Message from the Principal

Alphington is a vibrant and progressive school community that encourages positive, engaging connections between all members. At the core of everything we do are the relationships we build with each other, connecting both the head and the heart. Your child is far more than just a number to us. They are an individual with a developing sense of self, seeking to be challenged and engaged in their learning journey.

Our focus is on delivering a broad curriculum for our students and providing them with the appropriate skills and attributes to ensure their success. At Alphington, we provide our students with opportunities that will prepare them for the changing nature of life, learning and work. We ignite within our students the passion for knowledge and the desire to learn. Our students leave with the skills they need to thrive and succeed in a world beyond school.

We are not simply in the job of educating children. We are committed to preparing future adults who excel in their chosen path and can navigate the world they encounter with purpose, creativity, integrity, respect, and compassion.
