Andrew Backwell, Principal

On behalf of the Macarthur Street Primary School Community, I warmly welcome you to our website. I extend an invitation to you to visit our school and enjoy a tour of the well-equipped and spacious classrooms and facilities that we have to offer.

Macarthur Street Primary School has a proud history. Our school motto ‘Where the Past and Future Meet’ reflects our recognition of the significant contributions the school has made to the education of children in Ballarat and also to the up to date and innovative teaching and learning experiences that happen on a daily basis.

The partnership between home, school and community is actively practised and encouraged to enable the academic and social potential of every child to be realised; the well being of all to be nurtured.

Please make an appointment to visit our great school. It will be my pleasure to take you on a guided tour and share with you the opportunities our school has to offer.
