We are delighted to have you join our vibrant school community. We pride ourselves on our commitment to developing the whole child with a focus on student learning.

Other important information to note:

  • Our 2023 Preps are welcome to wear casual clothes. All other resources will be provided on the day.

  • When arriving at Brighton Primary School, parents should observe the parking restrictions along the shcool boundary at Male and Wilson Streets
