Maldon (Population 1,500) is located 135km northwest of Melbourne in the heart of the Victorian Goldfields. The town is nestled on the slopes of Mt. Tarrangower in an agricultural, pastoral and mining district. It is a town steeped in history. It once had quartz reefs that were among the world’s richest, attracting a population which built grand houses and a very busy commercial centre.

Maldon has retained an authentic pioneer-like appearance with history of the gold-mining era being preserved. The National Trust declared it Australia’s first Notable Town in 1966, stating Maldon to have “the most intact historic streetscape in Victoria”.

Maldon Primary School is a school where every child is supported in an environment which enables them to grow and develop the skills, knowledge and behaviours needed for a rich and vibrant life.  It is an environment where every child can shine and work towards reaching their full potential and beyond.

Whole school planning ensures teachers deliver a consistent curriculum based on a child-centred approach. We try to ensure that the programs we provide seek to develop the whole child. For optimum learning to occur students need to develop confidence and self esteem. This results from high quality relationships between pupils and teachers and a genuine partnership between parents and the school.

Maldon Primary School has excellent partnerships with our parent body and is also a strong partner of the wider Maldon community.
