Principal’s welcome

Welcome to Richmond West Primary School. Our school is located in the densely populated inner  eastern suburb of Richmond on the fringe of the Melbourne Central Business District. We are proud of  our well-established bilingual programs that support and encourage children in the development of  Chinese, Vietnamese and English, as first and second languages. Our school is unique in that this most  successful bilingual immersion program, conceived early in the school’s establishment, is now regarded  as a rare model attracting interest from diverse stakeholders across the educational sector at state,  national and international levels.

Our vision at Richmond West Primary School is to value language within a community of practice  where  students become life-long learners that are literate, numerate and curious. We strive to develop articulate, socially responsible and resilient individuals who are working towards achieving their full potential as global citizens.
