About DPS

Quality Education in a safe and nurturing environment.​

Drummoyne Public School is a dynamic Kindergarten to Year 6 school which has been educating local students for over 125 years. We are proud of our record of high academic achievement, and promote a love of learning through a challenging and nurturing environment.

All students have weekly lessons in a second language, either Greek or Italian. The school has a gifted & talented teacher for two days each week, plus both Reading Recovery and ESL teachers for students needing such extra tuition. Our IT coordinator maintains our extensive computing facilities, including Connected Classrooms and Interactive WhiteBoards in all classrooms. Drummoyne students are exposed to a wide variety of educational and social experiences.

All classrooms and the school hall are air conditioned and we are protected from aircraft noise by double-glazed windows.

We host before and after school care in conjunction with St Mark’s school.

Every student is encouraged to: strive for maximum potential in all facets of school life; be an effective communicator, problem solver and decision maker; operate as an effective team member; value learning and accept some responsibility for it; and have tolerance and respect for others. 

The School Values form the basis of our student welfare philosophy:

Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) delivers a positive and consistent approach to student behaviour across the school community. PBL acknowledges and rewards students for consistent positive behaviour. PBL teaches and reinforces school wide expectations. The whole school community is involved and shares a common language. Students understand the behaviour expectations. In addition, students not following our core values are issued consequences based on our school policy.


These were designed by our very own students with assistance from a graphic designer. Their names are Rawson the owl, Monty the pug, and Bretty the bull shark. We are very excited to start using our new mascots throughout the school. Each week we have a focus area across the school.
