Welcome to Ivanhoe Primary School

principal

I would like to extend a warm welcome to our school. My name is Mark Kent and I am the Principal of Ivanhoe Primary School.

Thank you for visiting our school’s webpage. I hope you find what you are looking for and gain some insights into our wonderful school community. Let us know if there is something you cannot find here and we will do our best to help you out.

Ivanhoe Primary School has provided the local community with a high quality education program for over 160 years. We value the assistance families can provide in ensuring our school continues to maintain the highest possible standard for each and every one of our students. A feature of the school is the strong home-school partnership which contributes to the high level of student achievement and ensures the provision of a quality educational program for our children.
We are fortunate to be part of a community which enthusiastically supports our school and we encourage activities which foster a sense of belonging in our local community and support for our local businesses.

Following advice from the Victorian Government as of the 15th April we have moved to remote and flexible learning.

This is a step all Victorian government schools are taking to help slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). This means that all students who can learn at home must learn from home. This is a very clear directive from the Victorian Government based on the advice of the Chief Health Officer.

We will continue to offer limited on-site learning for those students who need to access this, including for students on days when they are not able to be supervised at home and no other arrangements can be made.  We will provide further information about this shortly.

The Department’s latest advice on coronavirus can be found at https://www.education.vic.gov.au/coronavirus

It is important that we work together and support each other during this challenging time. 

Reminder, that 2021 enrolments are open.  To assist us with planning and staffing, please get your enrolments in as soon as possible for next year.

As Principal I am available to assist you with any questions you may have.

Once again, welcome to Ivanhoe Primary School.
