School profile

Noble Park Primary School services a residential area in South-Eastern Melbourne. The school was established in Buckley Street, Noble Park in 1911 and since then has undergone vast changes, socially and environmentally. Today, it is a culturally rich school community represented by at least thirty-five language groups.
