About Us

Mitcham Primary School has been established since 1888 and relocated to its present site on Mitcham Road, Mitcham in 1930.  The school’s tradition of educational excellence is complemented by attractively presented treed surroundings on an extensive site in Melbourne's outer eastern suburb of Mitcham.  Currently the school has a population of approximately 500 students who proudly wear the traditional colours of green and white. 

Mitcham Primary School strives for excellence.  It is a place where all students learn in a stimulating, happy and positive environment.  The staff is a professional, supportive team noted for its dedication, caring attitudes and the delivery of quality programs.  Our students are encouraged, through the school’s Behaviour Education Program, to develop self-regulation and become responsible members of the school community.  The school encourages a strong partnership between staff and parents. 

Mitcham Primary School promotes the development of active thinkers with communication and technology skills for the future.
