A community resource by Chirnside Park Primary School

Education is so much more than books and pencils, homework and study. Education is life, the experiences we share, the hurdles we overcome, the relationships we build and the lessons sometimes hard won. How we interact with the world, our peers and our parents are governed by what we learn in school as well as from the world around us.

Shared experiences, community and family are fundamental in shaping our children into positive, self-aware and intelligent little people and communication is key to keeping a community together. At Chirnside Park Primary School we believe education should be creative, inspirational and inclusive so we decided to create a specially designed resource centre to keep our families connected.

Packed with creative and fun ideas in health and self- awareness, kids activities, educational resources, school updates and support, Upschool is designed to keep you engaged, connected, informed and inspired to live, learn and play as a happy, mindful and sharing community.

This free and growing resource centre is our way of sharing positive and inspiring messages that we feel will have a direct and positive impact within our community.
