2017 Prep Information Evening

Wednesday 18th May 7:00pm – In the Library (School Tour at 6:15pm)

Come and see what a great school and community Yarra Road is for your family to become a part of. We offer engaging and consistent programs across all curriculum areas and much, much more! Your child has the opportunity to experience many extra-curricular activities in the areas of performing arts and sporting excellence, or choose to join a variety of lunchtime clubs. Additional support in literacy, numeracy and student wellbeing is available for individuals and small groups, as well as being a part of all class programs.

A school tour is available at 6:15pm where you are able to view the different learning spaces across Yarra Road Primary. Following this will be a general presentation about the school, as well as what we can offer your child in their first year with us. At the end of the evening there will be time to speak to our 2016 Prep Teachers, Principal Kate Perkins and Assistant Principal Meriden James.

Yarra Road Primary School

Yarra Road Primary School’s motto ‘Enjoying the Road to Success’ underpins the planning and delivery of our curriculum programs. We strive to develop personal qualities in our students which reflect our school values: respect, responsibility, excellence, confidence and resilience.

We recognise the importance of developing the whole child and conduct programs which cater for the wide range of academic, cultural, physical and emotional needs and interests of our students.

Yarra Road Primary School is excited and proud to mark its 90th anniversary in 2015. Since 1925 the school has been a place where the community works together to support all children in their learning and social development.

The school has seen many physical changes over this time, expanding from the fifteen students that began in 1925 to our current enrolment of 360 pupils. Throughout the years we have watched with pride as our students have excelled in many fields and we welcome them back to visit the school to share their achievements and stories.
