Principal's Message

I extend a warm welcome to all our families and members of the Castlemaine community. Our school has a long tradition of providing quality education for the families of the Castlemaine community. In 1855 our students commenced their education in a crowded classroom on a dirt floor and under a canvas roof. By 1875, the current brick building was constructed and it is under this very same roof we continue to serve the Castlemaine community and grow a dynamic and vibrant school community.
We are proud of our school and the great learning experiences and opportunities we offer our students. Our school is committed to providing a quality education for all students that develops the whole child. Our school values underpin all that we do in a supportive and caring environment.
Our vision is to develop, in partnership with the school community, a respectful, responsible, learning community. A school that prepares our students for the challenges of the 21st century. Our learning community is founded on an educational belief that all students can learn and all students have the right to become effective learners. A strong partnership between staff, the students and parents is important to realise this vision.
We look forward to guiding and sharing your child’s learning journey and welcome your involvement and contribution to our school community.
Warm regards

Peter Mcconell
