Principal's Comments

Welcome to Kalinda Primary School’s Website. Please take a few minutes to explore our school because we believe it's a flourishing, great school!


The fascias and eaves of our school are painted in eight glorious colours; red, yellow, orange, lime green, teal, blue, maroon and purple. These are similar colours to the ones featured on Melbourne Museum. We chose these colours not only for their aesthetic appeal but because they represent our school and our purpose. Kalinda is a place for children; a centre of excellence in learning and teaching.
