Principal’s Message

Welcome to Taylor Evans Public School

Dear Families:

As we begin the 2023-2024 school year, we do so with excitement and anticipation. We look forward to the challenges ahead and the chance to celebrate the wonderful learnings that happen in our school and community.

Taylor Evans is an incredible educational facility with caring staff. The staff offers many educational opportunities in a variety of learning environments. Academic programs are enriched because of the talented staff that are motivated to bring the children their best. Living and learning our motto is an important part of daily learning! The outdoor surroundings allow the students to learn beyond the four walls of the classroom and the school.

Success in learning is achieved when there is a partnership between the school and the parent community. It is our belief that students are more successful when we work together. Through cooperation and collaboration, all students will develop skills of respect and responsibility as well as work towards meeting their educational goals. It is extremely important that parents and teachers maintain open and ongoing communication.

We are always open to new ideas and welcome your input and your suggestions. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact the school. Your child’s teacher is always the first person to contact as they are the expert!

We anticipate a rewarding school year and look forward to developing a strong community partnership.

Our Motto

Together: Empathy, Effort, Excellence

He brought me his report card from the teacher
and he said
He wasn’t very proud of it
And sadly bowed his head
He was excellent in reading
And Arithmetic was fair
But I noticed there were several
Unsatisfactory’s there
But on little bit of credit that was given
Brought me joy
He was excellent in EFFORT
And I fairly hugged the boy
Oh, it doesn’t make much difference
What is written on your card
I told the little fellow
If you’re only working hard
The very goods and excellents are fine, I must agree
But the effort you are making
Means a whole lot more to me
And the thing that’s most important
When this card is put aside
Is to know in spite of it all
That doing your best you’ve tried
Just keep excellence in effort
And the rest will come to you
There isn’t any problem
That some day you’ll learn to do
And at last when you grow older
You will come to understand
That by hard and patient toiling
People have risen to command.
