Ormond School Profile 2020
Ormond Primary School was founded in 1891 and is committed to providing a nurturing and stimulating environment which allows all children to be challenged, guided and engaged in their learning. As a learning community, Ormond Primary School aspires for all children to develop a love of learning and to value lifelong skills and knowledge.
Ormond Primary School is a school of approximately 420 students located in the suburb of Ormond in the Southern Metropolitan Region. The school is housed in attractive and well maintained grounds and buildings. The school’s excellent facilities include the original 1916 ground floor brick building and the double-storey 1927 Building which includes well-resourced and maintained classrooms, staff room, first aid, reception and office facilities. In 2020 this building is undergoing some major internal refurbishments including the instalation of a lift. The 2000 Building, which has also undergone a refurbishment in 2020 comprises a large multi- purpose hall and assembly area, an Art room, four flexible classroom spaces as well as the addition of a STEAM room due for completion mid 2020. The 2011 Building comprises a modern Library, Performing Arts area, Multimedia Studio on the ground floor and four flexible classroom spaces, atrium and wet area on the first floor. Four portable classrooms also accommodate class groups.
The establishment and maintenance of a school neighbourhood boundary has enabled the school to better manage enrolments. As a consequence the enrolment levels are anticipated to remain in the range of 400 – 475 students over the foreseeable future.
The school has an effective full time staff of thirty-five people. Staffing includes a principal and an assistant principal and a well-balanced staff profile comprised of one leading teacher and a range of expert, accomplished and graduate teachers. In addition, educational support staff members contribute effectively to provide an excellent learning program. Educational support staff includes one full-time business manager and a full-time assistant in the office as well as five integration aides who work with a small number of children across the school. The Library is managed by a part-time assistant and parent volunteers and Korean is taught by a part-time cultural aide. The Multimedia program is conducted by a multimedia technician. An Out of School Hours program is staffed by a manager and four assistants.
The school is organised into teaching teams which are based on the Victorian Curriculum standards. There is an extensive specialist teaching program covering Physical Education, Korean Language, Visual Arts and Performing Arts.
Ormond Primary Schools continue to be an active member of the Stonnington and Glen Eira (SaGE) Network of Schools.
