Principal's Message

Welcome to the Belmay Primary School Website.  We are proud to showcase our school and to provide a range of information for our families and the wider community.  Belmay Primary School has a long history as a caring school and is widely respected in the local community. A number of our parents attended the school as students themselves.  At Belmay we choose respect in everything that we do. Respect for ourselves, respect for others and respect for the world around us. This message is reinforced daily and has led to the development of a wonderful school culture where each and every individual is valued.  We set high standards for behaviour and academic success. We encourage our students to work towards their personal best at all times. There are many opportunities for our students to shine.   We value quality partnerships between all members of the school community - teaching and non-teaching staff, students, parents and the wider school community.  Please enjoy finding out about our school programs and do not hesitate to contact me for further information.

Building Parents as Partners

Belmay continues to value the input of parents and the local Cloverdale community. To make our wonderful school maintain the family feel, we encourage parents to be a part of school life in a variety of ways.

PaCE Program:

PaCE is a program for parents and carers of Aboriginal Children funded as IAS by the DP&C and supported and run by Communicare. Parents gather to discuss, support and learn together. Mostly we want to learn about how we can be better parents so our children can have access to all the opportunities available to them.

Classroom & Special Event Parent Volunteers:

Periodically, parents may be invited to volunteer for their child's classroom activities & various school events. This may include reading with students and attending excursions and other activities as outlined by the classroom teacher.


Belmay and SEMLDC families in the area are invited to bring their young children for free play activities at Belmay's Drama Room once a week. To register your interest, please contact Belmay's front office.

School Council

A School Council consisting of the Principal, staff, and elected parents operates at the school. It meets once a term and discusses items of significance to the school community. Elections are held every year and we solicit your interest and support.

To present an item for discussion and consideration at School Council meetings, you can email the Council Chairperson (David Gerstorfer) or contact the school directly on 94791393;
