Carrum Primary School is situated on the southern most border of the City of Kingston, where the Patterson River meets Port Phillip Bay. The school was founded in 1901 and has a current enrolment of 320 students. The school is proud of its self-sufficient farmlet/environmental centre and has a country like atmosphere within a city environment.
Carrum Primary School strives for excellence through a genuine partnership and openness between staff and the school community by providing a safe, happy, friendly and challenging environment, ideal for learning. A comprehensive and balanced curriculum, with the main emphasis on the development of literacy and numeracy, is taught by a team of dedicated, experienced and caring teachers, in an open and friendly style.
In 2019, the school has fifteen classes as well as specialist classes in the Arts, PE and German. We foster self-esteem, by facilitating the development of each child as an individual. We encourage students to take an active role in becoming responsible for their own learning. We develop the skills, values and attitudes that will provide children with a framework for making positive contributions to their community.
