Welcome to Mitcham Primary School

Mitcham Primary is a warm and welcoming learning community which offers an outstanding level of learning for each and every child.

We believe that student wellbeing complements academic success and we incorporate our values of respect, resilience and responsibility into everyday school life. Our school offers a caring environment that enables children to grow and develop as individuals and as a part of a supportive, engaging community.

Our learning priorities have a strong emphasis on Literacy, Numeracy and STEM engagement and our teachers are committed to providing quality learning experiences that engage their students deeply whilst providing optimal intellectual stretch. The diversity of our school community is celebrated through our broad-ranging programmes, whilst each student is provided with the opportunity to actively and positively engage with the world around them.

I look forward to sharing our school with you during one of our Principal’s Tours. Tour dates for 2021 are 24/03/2021, 12/05/2021 and 1/09/2021. Tours run from 9:30am to 10:30am.
