Welcome to MAGPIE PRIMARY SCHOOL

Magpie Gully PS No 415 was established in 1857 and re-named as Magpie PS No 2271 in 1892. The historic red brick building was completed in May 1880 and from 1986 classrooms were entirely comprised of relocatable buildings. In May 2011 the school was almost completely refurbished with new classrooms, new toilets and completion of the upgrade to the 131 year old administration building. This time marks a renewal of the school and a significant opportunity for the broader Magpie community to be served by a modern school that caters for the latest innovations in pedagogical approaches that foster independent student learning.
