Orange Grove Primary School (5364)



School Overview



Orange Grove Primary School is a small Independent Public School with a long and proud history of providing quality education to our students.

While tradition is an important part of our culture, our focus is on preparing children for the future.

Our school caters for up to 130 children from Kindergarten to Year 6 and has a strong ethos of being a warm, caring and friendly community where every child is treated as a valued individual as guided by our motto of 'Friendship and Achievement'.

Orange Grove's reputation for inclusivity, quality educational programmes, use of technology, and unique environment attracts students from a variety of areas.

Our positive and challenging teaching programs allow all students to develop necessary knowledge and skills to become confident, independent learners.

We are proud of our reputation in offering a diverse range of subjects. Our specialist teachers educate students in music (Years 3 to 6 choir, percussion instruments, ukulele), instrumental music in guitar (through the School of Instrumental Music), visual art, African drumming, Italian and physical education. Our school has a strong focus on literacy, numeracy and science.

The parent-funded 1-1 iPad program for Years 3 to 6 and school funded iPads for Kindergarten to Year 2 gives our students access to cutting edge technology to challenge them academically and stretch their imaginations.

The school has a new purpose-built Centre for Design and Technology to provide students with the opportunity to experiment and explore. A classroom is also being refurbished as a science laboratory for students to study science in an authentic environment.

Our educators are very professional and have a strong sense of pastoral care, engage in all educational initiatives, work closely with each other and parents aiming to provide programs which meet individual needs and produce results that are very positive.

The sense of community that exists between parents, staff and students is an integral part of Orange Grove and a source of pride for all. A strong community support has been a feature of this school and the community has worked actively towards providing additional resources for the school.
