Mount Waverley Heights Primary School

Message from the Principal

Small School Big Heart ’ – Being part of our school is about being part of a real community – a small school where everyone knows each other’s names, where teachers know all the students and where lifelong friendships grow. We are lucky that our community is represented by a diverse range of cultures, which not only enriches our community, but truly reflects what the real world is all about. It also helps students build empathy and understanding for others – it is what weaves and connects us together.
