Bright Beginnings Transition

A Leading State School in the Education and Care of Children

We warmly welcome you to Weeden Heights Primary School and wish you and your children a happy and rewarding time as part of our school community.
Weeden Heights Primary School is a school where parents, teachers and children proudly work together to ensure the best possible start and future for our children.
We care about the children in our school and we are sincere in asking for your involvement in educating your child as we believe the early years are crucial to a child’s future success.
Starting school is one of the most significant steps in a young child’s life. The successful experiences in the early years of schooling are vital for their progress through school and their future success.
