  • Message From Principal:


     principalWelcome to Cumuto Presbyterian Primary School : a learning focused school which provides a warm, welcoming and supportive environment. We aim to fulfil our school motto “Strive For Excellence”.

    Established in 1901, we have built a reputation for excellence in both teaching and pastoral care, with high academic standards in a nurturing yet challenging environment, where the children feel safe and enjoy learning.

    Through our broad, balanced and stimulating curriculum, we aim to develop the knowledge, skills, understanding and attitudes which will help our pupils become lifelong learners and global citizens. Attributes such as critical and creative thinking, problem solving, risk taking and the ability to reflect on learning are important and transferable building blocks which will help our pupils accept the challenges of life in an ever changing world.

    Our dedicated staff together with a small teacher /pupil ratio, ensure that each child receives the individual attention and the support to enable them to achieve their educational potential in all areas of the curriculum. Their professional and caring approach to learning, based upon mutual respect, support and understanding, creates the ideal environment for children to develop high self-esteem and to develop confidence in themselves and their abilities.

  • History of School:


    Cumuto Presbyterian School was established by the Canadian Missionaries in 1901. The school’s original site was situated at the Caratal Road, but was relocated to the St. Marie Emmanuel Road in November, 1920. The Cumuto Presbyterian School is the only public building in the community and therefore serves as a school, church and community centre for all living there.

    The school has a capacity to house fifty five (55) students. Presently forty eight students are enrolled at the school. Staffing at the school consist of five female teachers, four holding the post of Teacher Primary, one ATP, an appointed Principal, one female janitor and a BOA. All teaching staff holds a Bachelor in Education degree.
