From the Principal

At Dalkeith Primary School we celebrate our proud history and reputation for excellence as an Independent Public School.  Dalkeith Primary is governed by a School Board consisting of parents, school staff and members of the local community. This ensures the school has greater autonomy and flexibility in making decisions locally and in response to the educational needs of our students.
Dalkeith Primary School is a dynamic learning community where stakeholders work collaboratively through a shared mission statement to provide an exemplary environment where children can achieve their personal excellence.  With an increasingly diverse student population, a real family atmosphere can be found within our grounds and every morning on our beautiful verandah.
Dalkeith Primary School provides a supportive and well structured environment in which the teaching and learning process thrives. A clear mission statement, explicit teaching strategies and shared leadership drive the education and pedagogy at Dalkeith. In addition, the wide range of specialist programs offered at Dalkeith offers students a full curriculum, inclusive of their individual abilities and interests. A focus on cooperative learning further develops responsible and resilient learners and promotes a culture of leadership and a sense of belonging.
Dalkeith Primary School is a high achieving school with a dedicated and highly skilled staff that are focused on the whole child.  Our success is a result of the combined vibrant energies and contributions of students, staff, parents and community and is a tribute to the fact that Dalkeith is an exemplary public school and a school where we can always be celebrating success!
