpers and daily Phys Ed leaders.

We link to the local high schools to assist students with transition to high school.
