Welcome to the website for Glengarry Primary School.
Glengarry Primary School is a rural school of approximately 170 students, located only a short drive from Traralgon in the Latrobe Valley, Gippsland, Victoria. Our school was established in 1888 and is situated in the middle of the community orientated township of Glengarry. We are proud to be an integral part of the Glengarry and district community with our student population drawn primarily from the township of Glengarry and its surrounding towns.
Members of the Glengarry Primary School community enjoy a rural atmosphere, where building positive relationships with students and their families is highly valued by all. Our motto, ‘Partners in Success’ emphasises this commitment to build positive relationships with our families to ensure each child is successful.
The school has also established a close relationship with many local organisations and community groups which positively impacts the sense of connectedness our students feel towards their school and community.
Our vision and values have recently been reviewed and they reflect the aspirations our community has for our students and provides a sense of direction for our school community.
At Glengarry Primary School, we are empowered learners and respectful community members who embrace challenge and celebrate growth.
We have a strong focus on developing the whole child through social and emotional programs and the explicit teaching and development of our school values. We aim to develop respect, resilience and critical thinking in students.
These values form our commitment to the school wide positive behaviours and guide our daily actions and behaviours.
Our school has a strong commitment to Literacy, with a current focus on building students’ reading engagement and Numeracy, whilst also offering a diversified Victorian curriculum as part of our integrated curriculum units.
Students at Glengarry learn specialist programs in Physical Education, Kitchen Garden and Content Language in Learning – where students learn Indonesian through Visual Arts.
Our students also participate in a range of extra-curricular and sporting events that compliments and adds value to the growth of our students, such as a camping program from Grades 3-6, District, Division and Regional sporting events, regular incursions and excursions that are aligned to student learning. We also have a strong Student Leadership Program and are proud to be part of the Young Leaders in Schools, student leadership program.
