Return to On-Site School
Thank you for all your support during these past few weeks of remote and flexible learning.
Following advice from the Chief Health Officer, the Victorian Government has advised that schools can begin a phased return to on-site schooling.
To support all school staff to prepare for this transition, Monday 25 May will be a pupil-free day.
In the first stage, students in Prep, Grade 1 and Grade 2 will return to school from Tuesday 26 May.
In the second stage of our return to on-site schooling, all other year levels will return to school from Tuesday 9 June.
More information about the return to school and coronavirus (COVID-19) can be found on the Department’s website, which will continue to be updated:
Thank you for your continued support and patience during this time. We look forward to welcoming our students back to the classroom!
Term 2 Remote Learning
Following advice from the Victorian Government, Mentone Park Primary School will be moving to remote and flexible learning for Term 2. This is a step all Victorian Government schools are taking to help slow the spread of Covid-19. This means that all students that can learn at home, must work from home.

WELCOME TO 2020
Welcome to 2020 where the first few weeks of school have been extremely engaging for students, families and staff with Cultural Days, Swimming Carnivals, Information Evenings and “Get to Know You” Interviews, just some of the great happenings at Mentone Park Primary School.
Our students were immersed in Aboriginal culture through the incursion program presented by Western Creation, which included facepainting and traditional Aboriginal art, dance and storytelling. Thanks to all students for their wonderful participation and willingness to be involved and engaged in these important lessons about Australian history and culture.
OUR 2019 GRADUATES
Congratulations to our 2019 Grade 6 Graduates! We wish them all the best as they embark on their Secondary School education.
Our 2020 Marine Ambassadors were inducted into the program with a boat ride to look for dolphins 🐬 and do some snorkeling. No dolphins unfortunately but plenty of seals, fish and even some sea dragons! A wonderful opportunity for these students to enhance their understanding of the marine environment.
KINGSTON COLOUR RUN
Our 2019 Kingston Community Colour Run was an HUGE success! We had around 800 people attend and it was truly wonderful to see our school and the broader community come together for such a fun morning! With wonderful feedback from both those outside and within our school community we can’t wait to do it again next year! A huge thank you to every single person who came along, and to all those who helped in the lead up to the day and who were instrumental in supporting the event on the day. The event simply would not have been the success it was without the involvement and support of our fantastic Mentone Park community! With an incredible $17,000 raised this will go towards resurfacing the basketball and netball courts and will be an amazing enhancement to our school.
OUTSTANDING STUDENT LEARNING RESULTS!
Congratulations to our Year 3 and 5 students for their wonderful NAPLAN results this year. Not only were our individual results the best we have seen in years but also our growth data was some of the best in the state.
All students at Mentone Park Primary School are given every opportunity to grow with the guidance and support of our wonderful staff and supportive culture of excellence. Come and see for yourself why our students are achieving such great results.
