A Message from our Principal

Welcome to Ivanhoe East Primary School where our students are placed at the centre of everything we do. We support all of our students to learn and thrive through a whole school approach to wellbeing, numeracy and literacy. This is underpinned by our commitment to providing authentic opportunities for students to be empowered and have greater agency within the learning process.
This includes clear planning processes that activate student voice, feedback, individual goal setting practices and the co-construction of learning rubrics and ‘I Can’ statements so that students know what they need to do to achieve their next step in learning. 

Students also participate in a strong Specialist program for Physical Education, Art, Music and Mandarin.

Our highly professional teaching teams are integral to the success of our learning program. They work together to plan the learning program so that it is responsive to the needs of their students. They provide opportunities for students to collaborate with each other within and across classrooms. This allows teaching to be targeted to the needs of individual students and for students to make meaningful connections and friendships with their peers.

Our school is organised into three sub-schools:


Prep and Year 1


Year 2 and 3


Year 4, 5 and 6

This organisation reflects the different needs of students at each of these developmental stages.

We work in partnership with families so that we can provide the best opportunities for students. There are numerous opportunities for parental involvement and we encourage you to become actively engaged in the life of our school.  We look forward to welcoming you and your family to our school.

This school is located on the land of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. 
We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land and pay our respects to the Elders,
past, present and emerging. We recognise, acknowledge and respect the history, culture,
diversity and value of all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islands people.
