Puckapunyal Primary School

The Puckapunyal P.S. is a unique school in Australia. The children of Defence Force Personnel, posted to the Pucka Military Area, comprise around 90% of our enrolment. Annually up to 50% of our students transfer interstate and overseas. The high level of mobility has a significant effect on continuity of school programs and, consequently, measurement of student achievement. For instance, few students who begin school in Prep in 2009 will be at the school for 3 years. It is difficult then to be specific about academic performance targets when the school will be dealing with a different cohort each year. To help our students settle into our school we have a full-time Defence Schools Transition Aide whose role is to help create a sense of belonging for the whole family and develop strategies to help children with the complexities of their mobile lifestyle. Our purpose is to provide a caring and supportive environment, which enables all individuals in our transient population to reach their full potential.
