Principal's Message

Welcome to Whitehorse Primary School.


At Whitehorse Primary we have a diverse student population and a warm, friendly and vibrant community. Our dedicated staff and students are committed to a culture of learning excellence. We are very proud of our strong curriculum program that provides high quality educational opportunities for all students.


Whitehorse Primary School’s vision is to actively support the development of the whole child by delivering life-long learning skills for the 21st Century including relevant academic, social and emotional skills. To enable this, we offer a variety of programs to cater for the interests and needs of our students. Specialist teachers provide weekly sessions in Visual Art, Chinese, Performing Arts, STEM and Physical Education. We also offer a number of student led lunchtime clubs and extra-curricular opportunities. Our Stephanie Alexander Kitchen and Garden is a key part of our school and has a strong connection to our academic and wellbeing programs.


Whitehorse Primary School also operates Seedlings@Whitehorse Kindergarten and Warekila Kindergarten. Both programs offer support for 3 year old and 4 year old children. Students in these programs are able to forge a close connection with our school and ongoing access to our school facilities prepares children for a successful transition into primary school.


Students are supported throughout their school journey with many focussed programs and by ensuring that the learning environment is safe, happy and supportive. We encourage parent participation in the programs of the school and welcome feedback from the community.


We encourage prospective families to contact us to make a time to see our great school in action!
