Hi, my name is Stephen Bevan and I am Principal at Madeley Primary School in Perth, Western Australia. Research shows that open and clear communication between home and school is important which is why I have created this blog. As Principal of Madeley Primary School I value your opinions and encourage your comments. Feel free to comment on any of the posts. Comments are moderated prior to going live on the blog.

I will endeavour to provide you with regular and informative posts about our school and its activities. I ask that your comments be constructive and positive with any concerns or complaints directed to me personally at school.

Madeley Primary School prides itself on the positive, open and friendly culture that has been established. Our core values of Curriculum, Community and Care are guiding principles that shape our school.

Dogs on the Oval

I have been made aware of the ongoing problem with dog owners not cleaning up after their animals when using the school oval. While the problem is usually caused by people outside our school community there have been instances of Madeley students or the parents of Madeley students allowing their dog to do its 'business' without cleaning it up. We ask that if you are bringing your dog to exercise on the oval that you also bring a plastic bag to clean up any mess that they may leave. It is very distressful for students and staff when they are forced to wear shoes that have stepped in dog poo. It can also become a health problem as dirty shoes are worn into classrooms and onto carpets and mats that students often sit on.
