Memorial Oval Primary School (or MOPS as it is affectionately known) has as its core values; Respect, Responsibility & Resilience. The school’s moral purpose is to prepare children to be inclusive, well-educated and active citizens who are socially, emotionally and physically healthy. We aim to develop self-motivated, resilient, life-long learners who can be successful in life. We strive to achieve this through developing high quality teachers to deliver effective learning programs with skills that are transferable across the curriculum, resulting in students who demonstrate the Department for Education’s mandate and goal of; Growth for every child in every class in every school.
