Our School - Principal's Message

Welcome to Coburg Primary School. Our school strives to ensure that every child is provided with the best learning opportunities in an environment that is caring, positive and inspiring.

We have dedicated staff who work collaboratively to provide each student with solid foundations at every stage of their learning. To help us achieve this we implement a range of programs across the school that we implement in addition to the Victorian Curriculum.

Foundation: Curiosity (Developmental Play)

Year 1: Active Mindfulness

Year 2: Clucky Kids (Sustainability and Chickens)

Year 3 /4: Seed to Table

Year 5/6: Voices and Choices

Our school values of Courage, Empathy, Curiosity and Respect underpin everything that we do at Coburg Primary School and are an integral part of our culture.

We also implement whole school programs. One of our main programs is School Wide Positive Behaviour which is a framework for all of our wellbeing programs such as Bully Busters, Respectful Relationships, and Restorative Practices. We also have a very exciting STEM program that is integrated into the classroom inquiry topics along with a 1-1 ipad program in years 3-6.

In 2019 we embark on a new adventure with an immersion Auslan program commencing as our  preferred language. This is very exciting and we can’t wait to get started. Our other specialist programs that we offer are Visual Arts, Music and Physical Education. Performing Arts classes coincide with our School Production every second year.

Our Annual Implementation Program for 2020 will focus on improving literacy, numeracy, student voice and agency and the school wide positive behaviour program.

Our extra curricula programs include Instrumental Music ( provided by Junior Rockers), lunch time rock bands, camps for students in 3-6, Year 2 sleep over, Art Show and School Production ( alternating years) and other special whole school days such as Book Week, Harmony Week, Footy Day, School values Week, Junior School Council Days.


I am delighted to lead the Coburg Primary School Community and I will be conducting tours every Tuesday for parents or carers who are interested in experiencing first hand our amazing school.
