Principal's Welcome

It is my privilege to welcome you to Neville Bonner Primary School. Built in 2012 our school lies in the suburb of Bonner in Canberra’s Gungahlin region.  Catering for children from Preschool to Year 6 the school has an enrolment of over 800 students and is a vibrant and diverse place of learning.

The content of the learning program at Neville Bonner Primary School is informed by the Australian Curriculum and the Early Years Learning Framework. We strive to provide rich and engaging learning experiences for our students equipping them well for continued learning throughout their lives. The professional educators at Neville Bonner Primary School work together in professional learning communities to build knowledge and expertise using evidence-based practices in the areas of curriculum, pedagogy and assessment to ensure each child can thrive.

We are focussed and committed to building a strong school community which supports the development and growth of all children by ensuring that we develop strong, trusting and open relations and partnerships between children, families and school staff.

The school is committed to cultural integrity and celebrate the diversity of our multicultural community. We acknowledge the importance of its namesake Neville Bonner, Australia’s first Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander member of federal parliament and embrace the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspective of the Australian Curriculum.

I look forward to welcoming you to our school.
