About Us

Newhaven Primary School is proud of its achievements in student learning.

Welcome to Newhaven Primary School

Welcome to Newhaven Primary School. Our school is located in the fishing village of Newhaven on Phillip Island, the first township encountered as you cross the bridge onto Phillip Island and welcomes students from the local areas of Newhaven, Cape Woolamai and as far as Sunderland Bay.

Newhaven offers a peaceful and picturesque location for our warm and welcoming government primary school. It was established in 1892 and was completely rebuilt in 2000 and we enjoy excellent facilities.

At Newhaven Primary School we believe that staff, parents and children should work together as a team.  Therefore we encourage your involvement with the school, your interest and participation in your children’s education.

Students are given the opportunity to learn to the best of their ability and to develop and extend their skills and knowledge.  They are encouraged to operate effectively as individuals and as part of a group, developing tolerance and respect for others and our school environment, while growing in independence, resilience, confidence and self-esteem.

The contribution of a positive, interested and supportive community which includes children, staff, parents and all who interact with the school, is recognised and valued.

We explicitly developed our school values of Respect, Responsibility and Challenging Ourselves to meet the needs of an ever changing world.

Newhaven Primary School is currently accepting enrolments for next year. If you are interested in enrolling, please contact the school to organise a time to come and meet our Principal and take a tour of our spacious facilities. 

We acknowledge the traditional owners of this land, the Bunurong people, and pay our collective respects to their elders past, present and emerging. We also pay our continued respects to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people living in our community today.
