About Carlton Primary School

Carlton primary school, Melbourne | Victoria

In recent years almost $15 million has been spent on bringing to life the new Carlton Learning Precinct.

The school itself has undergone a significant and exciting transformation to bring it up to date with 21st century flexible learning spaces. Every classroom has an interactive touch screen CommBox, flexible furniture and large open spaces.

Carlton Primary School is passionate about student growth. Across each learning area we have a team of teachers, education support, and intervention staff to support students to grow their learning across all areas of the curriculum. We support students to know themselves as learners, and make use of date to make sure all students are doing their ‘Just Right’ learning.

The playground and outdoor learning spaces includes an award winning Covered Outdoor Learning Area (COLA) where students can play under shelter from the weather all year round! There is a water pump that uses recycled rain water so that students can add water to the giant sand pit, two playgrounds, a running track, oval and even a small dry creek bed and canoe! Our garden, as well as bush classroom, are used for outdoor learning so that students can feel connected to the environment around them.

The ground floor includes specialist facilities for subjects such as art, cooking and music. The new space offers a 98 place Kinder and long day care run by Gowrie, playgroups, and family services and maternal and child health operated by City of Melbourne, and community activities run by the partnership of Carlton Primary, City of Melbourne and Our Place Carlton.
