Principal’s Message

Welcome! We extend a warm welcome to your family and hope you will form a close and rewarding association with our school.

Warm greetings to you, and I thank you for taking an interest in Belle Vue Primary School for your child. Belle Vue Primary School is a small school with a big heart, situated in Balwyn North with spacious, well-maintained grounds, and well-equipped facilities. Belle Vue Primary School has been providing high quality education for over 60 years and we have some exciting changes in the years ahead, that we would love you to be part of. We believe that every child has the right and capacity to learn and succeed. Belle Vue Primary School consistently achieves exceptional academic results, whilst ensuring to meet the wellbeing needs of all our students.

My priority as principal is to ensure our students are supported and encouraged to achieve their very best.  One of the key enablers of improving student health, wellbeing and learning outcomes is through a sustained and strong Home-School Partnership. At Belle Vue Primary School, we take pride in a strong culture of community support and engagement, which fosters partnerships between students, staff, parents and the local community. We believe it is vital to build links with our community and know our students and their families.

We pride ourselves on offering a successful pre-school to primary school transition program. We understand that starting Prep is an important step for your family and we have programs in place to ensure a smooth and successful transition. We are committed to working with you to ensure a positive start to your child’s primary education.

Our guiding principle is to provide a stimulating and supportive environment, with engaging and challenging educational programs beyond the basic curriculum and we are proud to provide a learning environment that promotes student voice and agency. Our comprehensive literacy and numeracy curriculum are complimented by learning in Italian, Visual and Performing arts, Physical Education and our Robotics/Coding programs.

Belle Vue Primary School is a fantastic school and what makes this such a fantastic school are the students, teachers and parents . I am both honoured and proud to be the principal of Belle Vue. We are fortunate to have a highly committed and experienced teaching team, supported by an active and involved school community. Belle Vue is a great place to learn and grow.

I welcome the opportunity to show what Belle Vue has to offer you and your child, and I extend an invitation to all parents/carers considering a quality educational environment for their child to contact the school to arrange a personalised school tour. 

During these tours, you will have the opportunity to visit our classrooms, to get a feel for our school and see our school in action. You will also meet me, Andrew Wood, the school principal. I will  be able to answer any questions you may have about our school. I look forward to meeting you soon.

Furthermore, we will be providing several Open Afternoons as an opportunity to pop and visit Belle Vue, and get a feel for the school. You do not need to book in, simply arrive at the day and time of your choosing from below.
