Our facilities

Elizabeth Grove Primary School opened in 1960, just after Elizabeth Grove Infant School opened on the same site in 1959. In the early 1970s, an open space unit was built to house four very large classes of grade five and six students.

In the late 1990s, Elizabeth Grove Junior Primary School and Elizabeth Grove Primary School joined under one name. In the mid-2000s, the Elizabeth Grove Children’s Centre (formerly Elizabeth Grove Kindergarten) moved to the school site and became known as the Elizabeth Grove Community Campus from 2005.

In December 2010, the gym and covered outdoor learning areas opened during our 50th anniversary celebrations. With a future focus on research, innovation, and a shared vision, further improvements are planned at Elizabeth Grove Primary School to support student learning.
