A WORD FROM OUR PRINCIPAL

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 students are considered as individuals when our staff team craft the best approach to teaching and learning. As a result our students are developing as self-motivated and thoughtful learners who meet challenges with a sense of wonder and enthusiasm.

Our team offers a variety of teaching and learning approaches that are challenging and promote different learning styles to improve student achievements.

Our teaching and Educational Support staff work collegiately to deliver a curriculum based on well-researched whole school approaches. As a team we create approaches that enable us to consider the individual learning needs of each child and to assess their progress and map out future teaching and learning strategies. The whole school approaches include our reading and writing program, phonics for students, and a Numeracy program that focuses on placing Mathematics in the real world and problem solving.

At Narracan Primary School we offer a comprehensive program to our students including Auslan as a second language, Fine Arts, Science and Sustainability and Physical Education. We also focus on building leadership skills in our students through various programs and opportunities.

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 spend some time getting to know us through the information on this website. If you have further questions or would like a tour of our school, please contact our office and we will be more than happy to help.

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