About Preshil Primary School

Early childhood is a time for powerful experiences that forever fuel the imagination of the scientist, artist, author, philosopher, and builder — experiences that children carry into their future as a core of inspiration, confidence and creativity. 

Specialist programs of philosophy, French, art, music and physical education complement the core curriculum of trans-disciplinary, inquiry-based projects, targeting the fundamentals of literacy and numeracy. These, together with an extensive and challenging electives program, nourish and enhance children’s personal and academic development. 

Our primary school curriculum is underpinned by high expectations for every child; inspiring and encouraging them while respecting difference and individuality. Both personal and collaborative projects promote creativity and imaginative thinking, and there is time allocated for uninterrupted play. 

As a candidate school* for the International Baccalaureate’s Primary Years Programme, Preshil students are equipped to transition seamlessly into the Middle Years and Diploma Programmes offered at our secondary school.
