Drysdale Primary School (DPS), is in the heart of the historic centre of the Bellarine Peninsula situated about twenty kilometres from Geelong.

As a rural satellite community Drysdale is a popular centre for young families and commuters. Many current students at Drysdale Primary School have family ties to the community and the school dating back two or three generations. While a sense of history and belonging underpins the stable culture of the school, new families are always welcome.
