Thomastown Primary School was founded in 1855 and is located in Melbourne’s northern suburbs. It was the first school to be built in the Thomastown region and has since cemented itself in the core of Thomastown’s multicultural heritage.



The school’s vision is to prepare students to become active, thoughtful, and responsible citizens of the local and global community. Its mission is to embrace diversity so that all students are challenged to achieve their best through partnership between teachers, families, and the community.


Thomastown Primary School’s objective is to provide a respectful learning environment. The school’s commitment is to build trust, promote self-esteem and ignite passion, where every individual feels valued and respected, and richness of cultural and ethnic diversity is celebrated. Thomastown aims to empower students to build solid foundations for the future by participating in social, intellectual, sporting and cultural activities. This is presented through the school values – Respect, Responsibility, and Effort, which is displayed throughout the school to remind staff and students about the values they uphold during their time at Thomastown Primary School.
