Erasmus Primary School

About Us

Welcome to Erasmus Primary School.
We are a non-denominational, co-educational primary school located in Hawthorn, Melbourne.
The school is named after Desiderius Erasmus, a 15th-century Dutch scholar and philosopher who believed in the power of educating children.

We aim to provide each child with all that they need to flourish and develop into caring, thoughtful, resilient and happy adults for the good of society. We live by our school motto: Let your light shine.


The education we offer our students seeks to nourish the whole child at four levels body, mind, heart and spirit. This includes physical education, philosophy, mindfulness, fine arts, music, drama and dance, as well as a rich and rigorous academic program.


Students and staff sit down together every day to enjoy a wholesome, organic morning tea and lunch freshly prepared in our own kitchen. Children are taught to serve others before serving themselves.
