On behalf of the staff and school council, I would like to extend a warm welcome to all children and parents of the school, and also to those beginning at Moorabbin Primary School. I am extremely proud and honoured to be this wonderful school's Principal and cherish the opportunity to assist in the development of our most precious resource - our children.
Moorabbin Primary School has been at the centre of the Moorabbin, Hampton East and Highett communities for many years now with the original building dating from 1875. While some suburbs may have been renamed over time, what remains the same is the high quality education your child will receive by attending Moorabbin Primary School.
We are a family orientated school with a current enrolment of approximately 280 students. At Moorabbin Primary School each child is valued and encouraged to reach their full potential. Just as each child is an individual with their own character and needs, so too their educational growth is unique. The teachers are committed to nurturing and developing the ability of each child through carefully planned and innovative teaching programs.
You will find the members of the Moorabbin community most welcoming and we invite you to become involved in your child’s education through joining in the many parent activities on offer.
We have a strong Preschool to Prep Orientation program and welcome parents to come and learn more about our wonderful school. For families of children commencing school in the near future, I invite you and your child to come and observe our team of students and teachers in action, and see firsthand the many ways in which Moorabbin Primary can provide an excellent education for your child. School tours are available at 9:30am upon appointment - please contact the school office on 9555 1101.
Students at Moorabbin Primary School are involved in programs such as Circle Time to create a sense of belonging and reinforce our genuine concern for student wellbeing. In addition to this it enables students to make a seamless transition from one year level to another.
Our students are highly motivated and are also supported by committed parents and families. Parents are encouraged, at all times, to communicate with teachers and the school leaders on issues that are of interest or concern to them.
Moorabbin Primary School staff are enthusiastic highly professional educators and bring a wealth of knowledge and commitment to their crucial task of guiding students towards a fulfilling and productive seven years of primary education. Our students achievements in their learning is a direct result of the dedicated, professional teachers who constantly provide diverse, rich, engaging and outstanding educational programs within an environment which is caring, friendly, respective and responsive to the needs of our students.
As Principal, my door is always open to parents wishing to discuss their child's progress or anything at all related to the school. I welcome and encourage you to be involved as this is the best way to "be learners for life” and be immersed in what schooling is about today.
I look forward to meeting and working with you,
