We have a comprehensive outdoor education program including school camps for Grades 3 and 4, alternating between Golden Valleys Lodge and Waratah Bay; Grade 5 at Camp Coonawarra; and Grade 6 to Wilson’s Promontory.



 International Exchange Program


Belgrave South Primary School students have shared an exchange program with the Takapuna Intermediate Normal School in New Zealand for 20 years. In 2014 as part of the new Australian Curriculum we began a new relationship with Mito Eiko Elemantary School in Japan. Read about this years exchange here.

The exchange program allows for unique opportunities to learn about the Maori culture


Students gain first hand cultural awareness through their time away and often make strong bonds with their exchange families.

Performing Arts


Students at Belgrave South Primary School take a fun weekly Performing Arts class with Mrs Mizzi.  In addition to these classes, our children are provided with a variety of performing arts opportunities.

Students learn the significance of performing to real audiences


These include our impressive Grade 6 annual school productions, a State School Spectacular team, Level 2 and 3 participation in Musical in a Day, lunch time Dance & Drama groups and our school junior and senior choirs.
Our whole school assembly is also a place where we celebrate the performing arts through whole school singing.  



Leadership Opportunities  

 Throughout their time at Belgrave South Primary School, our students are taught to value and apply the Keys to Success;  Getting Along, Persistence, Organisation and Confidence.

Our senior students practise these skills through leadership positions such as School and Vice Captains, Literacy and Numeracy Captains, House Captains, Library and Office Assistants.

From Grade 3 up our students can be nominated for Junior School Council.  Here they attend weekly meetings tackling authentic issues.
