Monash Primary School

An ACT Public School

Touch the earth, reach the sky, challenge the future

Principal's Message

Dear families and community members,

Monash School was established in 1982 and has a long held reputation as a community school with a strong focus on inclusion and quality teaching. At Monash learning takes place in an engaging environment which encourages our students to enact our motto ‘touch the earth, reach the sky and challenge the future’.

  • Touch the Earth - We aim to foster children to be culturally aware and environmentally conscious. This is supported through our Kitchen Garden program and focus on sustainability.
  • Reach the Sky - We believe every student can learn at high levels with personalised learning goals in key curriculum areas.
  • Challenge the Future - We are a hub for 21st Century education in which students learn skills that will support them in being successful beyond school.

At Monash School we set high expectations for all children in their academic learning and staff are supported with ongoing professional learning to support the implementation of evidence-based practices. Our daily teaching and learning programs are complemented by our Japanese, Physical Education, STEM and Sustainability programs which support students to create and take responsibility for the future.

At Monash we highly value home/school partnerships and the support of families in the school through their involvement in classrooms, carnivals, assemblies, excursions, parent workshops, P&C and School Board.  We are also part of the Tuggeranong network of schools and work together with all the public schools ensuring connected transitions for every student. In particular we work closely with the Isabella Plains Early Childhood School and Wanniassa School.

We welcome anyone who is interested in enrolling a child at Monash School to arrange a time to visit by contacting the school on (02) 6142 1660. We look forward to being an active part of  your child's learning journey and welcome your involvement and contribution to our school community.
