2019 Book Week Parade

Back in the early 1990s Orchard Grove was originally an amalgamation of four primary schools so we have a very rich history. We are fortunate to have such amazing grounds, being surrounded by not only fantastic sporting grounds but beautiful parkland as well. As a result of our extensive grounds we have a very peaceful and tranquil setting that promotes positive physical and passive play.

Principal - Ms Glenda Harry
