About Carlton Primary School
Located at the corner of Drummond and Palmerston streets, Carlton Primary is a community focused school, with a relaxed, friendly, welcoming atmosphere. We take pride in being a multicultural school, learning from each other, as well as from our teachers. The whole family is welcome at Carlton Primary, and we encourage parents’ participation in classrooms, on school council, and as part of special events and excursions. We work closely with our local community to foster community links, creating the best opportunities for our students. Local community organisations are frequently involved in events at the school, such as tree planting days, the harvest festival and Harmony Day.
Our school values are:
Reflecting the value we place on building strong, trusting relationships, our guiding principle is "At Carlton Primary School we pride ourselves on being a caring school which strives to meet the needs of all students through a rich and engaging curriculum."
