Principals Message


Welcome to Craigieburn Primary School

We are excited about the opportunity to work with you during the next seven years of your child’s education. Together we will be able to foster an enjoyment in learning and a strong work ethic.

We will work with your children to achieve our School Vision:

“For all children to reach their full potential and become effective members of society.”

We provide up to date educational programs for all children, with differentiated learning in all core curriculum areas based on your child’s ability.  The children have the opportunity to participate in a diverse curriculum covering all of the main areas including specialist programs in Art, Performing Arts, ICT (Computer), Physical Education and Italian.

Our classroom teachers are keen to develop a safe and caring environment within their classrooms, and endeavour to make personal attachments with their students and families.

We would like to encourage you to participate in the school. The following is a list of some of the activities you can volunteer for:

  • Member of our Parent Fundraising Group – help out with fundraising events and whole school activities.
  • Assisting in the classroom with reading, spelling or other areas.
  • Helping out at the canteen, working bees, excursions etc.
  • Member of School Council – integral team who assist the school in decision making.

Schools are a great place to meet up with other people in the community and develop friendships which can last forever. We look forward to meeting up with you regularly.

Please feel free to contact us at any time if you have any issues or suggestions you believe will enhance your child’s enjoyment of, and success at school.
