Erasmus Primary School is one of only 11 Renaissance schools worldwide
Erasmus Primary School is an independent, non-denominational primary school that draws on some of the great philosophic traditions from around the world. 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.

We build character, 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. 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. Our students regularly sing uplifting songs, enjoy fine music, read and recite literature and participate in plays and assemblies.

We nurture the power of attention
At Erasmus Primary School, we recognise the power of attention as the master key to the development of your child. Focused attention brings stillness, intelligence, happiness, courage and every virtue that is needed for the discovery and development of your child’s talent – be it academic, artistic, physical or emotional. We use simple mindfulness exercises to help focus the mind and enable your child to develop an inner quiet, strength and steadiness. They are then able to attend to the task at hand with greater application. 

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.
