Our fully computerised Library is housed centrally.  Enhanced learning opportunities are promoted throughout the whole school social and academic development programs; “You Can Do It”, “Restorative Practices & Circle Time” and Wilson McCaskill’s “Play is the Way”.


The commitment of our staff enables us to provide a range of co-curriculum programs.  These include biannual school musical and art show, integrated camps and excursion F-6 program, Foundation to Level Six swimming classes, our Student Leadership Program from Levels 4 to 6, involvement in inter-school sports programs, Life Education, school choir and regular visits from professional sporting identities - AFL footballers, basketball, cricket and hockey to name a few.

School zones
For information about school zones and the current guidelines set by the Victorian State Government Department of Education, please refer to the following website: 

You can also enter your residential address at to find out whether Chelsea Heights Primary School is your child's Designated Neighbourhood School.  Please note that some school zones have changed as of the 2020 school year.  We welcome enrolment applications from families who reside outside of our designated school zone, however as per current legislation, children living within the zone must be given given priority.  Those outside the zone will be placed on a waiting list and will be advised in Term 3 if their application is successful.  We will accept as many 'out of zone' enrolments as we can, up to our projected intake capacity.

We look forward to welcoming your family to our school community.  We trust that it will be a rewarding and exciting time for you and your child.
