Principal’s Message

Welcome to Wantirna South Primary School!

As you take the time to wander through our school by touring our website or in person at the school, I am sure you will agree that a sense of belonging and pride can be felt from your first step into our community.  It is rewarding to be principal of a committed community of staff, students and families who strive to do their best in all aspects of school life – academically, sporting, the Arts or community engagement.

As you explore our community, you will have a sense of the history, almost 80 years of collective voices working to support students with opportunities to grow and experience success in all personal endeavors.   Our community prides itself on building inquisitive learners who will flourish in a place where they can dream, discover and ‘learn for life’; emerging ready to be active participants of the 21st Century.

If you enjoyed your wander through our school on the website, I would warmly welcome your enquiry for a personal tour.

Look forward to meeting you soon.

Front Entrance


Wantirna South Primary School is surrounded by beautiful green spaces and is equipped with two large playgrounds.


The oval is a great play space for the children during recess and lunchtimes. It is also used during Phys Ed lessons and for Interschool sport activities.


Our classrooms are all different and provide a bright and stimulating environment for the children to work in.

With the completion of the BER we have open learning spaces that can transfer to smaller learning areas if needed.

Art & Music Centre

The Art/Music Centre was completed in 2002 and provides a focus for The Arts at Wantirna South PS.


This is our Library, a large open-plan space full of cozy nooks to sit and read, as well as places to work and play.  The library is open on each Tuesday lunchtime for children to come in, read, draw, play with Lego, or play chess.  We have a great selection of books to suit all ages.


Our courtyard becomes one of the busiest areas during recess and lunch as the children gather to play two square, eat lunch or sit and watch other play.

This wonderful space is often the centre of many special activities held throughout the year, activities including the Prep Family Picnic, the main area for community celebrations and outdoor classrooms.

The ‘Buzz’ Cafe

After the completion of the BER we have a wonderful cooking space for students and parents to enjoy. The children enjoy the canteen the operates on Friday for lunch orders, also Monday and Wednesday for special treats.

Our parent community like to gather for a cappuccino or latte while waiting for their children or after enjoying one of the entertaining assemblies held on Friday.
