Welcome to Athlone Elementary School.
Athlone is located in the Athlone Community and includes the newer development of the Dunvegen Community to the west of the school. Our school is a working partnership between students, staff, parents, and the community. We are a student-centred school community committed to strong educational programs delivered in a supportive, nurturing, and safe environment. We believe that our school-wide focus on literacy in all subject areas will provide a foundation for all students to attain their personal optimum levels of achievement across the curriculum.
At Athlone School we believe that a child's career pathway begins at birth and continues throughout life. It is much more than helping them answer the question "What will I be when I grow up?" It means providing opportunities to learn and strengthen the skills and resources they need to be a confident, contributing citizen. This includes giving all children many opportunities to apply what they are learning to real-life situations; giving them hands-on experiences; using goal-setting to keep focused on what’s important; and providing formative feedback so they can reflect and grow.
