Welcome to Melville Primary

Our Purpose

To provide an inclusive, stimulating and collaborative learning environment that nurtures students to achieve their potential.

Principal’s Message

Welcome, Melville Primary school is a vibrant community of dedicated staff, supportive parents and enthusiastic students who are bound together in an inclusive and sustainable environment.

We strive to deliver evidenced based, high quality teaching practices that ensure that every student, every day can succeed. We believe that building staff capacity and being a part of a high performing team is the cornerstone of school improvement. 

We expect excellent progress and achievement and responsible behaviour through our ‘You can do it’ values. We support and develop our students through every developmental domain, prioritising mental health and wellbeing for each student to thrive as part of their school and wider community.

Our vision is to become a school of excellence and to empower students to reach their potential. We strive for our students to find purpose and passion for the things they love, to help them face life's challenges, to successfully contribute to society and to nurture and protect the environment that they live in.

With strong School Board governance and an outstanding P&C including our MOMPS (Men of Melville Primary School) group we work closely with our parent community, and they provide us with opportunities to enrich the lives of students in our care. We value productive working relationships  with outside agencies, Universities and our Riverside Network of schools.
