About our School
Laurimar Primary is now an established school in its 12th year. As students journey through our school, they gain more than just great education, they receive opportunities both within and beyond the classroom. Laurimar Primary School has a strong history, but our eyes are set firmly ahead: educating young people of character for a global future.
Our aim is to challenge students to be the very best they can be. Our role is to help every student reach their full potential through setting personal goals. The skills needed for the 21st century, which support a love of learning that goes beyond the classroom, are actively embraced by our school. A high emphasis is placed on the development of social/emotional learning of every child through a dedicated team.
Laurimar PS enjoys outstanding physical resources that enable us to provide students with the best possible educational opportunities and learning outcomes. The modern facilities and 21st Century teaching and learning pedagogy represent an exciting opportunity for students and parents, and have established the school’s strong culture, values and nature. The school is committed to Information and Communication Technologies with flexibility to allow access anywhere within the learning spaces.
The school is designed and built to incorporate the latest facilities for engaging students and comprises six buildings:
Fully equipped STEM Centre
Two Learning Centres
Fifteen double open plan relocatable classrooms
Arts Centre, (comprising Music and Visual Arts spaces)
Administration Centre, Staffroom and main Resource / Library Centre

Expansive outdoor recreation areas include a full size synthetic grass soccer / hockey pitch, playground equipment and asphalt play areas. Access to two adjoining well maintained sport / football ovals and landscaped grounds add to the aesthetic appeal of the school environment.
Laurimar Primary School is committed to the academic, social & emotional learning and personal growth of every student.
A focused curriculum, dedication to innovation and a culture of care from all staff will help us meet this commitment. Our school is well resourced in the Victorian curriculum. A balanced, engaging and comprehensive curriculum constantly challenges students to extend their learning and cater for all individual needs through CAFÉ Reading, VOICES Writing, SOUNDWAVES spelling and comprehensive numeracy pedagogy.
The school has achieved a great deal over the past decade, however, as a school community, we all look to a bright future with great optimism and excitement and constantly strive to take the learning to higher levels. Laurimar PS has a strong focus on excellence in Primary Education for all students and will constantly strive for ongoing improvement with our students.
