Benvenuti! Welcome to Yarralumla Primary School

Yarralumla Primary is a small, community English-Italian bilingual school located on the southern shores of Canberra's Lake Burley Griffin. Its focus is on developing the whole child through personalised learning in a language rich and inclusive environment.

Our school is a neighbourhood school catering for children from the ages of 3 to 12 as well as out-of-area children from families committed to the bilingual program. There is a sizeable proportion of children from overseas embassies located in Yarralumla and other families on postings.

Yarralumla Primary has built an enviable reputation for delivering a wide variety of specialist educational programs that include not only its English-Italian bilingual program but also special education programs in its Junior and Senior Autism units, a Cycle 1 Montessori curriculum, and a curriculum focus on The Arts and sustainability. All parents are encouraged to participate in our diverse, vibrant and energetic community as partners in our students' learning.
