Our focus is the cultivation of every aspect of the child’s being – body, mind, heart and spirit. We offer philosophy, meditation and mindfulness practices as a way of nurturing all four aspects of the being.
All children and staff sit down together daily to eat a freshly prepared, vegetarian morning tea and lunch where children are taught to serve each other before serving themselves. The school has around 125 students and is based in Hawthorn, Melbourne.
The unique and expansive curriculum including Music, Latin and Sanskrit is taught by dedicated, caring and brilliant teachers providing a fertile environment for young minds to develop and prosper.
We offer an ambitious and creative curriculum
An Erasmus education offers an ambitious and creative curriculum, designed to give each pupil the opportunity to thrive and flourish according to his or her own unique talents.
Erasmus has an academic focus with consistently high academic results and a low student/teacher ratio.
We provide a thorough, systematic grounding in Literacy and Numeracy. Other subjects include Philosophy, Thinking and Learning, Health & Physical Education, Science, History and Geography. We take a classical approach to languages including studies in Sanskrit and Latin. A diverse palette of visual and performing arts programs includes Art, Music, Drama, Dance and activities such as Needlework and Woodwork. These pursuits greatly assist in the development of intellectual and cognitive skills, self-expression and fine and gross motor skills.
We build character, and encourage respect and consideration for others
At the heart of all we do at Erasmus Primary School is the desire to provide your child with what they need to flourish and live a civilised and cultured life for the good of society. This means developing a character that is caring, thoughtful, resilient, happy, effective and disciplined.
