Message from the Principal 


On behalf of the staff and school council, I would like to extend a warm welcome to all community members of Blackburn Lake Primary School (BLPS). 


I am extremely proud and honoured to be the Principal of this wonderful school and cherish the opportunity to continue to assist in the development of our most precious resource - our children. 

Situated next to the beautiful Blackburn Lake Sanctuary, the school’s grounds are nestled in a quiet streetscape away from major roads. The school's natural environment reflects a country feel, a tree-lined retreat from the hustle and bustle of Eastern Metropolitan Melbourne.


We are a school that places high importance on developing a sense of community. Many opportunities exist for students, parents, friends, families and community members to participate in a wide range of curricular and extracurricular programs and events.   


BLPS has a current enrolment of 552 students with 24 classes. Most classes are straight classes; however, student cohort numbers at times necessitate the creation of multi-age classes, e.g. ½, ¾. In 2024 we have 3 multi-age classes.  


At BLPS, each student is valued and encouraged to reach their full potential. Students have a range of opportunities to develop their skills and knowledge in areas of interest through carefully planned and innovative programs.

Our school motto "Learning Together", acknowledges the importance of:


  • Creating strong partnerships between home and school
  • Incorporating student voice and agency into learning
  • Delivering sequentially planned, engaging curriculum
  • Providing differentiated learning opportunities
  • Fostering safe and supportive learning environments
  • Establishing clear learning and behavioural expectations
  • Using technology as a tool to enhance learning
  • Communicating well


Our tiered approach, to student well-being, helps to create a sense of connectedness, care and belonging and provides a platform for students to achieve outstanding academic results.


Blackburn Lake Primary School staff are enthusiastic highly professional educators and bring a wealth of knowledge and commitment to their crucial task of guiding students towards a fulfilling and productive seven years of primary education.


As Principal, my door is always open to parents wishing to discuss anything at all related to the school.
