Our school was established on its present site in 1974 after being relocated from the Deloraine High School site on the opposite side of East Barrack Street. Today the school is modern, bright and offers wonderful grounds and a vibrant learning area. The school’s well-resourced library, which is used by all classes from Kindergarten to Grade 6, is a ‘State of the Art’ resource centre.

Classrooms are supported with interactive whiteboards/TVs which are utilised as tools for learning.
