Strathmore Primary School was established in 1944 to serve the education needs of the urban development to the north of Essendon. Located just eleven kilometres northwest of the city, this well established residential area is adjacent to the Tullamarine Freeway and is well served by public transport.
The present school population is approx. 515 students with an increasing number being drawn from outside the traditional catchment area. The backgrounds of students reflect a cultural and socio-economic diversity including a number of children from non-English speaking backgrounds. Parents generally have very high expectations of their children and of the school.
School facilities include an administration block and staffroom, twenty two classrooms, well-equipped specialist areas, a multi-purpose hall and a library incorporating a computer bank for research. All spaces are heated and air-conditioned.
Steeped in history, Strathmore Primary School is one of the popular school in the Strathmore 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.
