Principal’s Message


Principal message

Ludmilla is an innovative school that provides exciting educational experiences for students from the local area of Ludmilla, The Narrows, Eaton, and Bagot Community. We have a rich diversity of cultures that makes our school unique. As part of our 2019 upgrade our students’ classrooms boast stunning contemporary learning environments equipped with the latest technology and sympathetic to the needs of all learners.

Our school motto is “Together we can achieve anything” and we strive hard to demonstrate this in everything we do. Our students are also supported by our school values and learner dispositions. These are known as ‘The Ludmilla Way’. I am a team player, I am kind and caring, I don’t give up, I listen to learn, I show respect and I show self control.

Our dragonfly logo is a symbol of change and a new beginning, which is how we feel about tackling the future. Much like dragonflies symbolize the change of season in Darwin – we are keen about responding to an exciting future both locally and globally.

We have a range of comprehensive future focussed programs for students, including an extensive Digital Literacy program, which ensures we have interactive boards and tables in all of our classrooms as a tool for accelerating learning and promoting engagement. Robotics and coding for all students from Transition – Year 6 to complement our STEAM program. Our specialist teachers offer Art, Music, Science, Indonesian, Circus, Kitchen Garden, History and Social Science. Additionally, each classroom is fitted with a hearing loop to support students with auditory processing and hearing needs.

Our ‘Ludmilla Early Education Precinct’, (LEEP) runs a ‘Families as First Teachers’, (FAFT) program, providing 15 hours of supported playgroups to our community each week. Together with our Preschool Program we are providing rich learning opportunities and pathways for 0 – 4 years of age. Transition to Year 2 is also part of the LEEP. Transition through to Year 2 enjoy double size classrooms with flexible learning spaces equipped with state of the art technology, small class sizes and a fulltime educational support assistant and highly skilled Early Childhood teachers.

I encourage you to take a look around our website and get in touch with us should you like to know more about our wonderful school. Being as proud as we are of Ludmilla Primary School, we are always delighted to talk about it!
