The little school house established in 1889 as Blackburn's first school is a landmark in the local community which it has served for over 110 years. The school has a tradition of excellence and today more than ever remains imbued with a strong sense of community. The School Council, teaching staff and parents work in partnership to provide programs and a learning environment which prepares students for success in the new millennium.
Recent extensive development of our buildings has provided excellent classroom facilities with state-of-the-art networked computer work stations and a large resource centre. Located in central Blackburn the school is well serviced by public transport and easily accessed by the large car park entrance from Surrey Rd. Before and After School Care programs operate daily providing quality low cost child care outside school hours.
The grounds are spacious and well equipped with play stations, a sports oval, netball and tennis courts and an amphitheatre for performing arts and assemblies. Our students have a tradition of sporting excellence and our facilities enable them to participate to the fullest extent in athletics and competition sports programs.
Steeped in history, Blackburn Primary School is one of the popular school in the Blackburn area. Our aim is clear and present in all aspects of the school. Respect, Compassion and Resilience are some of the qualities demonstrated towards the personal attributes we strive to gain and display in our community.
We endeavour to celebrate each other’s uniqueness by providing opportunity for all and to develop a culture that identifies that the journey towards excellence is often paved with trial and error, risk taking, learning from mistakes, flexibility and adaptability. We believe that encouraging students to take ownership of the learning is critical in achieving the best learning outcomes and that implicit in this concept is that students learn their own areas of strength and areas of development, through useful and explicit feedback.
