Arthurs Creek Primary School is a small school located in the picturesque town of Arthurs Creek in the Nillumbik Shire of Victoria. Students who attend our school come from the town of Arthurs Creek and the neighbouring towns of Laurimar, Doreen, Whittlesea, Hurstbridge and surrounds. The majority of students are driven to school, with some who live close enough choosing to walk or ride their bikes.
Our school has an enrolment of 67 students who are organised into composite classrooms. In 2023, our students are arranged into four classrooms of a P/1, Year 1/2. Year 3/4 and a Year 4/5/6 class. Each of these classrooms has a low student to teacher ratio with our biggest class size at 18. In line with our inclusive approach the grades are names Gumnuts, Willow, Banksia and Wattle.
We are indeed a small school but offer a range of exciting opportunities for our students. Our school is the ideal setting for families who are seeking a school with a strong teaching and learning focus, a welcoming and inclusive setting and a place where the academic, social, emotional and physical wellbeing of our students is at the forefront of what we do. Our school has a broad and comprehensive curriculum that is adapted to suit the needs of our individual students.
Our students are able to join with their peers from neighbouring schools to participate in sports and other learning opportunities. Our school also provides activities that involve the local community in our programs to help broaden our student knowledge and contribute to a sense of community.
