On behalf of the staff and School Council I would like to thank you for taking an interest in our school. We want our new families to have a long and happy association with the Elwood Primary School community.
Elwood Primary School prides itself in nurturing the social, emotional and academic needs of all students. We believe that these needs are best met when the educational partnership between the parents, the students and the school is truly valued.
Located in Scott Street Elwood and established in 1917, Elwood Primary School is in a period of growth with a present population of 800 students. High value is placed on our interaction with the broader community and this is reflected in school programs.
