Victor Harbor Primary School

Welcome to Victor Harbor Primary School, where learning meets inspiration.

Welcome to the Victor Harbor Primary School website. We are thrilled to have you visit our website, your gateway to discovering the heart and soul of our school.

Victor Harbor Primary School is nestled in the breathtaking seaside city of Victor Harbor on the stunning Fleurieu Peninsula, where our school strives to be a beacon of educational excellence in this picturesque coastal community. Located just 80 km south of Adelaide, South Australia, Victor Harbor boasts a population of around 15,000 residents and serves as the largest population centre on the peninsula. Our city thrives on a diverse economy, rooted in agriculture, recreation, tourism, and various other industries.

Since 1874, Victor Harbor Primary School has been a cornerstone of public education in our town. In 1986, we relocated to our current site, where we continue to uphold our tradition of providing exceptional learning opportunities for students.

At Victor Harbor Primary School, we cater to the diverse needs of our students through specialised programs and support services tailored to different age groups and abilities. We nurture approximately 500 students, and our school caters for students from reception through to year 6. Many of whom have transitioned from Victor Harbor Kindergarten and will later move on to Victor Harbor High School. Additionally, we are committed to inclusivity and ensuring that every student has access to quality education. As part of this we are proud to have a Special Education Unit as part of our school and are dedicated to supporting and providing specialised support and resources to students with moderate to severe disabilities. Through individualized education plans and a team of dedicated staff, we empower these students to reach their full potential and participate fully in school life.

Our students are also deeply connected to the unique local environment, actively participating in sustainability and environmental programs, community projects, and reconciliation efforts. Our educational philosophy revolves around supporting individuals to reach their full potential. To this end, we offer a robust specialist learning program that allows children to explore their passions and strengths in various fields, including Indonesian language, Performing Arts, Digital and Design Technologies (STEAM), and Physical Education.

Beyond the classroom, Victor Harbor Primary School boasts a rich array of extracurricular activities, including participation in SAPSASA events, school musical productions, instrumental music, choir, camps, and lunchtime clubs. These opportunities enrich our students’ primary schooling experience and foster their holistic development.

At the heart of everything we do is our commitment to building meaningful relationships for learning. We believe that strong connections between students, teachers, families, and the broader community are essential for creating a supportive and inclusive educational environment where every child can thrive.

Welcome to Victor Harbor Primary School, where learning meets inspiration, and every student’s potential is nurtured and celebrated.
