      About Elsternwick Primary School:

      At Elsternwick Primary School (EPS) students are empowered to be independent, critical thinking and collaborative learners. Their growth mindset fosters curiosity, and their confidence motivates them to thrive and succeed. The learning environment created by caring, dedicated and diligent staff cultivates an atmosphere where students feel safe, valued and included, supported in achieving academic success, while developing a positive sense of wellbeing and school pride. The school values of Respect, Responsibility, Personal Excellence and Curiosity are central to, and embedded in the school vision.

      EPS is committed to building consistent practice by embedding a whole school instructional model and incorporating high impact teaching strategies. Our staff work collaboratively to ensure all students achieve at least 12 months learning growth each year in all curriculum areas and use multiple sources of formative and summative assessment strategies/data to track our progress. We aim to provide an environment where students are supported to be curious, creative and critical thinkers whose voice is clear and valued. Our positive and collaborative climate for learning is built by staff, students, parents/carers and the community with a clearly articulated vision to ensure that student achievement, engagement and wellbeing is enhanced.

      Prospective Parents Day and Tours:

      Elsternwick Primary School ensures that all students and their families feel a part of the whole school community. To support families with their decision in enrolling their child at EPS, we provide an informative tour of the school that showcases how we successfully cater for the social, emotional and academic needs of all students.

      We also provide a comprehensive transition program for students new to the school. The program focuses on ensuring the student and parents/carers feel safe, happy and supported throughout their schooling life at EPS.
