Panton Hill Primary School is set in a semi-rural area, 32 kilometres north east of Melbourne. The student enrolment is currently 125 as of January 2019.

Situated in landscaped surrounds, the playground has a well balanced blend of active and passive recreation areas enhanced by landscaping, plantings and three adventure playgrounds.

We are a close-knit community school in which learning is a three-way partnership between students, parents and staff. We provide a range of learning experiences to help children develop their full potential, to encourage excellence, adapt to change and participate effectively in society.

Our Vision

Integral to our vision is a close working partnership between parents and staff, a safe and well-maintained working environment and a well balanced and challenging curriculum. Learn More >

Remote Learning – COVID 19


We will conducting lessons remotely as of the 20th of July 2020, following advice from the Victorian Government.  All of our students are working at home unless there is no other option available. We are using a combination of online and offline learning, using Webex and Google Classroom as our online platforms. For more information about our approach click PHPS Remote Learning.

During this period, all students will be learning from home, except for children who meet the criteria as set out by the Department of Education – this criteria can be seen on the onsite attendance application form. If parents are working from home, their children must be at home with them.

To aid in the organisation of staffing, all families who require onsite supervision must submit an onsite attendance application form. This must be submitted on the Thursday prior to the week requiring care.

The Department’s latest advice can be found at: www.education.vic.gov.au/coronavirus
