Welcome to Elsthorpe School

Elsthorpe is a small, rural school situated in an incredibly beautiful bush setting.  We have a proud history of over 120 years and provide numerous unique learning opportunities for all our children from new entrants to Year 8.

We nurture the development of all our learners by building a partnership with our families to get to know the whole child, and how they learn best.

We are a PB4L school who promote a positive attitude to learning and life through our values of;

RESPECT

RESPONSIBILITY

BRAVERY

TOGETHERNESS

Our dedicated staff work closely together to develop targeted learning experiences for our students and promote collaborative learning activities that are meaningful and relevant.

We are lucky to have an incredibly supportive community who are actively involved in all aspects of school life.  We have a family orientated environment where Senior children care and support the younger students to develop bravery and responsibly.
