About our school

At Arcadia Public School we have an exceptional team of highly skilled professional teachers, who provide each child with teaching that is purposeful, challenging and responds to their individual interests and talents. Subjects are brought to life by our teachers’ creativity, knowledge, and enthusiasm which inspire students to explore their individual interests and reach their full potential. 

Our teaching team are committed to guiding and nurturing your child, understanding and developing them into happy, confident and successful children. This will always remain our priority at Arcadia Public School.

We remain at the forefront of innovative teaching practice through a comprehensive program of professional development and training. This results in outstanding teaching in all classrooms where a dynamic learning environment challenges our students to achieve and provides them with the best possible start in their academic future.

Our highly experienced teachers get the best out of every child. 

A Day at Arcadia - Bell Times and Term Dates

Our school day begins at 9am. The children play in the playground until the first bell at 9:25am when they go to the toilet and have a drink ready for their morning of learning.

At 9:30am the second bell signals our short morning assembly where any messages are conveyed by students, teachers or parents.

As a component of our healthy living ethos the students bring a small piece of fruit or vegetable to eat during the morning - munch and crunch.

On Monday and Tuesday the 11am bell tells the students that it is time for whole school fitness. Morning tea starts at 11:00am and finishes at 11:30am.

On Wednesday - Scripture is from 11:30am until 12:00pm. Choir is from 12:05pm until 12:50pm and whole school singing is from 12:50pm till 1pm.

Lunch begins at 1:10pm with the children excused to play at 1:20pm if they have finished eating. Play concludes at 2pm with the bell signalling to the children that they must go to the toilet and have a drink.

Our school day concludes at 3:30pm. Students travelling by bus are supervised as they wait in the bus area. Hills Bus is the bus company operating at Arcadia. Parents can apply for student Opal Cards online at
