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 and a mainstream English 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.
In 2017 our school will turn 60!
Stay tuned for news about upcoming celebrations and fundraisers.
