Numurkah Primary School has a proud history, being established in 1879. Our School Community welcomes everyone to our school and we look forward to working with parents and the wider community in encouraging and assisting all children to be the best they can possibly be, academically, physically and socially.
Our school encourages each child to “have a go” in all areas of learning, and along the way, develop important social skills such as getting along, persistence, organisation, confidence and resilience. These skills are promoted in our major social skills program: “You Can Do It”.
We also value the following in all group situations (based on the TRIBES community learning program): mutual respect, attentive listening, considered thinking, appreciation and personal best.
Our dedicated staff (teachers, aides, office workers, etc) work together and aim to provide a caring, positive and stimulating learning environment. We work with students to support their learning and their social/behavioural development.
We are proud of the involvement of our parents in the school’s programs, and the open communication between home and school, as we all work together to support the learning of our students. As well as School Council and the Parents and Friends Club, both of which play vital roles in the school, parents become involved as classroom helpers, excursion helpers, sports assistants, working bee helpers, etc.
Our school provides a wide range of learning activities. As well as the vital areas of Literacy and Numeracy, our students experience physical education/sport (including swimming), music (including choir), visual arts, science, technology (including computers), French, Social and Environmental studies. Students also have access to specific extension and support programs.
As part of the school’s 4 year Strategic Plan, we are particularly targeting these areas:
We encourage all new families to become active members of our school community, as we work together to challenge and extend our children so they reach their full potential.
