Welcome to Canterbury Primary School

Canterbury Primary School is located in the leafy eastern suburbs of Melbourne. As you enter our front gates, you will notice two large oak trees, which were planted in 1905. These trees symbolise our school’s rich history, spanning over 115 years. You will often find students collecting the acorns that have fallen, or meeting new friends below one of these trees, which is known to students as the ‘friendship tree’.
