Principal's message

"Every parent wants to find a school where their child will receive the very best education - a school where their child will develop strong values and good character; a school where their child will be cared for and respected; and a school that their child is proud to attend. We strive to create that atmosphere at Charlestown South Public School everyday.

We are in that envious and fortunate position of being small enough for every child to know each other, and for every teacher to know every child. Yet, we are large enough at 170 students for our children to never miss out on the vast array of opportunities that our school offers. Our Concert Band, Choir, Sporting Teams, Debating Teams are always highly successful. Our Choir's victory in Choralfest, as well as our top 10 finish in the Zone Athletics out of 24 schools (nearly all much larger), are testament to that variety and success."

At Charlestown South PS we aim at turning today's children into tomorrow's leaders."
