The Deloraine Primary School community strives to develop active self- directed learners by empowering our learners to understand and apply the learner assets of being self-managers, researchers, collaborators, communicators, thinkers and contributors. These assets are built into the learning experiences on a day-to-day basis to encourage our young people to be self-motivated and responsible for their own learning pathway. Our commitment is to foster curious, creative and reflective thinkers, in a caring, safe and engaging environment, who will make meaningful contributions to our 21st Century world.
Set on 10 hectares of attractively landscaped surrounds, Deloraine Primary School boasts excellent facilities including an oval, soccer field, netball courts, garden and expansive areas for both active and passive play. A 25metre heated swimming pool, a large multipurpose hall and a gym all compliment the school’s extensive educational amenities.
Current school enrolment exceeds 300 and is inclusive of students from the surrounding rural intake area. There are 13 multi-grouped classes and an Early Learning Program targeting children 0-3 years and a Pre-Kinder learning group for the 3-4 year age group.
Student achievement, engagement and well-being are central to our teaching and learning. We have high expectations and provide students with a range of opportunities and extracurricular activities to develop their skills and talents based on our belief that all learners will experience personal success.
We have a whole school approach for the explicit teaching of literacy and numeracy, and an inquiry-based approach to developing key concepts in Humanities and Social Science, providing rich experiences through scientific investigations.
The broader Deloraine community has a diversity of skills, experiences, occupations, lifestyle and economic interests to enrich the opportunities and develop the talents of our learners. Our school provides a range of programs such as Physical Education, which includes Learn to Swim; Music and Drama, including participation in the annual local Drama Festival; and Environmental Science where students explore sustainability of both flora and fauna. We also offer a selection of extra-curricular opportunities to develop individual talents and interests, such as choir, instrumental band and a range of sporting experiences.
The well-being of students is supported and nurtured through the diligent care of our staff and support personnel. At Deloraine Primary School, each student is a valued member of our school community.
Deloraine Primary School takes pride in providing a welcoming culture for families where we value relationships and strive to engage all families in the learning process.
