It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Altona Meadows Primary School and our website.
We aim to keep the website updated with current information about the events happening around
the school. We would appreciate any feedback from you about what you would like included on the
website. Communication with our families is via Compass and we have a fortnightly Newsletter that
showcases the learning at various levels.
Our curriculum has an emphasis on literacy and numeracy skills and improving analytical thinking
skills for all students. We also strive to support students to develop social relationships and personal skills that assist them to participate successfully both in school and the broader community. We provide additional programs including Indonesian, Performing Arts (Music & Drama), Visual Arts and Physical Education.
Our teachers work in professional learning teams to plan and continually improve the curriculum, reflect on their teaching practice, share information and co-operatively develop high quality activities and welfare programs for all students.
Altona Meadows Primary School has three core school values:
Striving for Excellence
Altona Meadows Primary School is in the Hobsons Bay network in the South Western Region of Melbourne. We have a current school population of approximately 345 students. Our students come from diverse multicultural and socio-economic backgrounds. We have modern buildings and several portable buildings that house 22 classrooms providing excellent facilities for teaching and learning.
In 2021 the school is going through the process of advertising for a substantive Principal so I am the Acting principal for term 1.
Please feel free to contact the school if you would like a school tour or you would like to be provided with further information about any aspect of our school programs.
