Newhaven Primary School is situated on the South Eastern coast of Phillip Island, located in the fishing village of Newhaven. The first township encountered as you cross the bridge from the mainland town of San Remo, Newhaven offers a peaceful and picturesque location for our school.
Newhaven Primary School is a Victorian Government (Prep to Grade 6) School, established in 1892. The school was completely rebuilt in 2000, and we enjoy excellent facilities, including a small hall, a large hall, seven classrooms, an Science/Art Room, Library and Administration buildings, as well as access to our own small oval, and neighbouring Newhaven Reserve. Children are provided with two playgrounds, a Covered Outdoor Learning Space, and we also boast a Bike Education Course, a walking track with exercise stations around our oval, and a bike shed.
We take enrolments for the following year at any time, and appreciate receipt of enrolment forms for Prep by September of the year prior to commencement.
Newhaven Primary School is proud of its achievements in student learning
In 2021 we have 125 students across six classrooms, comprising a straight Prep class, a straight Grade 1, a Grade 2/3, a Grade 3/4, a Grade 4/5 and a Grade 5/6. This distribution of classes is reviewed each year to provide the best make up according to enrolments.
Our teachers are fully qualified primary educators with training in Australia’s leading program for Early Years literacy and numeracy. This program continues through to Grade 4. Continuity is assured and statewide testing will provide you with information as to your child’s performance compared to other children in the state. The middle years literacy and numeracy programs commence in Grade 5 to prepare your child for secondary college.
Early intervention programs in reading and mathematics support students with learning difficulties.
Co Curricula Programs
These programs significantly add to the memories that children retain when they look back on their primary years.
Student Participation & Leadership
We have a number of programs that allow children to develop a sense of community responsibility.
Ensuring your child is happy and safe at school is important to parents, students and our staff.
