Michelle Rafferty – Principal

Welcome message from the principal

Welcome to Victoria Primary School! We are a primary school catering for girls from Grade 00 to Grade 7 in the city of Grahamstown/Makhanda. Victoria Primary shares a campus with Victoria Girls’ High School which has a proven track record. We have a strong tradition of being a school which nurtures our girls into becoming responsible, independent, self-disciplined and life-long learners.

Our committed team of well-qualified teachers provides an excellent academic education using both tried and tested techniques as well as up to date technology. Sound values and a strong moral compass ensure that our girls are well prepared for the challenges of adolescence.

Cultural and sporting opportunities are varied and play an important part in the ethos of the school. Our aim is for every child to become inspired to learn, to interact well with others, to develop empathy and integrity, to lead a healthy life style, to play and have fun and to solve problems.

Our motto “Virtute et Opera” – Courage and Toil – is a daily challenge to every individual to give of their best and to make brave and responsible choices.


Victoria Primary School is committed to providing a balanced primary education of a high standard ensuring a happy, stimulating learning environment.

Victoria Primary School recognises the heritage and culture each person brings to the school community, the unique nature of every child in our care.

Victoria Primary School promotes the development of intellectual and life skills, the ability to think, the encouragement of creativity and an attitude of caring.
