Moorabbin Primary School No. 1111 dates back to 1875, making it the oldest school in the district. As a government school we have maintained high standards over a very long period.
Our core purpose is to nurture and develop the relationships between students, staff, parents and the wider community. We foster the education and wellbeing of all through the provision of a safe, challenging, supportive and dynamic learning environment where all children are challenged to excel. Our vision is that: “We are learners for life, leading the way, who make the most of every day” and that Moorabbin Primary school is ‘The Place to Excel’.
We have a dedicated team of teachers who work in teams meeting the needs of all students through targeted teaching based on the results of on-going assessment. We have daily time dedicated to the teaching of English through the Reader’s Writer’s Workshop approach. Daily focussed teaching in mathematics is also a key feature with Inquiry learning taught at all levels.
Our curriculum embodies the best of the new national curriculum and the Victorian Essential Learning Standards through AusVELS.
In addition, we have a strong value system that underpins all that we do and is at the core of student, parents and teacher behaviour and our community. Moorabbin Primary School has specialist teachers for Music, Physical Education, The Arts and Mandarin as well as an additional assistance program.
