About Us

Erasmus Primary School was established in 1996 by the School of Philosophy Melbourne, one of a world wide group of schools which offer courses in philosophy and self-development to adults.  The first of these schools of philosophy (known as the School of Economic Science) was established in London in the 1930's, and a number have gone on to establish children's schools around the world - St James Schools London; John Scottus School Dublin; John Colet School Sydney; Ficino School Auckland and St James Schools Johannesburg and Durban.  All share the same guiding ethos, which acknowledges that every person shares the same universal essence, and that given the right conditions, all have the capacity to grow to their full potential.
