Principal's Message

Welcome students, families and staff to Carnegie Primary School for 2024. This year Carnegie Primary School has an enrolment this year of about 580 students in 25 classes.

It’s a privilege to be leading this great school. 

We have high levels of academic achievement and growth, great teachers and educational support staff, students from diverse backgrounds and an excellent reputation within the community.

Our staff CARE.

At Carnegie Primary School, we recognise and understand the diverse learning needs of each student. Our committed staff and dedicated parent community strive to provide a learning environment that focuses on both students’ learning and wellbeing. We greatly value our relationships with parents/carers and encourage you to become involved in our great school. Research indicates that when parents participate and engage with their child’s schooling, the long-term outcomes improve.

Students thrive at Carnegie PS. They are encouraged to take risks and actively engage in their learning through inquiry and curiosity. We know that curiosity drives questioning and the search for answers.

Our school motto, ‘Welcoming, Engaging, Achieving’ is all encompassing and represents who we are as a community.

Welcoming: Greeting in a polite and friendly way; accepting of all.

Engaging: Establishing meaningful connections to learning and others.

Achieving: Successfully reaching our desired results through effort, skill and courage - Trying our best no matter what!

Our overarching school value of RESPECT includes:

  • displaying good manners to all members of our community
  • caring for ourselves and others
  • caring for our shared environment
  • displaying understanding for the diversity in our community/world.


Our programs adhere to the prescribed curriculum for all government schools. Teachers differentiate the curriculum and personalise learning to meet the learning needs of our students. Specialist programs are offered in Physical Education, The Arts, Japanese and ICT in a range of learning spaces. Our state-of-the-art gymnasium, art room and music room look out on a wonderful sports oval and play area, featuring playground equipment, sandpits and ball courts that cater for all our students. 


If you would like to find out more about our great school, please call and make an appointment to come in and chat about the extensive learning opportunities we offer your child. I look forward to meeting with you soon.
