For Parents


MYTERN is a language that encourages the children to take responsibility for their emotions. It is based on the simple metaphor of rough, red roads and smooth green roads and the all-powerful steering wheel. When children are on the rough red roads, then they are building resilience and increase their driving skills, while smooth green roads increase their health. If you would like to know more about MYTERN, contact the school.

Learning in Families Together (LIFT)

Our school has been a LIFT school since 2016. The LIFT initiative is aimed at targeting 4-8 year olds and their families. It is informed by our understanding that active, engaged parents have a significant impact on increasing learning and development outcomes for children. The LIFT initiative is designed to help ensure that our children who need it most will have additional support during the important developmental stage between Kindergarten and Year 2.

The LIFT initiative at Bridport is implemented by the LIFT Working Party, which is comprised of school staff, family and community members who meet on a monthly basis. For further information about the initiative, or to join the LIFT Working Party, please contact the office.


The school bus travels along the Waterhouse Road and Bridport Road up to Maslins Road and then returns to the school. The bus is available to transport children who live at least five kilometres away from school. The bus arrives at school at approximately 8:45 a.m. and leaves the school at 3:10 p.m. You must notify the office by 2:50 p.m. if your child will not be on the bus in the afternoon.

The school and the bus contractor work together to ensure the safety and well-being of all students while travelling on the bus. Should you have any queries or concerns regarding bus travel, please contact the bus contractor directly or a member of the school office staff.

Walking School Bus

Thursday (day subject to change) is Walking School Bus day in Terms 1 and 4. Students meet at the Community Hall at 8:30 a.m. Parents are encouraged to participate in this program to encourage younger students to walk to school. Fruit and water, kindly donated by Woolworths, is given to students once they arrive at school.


Our Facebook page is regularly updated with information on events happening within the school. Please like our Bridport Primary School page to be accepted.

Library & Parent Library

Bridport Primary School has a well-stocked library from which students can borrow a variety of fiction and non-fiction books. Classes visit the library to change books on a weekly basis. Students are also welcome to make use of the library facilities at lunch times.

Our school also has a Parent Library within the school library which contains books chosen to provide for specific needs which may arise within families. Some of these books are intended for borrowing by parents for reading by, with, or to children, and they cover subjects such as asthma, being afraid of the dark, growing up etc. Other books for parents containing parenting information are also available. We also have a range of educational board games for families to use. Parents wishing to borrow these books or games should contact the library assistant.
