Welcome to Port Melbourne Primary School

It is a privilege to lead a school with such a rich history of educational excellence. A central pillar of this community for over 130 years, Port Melbourne Primary School has consistently exemplified academic excellence, fostered resilient learners, and cultivated a vibrant community partnership that celebrates both tradition and forward-thinking innovation.

Located at the intersection of Graham and Clark Streets, and perfectly positioned between the beach and Melbourne's CBD, our school blends its inner-city setting with spacious and inviting grounds. This unique combination creates the ideal backdrop for outstanding teaching and learning alongside expansive spaces for physical and creative pursuits.

Our state-of-the-art modern learning spaces complement an innovative co-teaching model, ensuring that each student benefits from personalised attention and a curriculum tailored to their unique strengths. Our outstanding academic results are a reflection of this dedication.

Beyond our core curriculum, the breadth of our specialist opportunities—from French and STEM to Visual and Performing Arts—ensures that every student discovers and hones their passion. Additionally, our leading sports program, which includes robust interschool "gala days", instills teamwork, resilience, and a love for physical activity.

But what truly sets us apart is our community. Parents, educators, and students come together, creating a tight-knit environment that supports, nurtures, and celebrates every individual. This active and engaged community is the cornerstone of our continued success.

I invite you to explore our website to get a glimpse of what makes Port Melbourne Primary School special. Better yet, book in to join me on a student-led tour to experience our school's unique blend of tradition and innovation firsthand. I look forward to showing you around.
