Mr Jess Moroney
On behalf of the parents, staff and students, I would like to welcome you to Stirling East Primary School. Through the hard work and dedication of the Staff, we aim to provide an educational and social environment that nurtures and challenges each child and encourages them to reach their full potential. We achieve this by having high expectations of the students and providing them a safe, happy and trusting atmosphere in which to challenge themselves.
Stirling East has a reputation for being one of the best schools in the region. This success is built on a strong and active school community of students, parents and teachers, who all value the same high standards of education and creative and intellectual endeavour. We see parents as partners in our work and hope you will become very much part of our community and fully involved in your child’s achievements.
We look forward to working with you to provide the best possible education for your child in our care.
