2018 Foundation Students 


At Blackburn Lake Primary School we aim to captivate and challenge our students with a rich and differentiated curriculum that allows each and every child to reach their full potential in our safe, supported and caring school environment. We pride ourselves on a whole school community where our students feel known and supported by their teachers and peers and our families are welcomed by our wider school community. At Blackburn Lake Primary we look forward to developing an ongoing working partnership with you in the exciting journey of your child’s education over these important seven years.

A copy of your child's birth certificate and completed immunisation certificate are also required before commencement.
