National Walk Safely to School Day


National Walk Safely to School Day (WSTSD) is on Friday 18 May 2018 but unfortunately this is on our pupil free day, therefore this year we will take part on Thursday 17th of May.   On this day we are asking families to walk to school or take public transport, instead of driving!


This community event promotes Road Safety, Health, Public Transport and the Environment.  We also know children who are regularly physically active are healthier, perform better academically and are less likely to be overweight, which can lead to the long-term health issues.  

So c’mon ditch the car and grab your sneakers and walk to school  on Thursday 17th of May!

Assemblies 2018

This year we are taking the opportunity to implement some new changes to the format of assemblies at East Marden Primary. Our aim is to make them shorter, interactive with a greater focus on sharing student learning. Students will be the primary innovators in planning, organising and presenting assemblies.  Students will take a leading role in showcasing learning through focus areas with their buddy classes.

The school will be divided into two groups from years R-7 and assemblies will be held on alternate weeks on Fridays at 9am in the gym.

This term the first assemblies will be held on Friday (week 10) and Friday (week 11) at 9am.

Let’s Chat over Coffee

Families are warming invited to join us for coffee and lots of friendly chatter! Don’t mess a great opportunity to connect with your school community after your child’s assembly.
