Modern Teaching and Learning Spaces
Mount Waverley Heights Primary School is fortunate to have excellent indoor and outdoor facilities. From newly renovated classrooms to generous and spacious outdoor areas – there is an abundance of space for students to learn and grow. While facilities are well maintained and attractive, the school continues to seek improvements that will further enhance learning opportunities for students.
Our modern teaching and learning spaces encourage collaboration and are conducive to quality learning outcomes. These versatile spaces and all our classrooms are equipped with digital learning resources and wireless connectivity to support the changing landscape of teaching and learning in the 21st century.
New Junior School Building
WOW – what a great turn out and celebration we had Friday 20th July at our Grand Opening! It was fantastic to see so many parents and additional special guests in attendance. We were expecting around 10 special guests, but it was lovely to have the builders, architects and Program Managers invite their whole team. We would also like to acknowledge and thank our local member Mr Steve Dimopoulos for officiating the opening. Our special guests were really impressed by our students and the community spirit demonstrated. It was also nice to be reminded that we do truly have a very special community.
Performing Arts Centre
Our Performing Arts Centre (PAC) is a fantastic edition to the school facilities. This facility is used for a variety of school programs including our Music/Performing Arts Program, Perceptual Motor Program (PMP), Physical Education, school assembly, Out of School Hours Care and whole school incursions and events (refer to events table).

Grounds – Abundant Space
At Mount Waverley Heights Primary School we offer an abundance of ‘extra’ space for our students to spread their wings both inside and out. Few government primary schools have a full-sized football oval, two basketball courts, three adventure playgrounds and a large indoor centre for whole school events. At Mount Waverley Heights, we are fortunate to have all this in addition to our modern and stimulating learning spaces.
Car Parking Options
The school has ‘off street’ parking for the use of the school community at both the Solomon Street and Huntingdale Road ends of the school. For working families this provides an attractive option as children can be dropped off at school on the way to work.
Both locations provide a ‘drive in – drop off’ option in the mornings and parking in the afternoons. We ask that all users of the school’s parking facilities ensure they are always careful in the manner that they enter and exit the school premises to ensure safety for all. Strict speed limits of 5km apply to all areas inside the school premises.
In providing these car parking options for families, we are ever mindful that if the choice is available, we hope that families who live locally will predominantly choose to walk rather than drive.
