School Profile

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.

We offer three educational programs at Athlone: Full Day KindergartenRegular Grade 1 - 6, and Behavior and Learning Assistance Program and we are a Balanced Literacy, Apple and Leader in Me school.  

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.
