We would like to acknowledge the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation as the traditional custodians of the land on which our school stands. We pay our respects to all First Nations elders, both past, present and emerging.
The students have settled back into school really well this term and were very excited to be able to have our first whole school assembly for the year (and our first in over two years!!) Whole school assemblies will be held every two weeks. The next assembly is on Friday May 13th at 2.45pm in the gym. Parents are welcome to attend.
The new school council had its first meeting last term. Your school councillors this year are Amanda Saunders, Koren Staaf, Ahmed Nadeem and Tamara Guy. I want to thank them for volunteering and encourage others to ask if they would also like to volunteer at the school.
Students have all been preparing for their excursion to the zoo by learning about animals and habitats in Science (Biology). It has been lovely to walk through the classes and see students so engaged in the work they are doing. I feel very proud of the students at here at Broadmeadows Valley.

Students in years 3 and 5 will be sitting NAPLAN assessments in the week beginning May 9th. It is very important for all students to sit these assessments. As students’ progress through their school years, it’s important to check how well they are learning the essential skills of reading, writing and numeracy. NAPLAN assesses the literacy and numeracy skills that students are learning through the school curriculum and allows parents/carers to see how their child is progressing against national standards over time. You can support your child by reassuring them that NAPLAN is a part of their school program and reminding them to simply do their best.
The Broadmeadows Valley Primary School Annual General Meeting will be held at 4.30-5.00pm on Tuesday 17th May. The meeting is a chance for the school leadership team to present the Annual Report to the School Community and provides principals and school councils with an opportunity to share the year’s achievements and progression. This includes reflecting on the school’s performance and explaining the positive impact of school efforts on student outcomes.
The preparation and publication of an Annual Report is a legislative and regulatory requirement for all schools under the Education and Training Reform Act 2006 (Vic), Ministerial Order 1280 and the National Education Agreement 2008. It reflects the Department of Education's commitment to building pride and confidence in our government schools and highlights the importance of transparent communication about school performance with our school communities.
This is a public meeting and any interested parents are encouraged to attend.
Broadmeadows Valley Primary School is committed to the safety and wellbeing of all children and young people. This will be the primary focus of our care and decision-making. Broadmeadows Valley Primary School has zero tolerance for child abuse and is committed to providing a child safe environment.
