"My time at Spencer Park was one of the most monumental and life changing things that happened to me. I have autism and at Spencer Park I always felt supported and valued by my teachers, EAs and friends. I worked hard and became Student Councillor in Year 6. I also helped my team during the Spelling Championships and we won! A little bit of advice I learnt at Spencer Park is that there are NO limits! Follow your dreams!"

"I attended Spencer Park Primary School from 2003 until 2011, and will always look back at my years there with fond memories. Throughout my time at the school my academic and personal growth were always supported by the incredible staff, and I formed strong bonds with my classmates that I still maintain to this day. I'm currently at the Australian National University in Canberra, where I am studying a Bachelor of Engineering, Majoring in Mechatronics and Computer Science. Spencer Park makes up a large part of who I am today and I'm forever grateful for growing up in such a supportive environment."

"Having heard excellent things about SPPS throughout the Albany Community, we felt comfortable and confident sending our two children to the school and it has more than lived up to our high expectations. Whenever we visit the school, we are always impressed with the warm and welcoming atmosphere and sense of community. Both our children thoroughly enjoy their time at school and we love that they are being encouraged to develop a passion for learning, as well as a strong set of values that compliment our own family beliefs. Staff are exceptional at what they do, providing for a wide variety of educational needs and nurturing all students to achieve their best."

"Four girls, four personalities and four very different packages of needs, all of which have been nurtured by SPPS. Over the past 8 years we’ve watched our daughters (2 with special needs) grow in confidence and character. Our family enjoys the vibrant learning environments, opportunities for parent involvement and the positive wrap around support from all levels of staff. Our daughter Rebecca has autism, the incredible support and respect she received from staff and her peers led to her selection as a Student Councillor in Year 6. She graduated completely prepared for mainstream high school, a huge collaborative achievement. Outside of the classroom our girls participate in community events, ANZAC parades, choir performances, art exhibitions, academic challenges and sporting endeavours. SPPS has a fantastic sense of community that we are excited to be a part of!"
"I couldn’t have wished for a better village and start for my neurodivergent son. Everyone has exceeded my expectations in quality of care in all aspects and little man is thriving. Makes a mumma feel safe and happy. Thank you all."

We have found it to be a safe and caring learning environment for our children. Our two boys look forward to going to school each day and are thriving here. As a parent, I'm grateful that I can send my children to a school where they are treated with care and compassion and I feel that the school's values align closely with our own family values."
"Through our 4 children we have been associated with SPPS for 15 years. It has been nothing but a good experience for our family. We have felt supported and our needs met consistently."
"I spent nine years at Spencer Park and it was nothing but an enjoyable experience for myself and my family. The education and support I received set me up for successful results in both primary and high school. I am now going on to study Journalism at the University of Western Australia."
Both Michael and myself are very happy and proud to be part of the Spencer Park Primary School community. All 3 of our children attend this wonderful, inclusive school. It is so lovely seeing all of them come home from school, excited and happy, they are always very eager to tell us about the great day they have had and what their favourite part of their day was. We have found all staff to be very approachable and accommodating, no problem is ever too big or too hard. With great communication provided we are able to express our children's needs openly and know that measures will be put in place to provide the very best of care to our children, this is a lovely peace of mind having children with ASD and ADHD diagnoses. We are so glad that we have chosen Spencer Park Primary School for our children's primary schooling. We look forward to our children's future and know that high school will not be as daunting for our kids as their early childhood foundations have been strong, with great care and respect provided by their loving and caring teachers, backed wonderfully by a great leadership team.
"My four children attended SPPS from Kindy to Year 6 with the fourth graduating in 2017. My eldest began kindy in 2003 so I had children attending for 15 years. During my involvement with the school I have found the teachers to be, approachable, caring and dedicated to providing excellent learning opportunities for the students and strived to meet the needs of all. As well as providing an engaging and appropriate educational programme, there were numerous opportunities for students to be involved in other varied activities such as music, sport and art performances and exhibitions. I also found that the school consistently showed strong administration and leadership and welcomed input from parents and the community."
"I love Spencer Park because I like learning about Science every Wednesday with Mrs Murray in the lab."
