Welcome to Caulfield Primary School – the first school to be built in Caulfield after the Education Act of 1872 gave all children access to a free education. Caulfield Primary School provides a unique opportunity for your child’s education; one of which we are fiercely proud. We are one of only eleven schools in Victoria delivering a genuine bilingual education. All our students undertake a minimum of 7.5 hours per week of instruction in Japanese. By exposing our children to ‘immersion’ in Japanese, our students are receiving a rich and authentic language experience. Research tells us that a bilingual education not only assists in the development of a second language but increases literacy skills in a child’s first language.
Another unique feature is our Early Childhood Centre. Currently comprising three 4 year old kindergarten groups and two 3 year old groups, we aim to ensure that Early Childhood Education is not just a concept but an exciting reality, where each child can develop a strong foundation to prepare them for a lifetime of learning.
With a new Leadership Team at Caulfield, including the School Council, Caulfield Primary School is currently entering an exciting phase of its long and valued history. Our Staff and Council are committed to ensuring that our children receive the best possible educational, social and physical experiences.
One of the true highlights of our school is the outstanding parent community. The parents at Caulfield make a wonderful contribution to our school in terms of practical assistance, and the welcoming and caring community feel that has evolved. This wonderful feeling extends into the wider community, where we have many wide ranging links with commercial, social and cultural organisations.
The attractive heritage buildings of Caulfield Primary provide generous well resourced, air conditioned learning spaces, and kindergartens on site. The school buildings have been refurbished and we have recently built a multipurpose hall to cater for the many events we have at our school.
The well planned and maintained gardens and play areas provide a safe and secure environment, where children enjoy a variety of outdoor activities, and learn the importance of environmental sustainability.
Those of us currently at Caulfield Primary School invite you to join us for an exciting educational journey.
Welcome to our community of learners!
