Our mission is to provide an education that enables all students to achieve full potential in a safe and caring environment.
We work hard to equip our students with the skills they will need for a successful transition to secondary school and to become competent global citizens.
Malvern Primary School is proud to be a fully accredited member of the Council of International Schools.
Learning and teaching is our core business with a strong emphasis on literacy and numeracy skills. This rigorous program is supported by a diverse specialist teaching program that includes Music, Physical Education, Visual Arts, Sport, Drama, Italian, Mandarin, eLearning and Library. We also provide support and extension programs for students at all grade levels.
Malvern Primary School has played an important role in the life of our local community since 1884. Parent participation is valued and encouraged. Parents can be involved in a wide range of activities including membership of the School Council and its sub-committees, the Parents Association, classroom support, sport, camps, excursions, uniform shop, working bees, fundraising and family social events. Parents and the wider community have raised substantial funds which have allowed the school to acquire first class teaching resources.
I encourage you to learn more about our outstanding school by exploring this website or by paying us a visit.
Our school newsletter is published each Wednesday and distributed via Compass. Spare copies are available from the school office, as well as electronically – to find out more here.

Local Enrolments Children living within this area have a RIGHT OF ENROLMENT at the school and must be accommodated. Pressures on accommodation in recent years have been such that few, if any, children have been able to be accommodated from outside this area at Prep level. The situation may vary a little at other grade levels.
Enrolments are sought as soon as possible and at the latest by the end of Term 2 to assist in planning for the year.
Prospective International Enrolments – Malvern Primary School welcomes International Students. Please visit the DET International Students webpage to find out more about what’s offered, the process and requirements.
Due to building works at the school that are nearing completion, school tours will not be held until early Term 2.
When school tours recommence they will, mostly, be held on Thursday morning commencing at 9.30 am. Parents are asked to gather near the office on arrival.
Each tour takes approximately one and a half hours. A tour provides an opportunity to see the school in operation and to ask questions.
This year’s tour dates will be confirmed shortly near the end of Term 1.
