Cheltenham East Primary School (CEPS) is situated in a quiet pocket of residential Cheltenham and draws its students from neighbouring kindergartens and day care centres. Our enthusiastic, dedicated staff provide a stimulating environment for our students who are continually encouraged to uphold our school motto of Aim High. Social and communication skills as well as values are inherent across our VELS based curriculum, driven by our CEPS Kids are Friendly Kids programme. The Cheltenham East parent community is most supportive of the school and the implemented programmes, as is evidenced by our CHATS program (Class Helpers and Teacher Support).
Our curriculum engages students in their learning, exploring and explaining the topic through the use of technology. We have specialist teachers in Art and Music, with private instrumental tuition available. Students work is displayed throughout the school. Children participate in an annual concert and Wakakirri (Junior rock eisteddfod) is held every other year. A physical education specialist teaches classes weekly. A Perceptual Motor Program (PMP) is conducted in Prep and Year 1 with parental support.
CEPS is 50 years young and has undergone much re-modelling in recent years. This will be further enhanced by Government grants providing us with flexible attractive work spaces to facilitate student learning, preparing students for living in the 21st Century.
