Many Languages – One Voice
Welcome to Richmond West Primary School. Our school is located in the densely populated inner eastern suburb of Richmond on the fringe of the Melbourne Central Business District. We are proud of our well-established bilingual programs that support and encourage children in the development of Chinese, Vietnamese and English, as first and second languages. Our school is unique in that this most successful bilingual immersion program, conceived early in the school’s establishment, is now regarded as a rare model attracting interest from diverse stakeholders across the educational sector at state, national and international levels.
Our vision at Richmond West Primary School is to value language within a community of practice where students become life-long learners that are literate, numerate and curious. We strive to develop articulate, socially responsible and resilient individuals who are working towards achieving their full potential as global citizens.
I look forward to meeting you in person soon.
Principal, Richmond West Primary School
