School Profile

Eaglehawk Primary School is situated in the main business district of Eaglehawk and is part of the City of Greater Bendigo. The current enrolment is 130 students. The school has a proud heritage, making a strong contribution to education for over 150 years. Our school is committed to providing a safe, supportive learning environment to ensure all students reach their full potential, and is committed to improving student learning outcomes. With a strong focus on reading, writing and mathematics, all class sizes are below 20 to optimise student-learning opportunities. As a 'Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden' School for over 10 years, there is a specialist kitchen and established edible garden with all grades participating in weekly garden classes. Other specialist programs include Reading Recovery, Art, Music, Circus, Library, Physical Education, Choir and Chinese. Grade 6 students participate in the region's 'Passions and Pathways' Program - a partnership with local business and industries.  

High expectations around work and behaviour are part of the school culture. Calmer Classrooms, Berry Street, School Wide Positive Behaviour Supports and Respectful Relationships programs are used throughout the school to ensure all children are engaged and experience success in all aspects of the day. The school works hard to build and maintain relationships with families to support every students' education.

Significant renovations to the building over the last few years have created modern, flexible teaching and learning spaces. The redevelopment of the grounds to include an undercover multipurpose court area, a running track and new playground equipment provides students with many opportunities to be active during recess and lunch.

Our school vision: To provide a caring, supportive learning environment, which prepares all students to reach their full potential, continue learning and make positive contributions to the community.

The following Values are a part of all attitudes, behaviours and learning at Eaglehawk Primary School. Caring, Community, Honesty, Learning and Respect.
