About Us

Situated in the heart of Reservoir, our school hasĀ 90 years of providing quality, inclusive education to children of diverse cultures. Within walking distance of both Reservoir and Ruthven stations, but located in a quiet residential street, Reservoir Primary School is accessible from many surrounding suburbs.


Experienced and dedicated staff members have a sound knowledge of the curriculum. We are proud of our children’s academic achievements our statewide testing results speak for themselves!

All levels of academic ability are catered for, with intervention programs such as Reading Recovery, and extension English and Maths programs for more able children. Specialist subjects – Science, Art and LOTE (Italian) – are offered for all children, with a Strings and Keyboard program as an elective. Physical education and sport, as well as a specialist Swimming program and a Drama program, encourage the development of balance, skills and sportsmanship. The well-stocked Library is in constant use by children and staff as a resource centre. Computers (including monitored access to the internet) are provided in all classrooms.

Well-maintained grounds, with a large oval, shade sails, quiet areas and challenging playground equipment encourage children to explore the outdoors. Our recently refurbished Multi-Purpose Room is used for assemblies, performances, music recitals and our Grade Six Presentation Night. The Gallery provides another meeting venue and a quiet area for days of extreme heat.

Our popular Before and After School Care program has its own building, with plenty of room for creativity!

Come and see for yourselves why so many families have chosen Reservoir Primary to nurture their children through their important formative years. You won’t be disappointed!
