Chisholm Primary is a Catholic coeducational school that was established in 1994 and is one of two primary schools serving St Matthew's Parish in Windsor. Chisholm prides itself on being a safe, honest and respectful learning community. In living out the values of Christ, our aim is to share our faith, welcome all members into our school family and work together to create the best future possible for our students.

We are committed to providing each student with a learning environment that is comprehensive, inclusive and challenging. Located in Bligh Park, we are a vibrant school which seeks to live out the values of Christ in a caring and supportive environment.


Pursuing excellence in every endeavour

The community of Chisholm Primary follow in the footsteps of Caroline Chisholm whose pioneering spirit inspires us to embrace the changes necessary to constantly improve the educational outcomes of our students, and to look to the future with hope.

We set high expectations for our students and we encourage them to accept responsibility for their learning and behaviour. We aim to develop students who are confident, independently minded and well-placed to contribute to a just society, as well as having a deep understanding of, and commitment to, the Catholic faith.


An engaged community

Our students benefit directly from the way our parent community is involved in the life of our school. This contribution has a significant and lasting impact on our students. From parent involvement in the classroom, on excursions and carnivals, to their attendance at school masses and assemblies, Chisholm students know their efforts and education is valued by our community.

On a practical level, our Chisholm Community Group and parents who assist with learning use their skills to improve the facilities and educational outcomes of our students.


Equipped for a quality education

Technology now forms an integral part of a 21st century education and Chisholm is dedicated to integrating technology throughout the curriculum.

The school has a range of learning technology including mobile laptop banks, supervised Internet access and digital cameras – all intended to enrich the learning experience for students and ensure that the education they receive is engaging and relevant.
