Moonee Ponds Primary School is a place where all students feel safe, are respected and highly challenged. Our teachers work in highly effective teams, planning for the success and learning of every child in the school. Together they have created a vibrant reading, thinking and problem solving culture in every classroom. Out of School Hours Care is available on site through partnership with the YMCA Healthy Kids Program.

As well as the classroom teaching teams, students have access to specialist classrooms and teachers for Visual Art, Performing Art, Physical Education and Italian. This breadth of curriculum is also supported with both science and humanities programs. Our philosophy is based around each student performing at their personal best in all areas of the curriculum including sport. We celebrate participation and reward excellence in all endeavours. We commit to maximising the learning growth of every child.

The school has long served the local community, first as a primary school, then as a “central” school with students from prep – year 8. In 2013 the school again became a primary school. The school leadership and staff enjoy deep support from our parents through an active and responsive School Council and Parent Association.
