Welcome to Aranda Primary School
We aim to provide young people with a wide variety of engaging learning experiences during their time with us. I would like to think that every child who attends Aranda School will find something that motivates them and stimulates their curiosity. Our children’s wellbeing and safety are of the utmost importance to our staff and the wider Aranda community.
We expect Aranda children to care for others, embrace our differences and strive to do their best. Good manners, resilience and compassion are all aspects of our graduate profile.
Our teaching team are an outstanding group of professionals who are committed to an evidence based approach to student growth. We focus on the needs of each individual and we measure progress on a regular basis. Our teachers visit each other’s classrooms, share best practice and regularly participate in professional development sessions. Great teachers who are supported by positive parents bring the best out of children.
I am proud to be part of the great team at Aranda and share with you the exciting educational programs and activities that operate at our school. I invite you to find out more about our school through this website.

2019 School Enrolments
Posted on 13 Apr 2018
Enrolment applications for term 1 of 2019 open on Monday 30 April 2018 and must be submitted online at https://form.act.gov.au/smartforms/landing.htm?formCode=1087.
All ACT children are guaranteed a place in an ACT Public School, from preschool through to college. Information about the enrolment assessment criteria and priority enrolment areas can be found at https://www.education.act.gov.au/school_education/enrolling_in_an_act_public_school.
If you are applying to enrol in preschool, year 7 or year 11 we ask that you submit your application by 4 June 2018 to support timely processing and school planning. From 30 June 2018, after the application has been processed, parents/carers will commence receiving advice from the school on the enrolment. Please note, that the order in which applications are received is not a factor in schools determining places and as a result, there is no requirement to submit your application form on the first day applications open.
