A Message from the Principal

Principals’ message…


Welcome to Cranbourne Park Primary School. I extend a warm welcome 

to all students, families and staff.

Our school was established in 1968 and has been serving the community of Cranbourne since with a current enrolment of 370 students. We have a dedicated team of teaching and support staff who are well equipped to provide a high quality learning environment for all students.

Utilising both hands on resources and online support tools our students and teachers engage in a collaborative and safe learning space with high expectations to insist on continuous improvement for all students. The learning program is based on the Victorian Curriculum for all government schools. Students have the opportunity to develop skills across all learning areas including Literacy, Numeracy, Integrated learning topics, Health and Physical Education, Art, Music, Digital Technology and Indonesian as an additional language.

Students are all encouraged and supported to develop their leadership skills and have a voice in their learning. This is a continued focus for our school moving forward.

Our school highly values respect as a core focus. Our mindset is centered on:

  • RESPECT for yourself
  • RESPECT for others
  • RESPECT for learning
  • RESPECT for the environment

The school has a strong focus on full time attendance and student wellbeing. It is important that all students attend school all day, every day if they are to reach their full potential and have the best start to a prosperous and strong future. We have an expectation that parents and families will continue to work to support all students to make positive choices now to support them later on in life. We continue to offer support to all students to set a clear path for development of self-growth and learning.

I look forward to working with all families to improve the learning outcomes for all students. Please do not hesitate to contact me via the school office on 5996 1142 to make an appointment.
