Tylden Primary School

Welcome to Tylden Primary School

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to Tylden Primary School. The school is situated in the picturesque township of Tylden in the Macedon Ranges Shire. Local families choose Tylden PS for their children, as do many families from the towns of Kyneton and Woodend and the rural areas of Glenlyon, East Trentham, Trentham, Fern Hill and Springhill. 

Tylen Primary School

Throughout its proud 150 year history, Tylden PS has had a reputation as a friendly school that provides a comprehensive education to the children in the local community. Our students are motivated learners who are curious, articulate, socially capable and well equipped for the future.

Parents are attracted by the pleasant, rural environment and value the strong sense of community and pursuit of high academic standards. Students particularly enjoy the spacious grounds and gardens that are so conducive to play, exploration and relaxation.

Our school grounds are meticulously maintained by the members of our school community, and there is an enduring and strong tradition of parent involvement in classroom and extra-curricular activities. The pride all our community has for our school is evident in everything we do.

I am fortunate to have the opportunity to lead this vibrant learning community and I am very proud of the achievements of our students, the high quality of our staff, and the warmth and friendliness that is renowned locally.

Lee MacDonald,
