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.
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 have transitioned to remote learning for Term Two of 2020. 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 on days when they are not able to be supervised at home and no other arrangements can be made. If parents are working from home, their children must be at home with them.
To aid in the organisation fo staffing, all families who require onsite supervision must submit an on-site-attendance-form. This must be submitted on the Thursday prior to the week requiring care.
Following advice from the Victorian Government on Tuesday 12 May, some students will be returning to school from Tuesday 26 May.
The Victorian Chief Health Officer has advised that it is safe for Victorian school students and teachers to return to on-site schooling in a two-staged approach:
- Stage 1 – from Tuesday 26 May
Early years students (Prep to Grade 2) . All staff will attend on-site.
- Stage 2 – from Tuesday 9 June
Grade 3 to Year 6 students will return to on-site schooling, subject to health advice.
