Welcome to Ainslie Parklands Primary School

Welcome to Ainslie Parklands Primary School

Located in the outer eastern suburbs of Melbourne, Ainslie Parklands Primary School is a caring and collaborative learning community.  Students, families and staff work closely together as we strive for academic excellence, foster social and emotional development and celebrate creativity. We support our students to articulate and demonstrate our school values of respect, responsibility and resilience in all they say and do. 

Ainslie Parklands Primary School has a strong parent community, who are actively involved in their child’s learning and the school as a whole. The community also has a wonderful diversity, which is a strength that we acknowledge and celebrate, with many families travelling some distance to make APPS their school of choice.
