About Us

Principal’s Message

Welcome to Mulgrave Primary School.

This year we have grown to just over 350 students. Our school boasts a strong sense of ‘community’. Teachers, parents and students work together to ensure that we offer the best teaching and learning opportunities for all of our students. Our quality programs seek to identify the individual learning needs of every child and teach accordingly so that all students are provided with the opportunity to reach their individual potential.  We offer a broad range of timetabled Specialist programs including Science, Physical Education, Music, Visual and Performing Arts and the additional language taught is Chinese Mandarin. The school is very well resourced with ample computer technology and curriculum resources to meet the needs of all of our students.

Recently we have implemented several tools to assist our parent community – Apps such as Qkr! and Flexibuzz and Online Booking systems such as schoolinterviews.com.au that enable parents to process payments, receive communication and access meeting scheduling from home. We will continue to offer tools and resources for parents to improve home/school communications and relationships.

Mulgrave Primary School

Mulgrave Primary School is set on beautiful, exceptionally spacious grounds with lots of room for children to play and interact with each other. Facilities at the school have been very much upgraded over the past year. Facilities at the school are excellent. A major focus at the school is our timetabled Science Program which students thoroughly enjoy.

Each classroom has an interactive whiteboard that provides teachers with a powerful tool to both inspire and motivate students to be engaged in their learning. We also have a generous number of computers in each classroom, as well as having portable devices such as netbook computers, laptops and ipads for student use.

Enrolments at the school are increasing each year. In 2017 we have 16 grades and a student enrolment of approximately 350. All children are involved in sporting programs and Preps attend PMP sessions (Perceptual Motor Program) to assist them in developing strong gross motor skills, good balance etc. The school offers a swimming program, camp program, student leadership programs, extra curricula activities including lunchtime activities and the opportunity to learn a second language – Chinese Mandarin.

At Mulgrave Primary School, we have a strong focus on Literacy and Numeracy to ensure that all children have the fundamentals of learning established. We focus on catering for individual needs and work closely with our families on the learning journey. Transition Programs for children due to start school in 2018 will commence in July. We are already taking enrolments for next year. We pride ourselves in providing a quality transition program that ensures children are well-prepared and confident when they embark on their first experience of schooling. Please visit the enrolment part of our website for more information about our 2017-2018 Transition Program.
