Welcome to Narracan Primary School

At Narracan Primary we value each child’s individuality and foster a ‘rural / family feel’ school environment. Our school community values are empathy, persistence and learning confidence.

Our school is situated in a quiet, picturesque setting, 12km south of the city of Moe, in the Latrobe Valley. Established in 1893, Narracan Primary School enjoys a friendly, rural atmosphere and provides similar facilities to those offered by schools in larger centres.  With two original historic school buildings, a music/art classroom and a new purpose built classroom including administration wing, we have the best of  ‘old’ and ‘new’ learning facilities. 

Our aim for our students at Narracan Prmary is that they can operate effectively as individuals and/or as part of a group, develop tolerance and respect for others and their environment, whilst developing self-esteem, independence, resilience and confidence to become lifelong learners.

We offer a comprehensive curriculum for all students.  Our teachers offer a variety of teaching and learning approaches that are challenging and promote different learning styles to improve student achievements.

Narracan Primary welcomes all families and we see your child’s education as an active partnership between home and school.  We encourage your involvement with our school family and your active participation in your child’s education.

Please feel free to contact the school, to make a time to come and see our ‘rural/family feel’ school.
