Principal's Welcome

Welcome and thank you for taking the time to visit our website and considering Buxton Primary School for your child’s education. We are very proud of the diverse learning programs and extracurricular opportunities we offer here. Our school offers the best of both worlds, a small, connected and supportive community and an enriching and rigorous curriculum program. All set within extensive grounds and a natural bushland setting at the base of the Cathedral Range, on the lands of the Taungurung people.

Our school operates on the philosophy that a positive, nurturing and enriching school climate is essential to helping each individual reach their potential personally, socially and academically. We recognise the uniqueness of each individual and our learning programs are closely tailored to each students’ needs.

Buxton Primary School has very strong community connections and parent representation. Our School Council, made up of parents and staff, actively work together to plan the future direction of our school and provide exciting programs for our students. We have a great network of volunteers who support our school both within the classroom and via buildings and grounds projects.

Our experienced and enthusiastic teachers work as a cohesive team of professionals and put student learning and wellbeing at the centre of everything they do. The teachers are well supported by our capable Education Support staff and Business Manager.

We have been undergoing a refreshing period of growth and renewal at Buxton Primary School and we are proud to show you what we can offer your child. I encourage you to contact me by phone or email at any time if you have any further questions. Choosing a school is a significant decision and we want to provide you with all the information you need to feel confident in your decision.

Best wishes,
Sarah Irving
Principal
