what our school
stands for

Be your best. Show respect. Everyone belongs.

We like to think that we take a common sense approach to education. We're not all straight-laced 'old school' (though you'll certainly see elements of it), but we're also not ultra-cool, trendy or experimental. We simply believe in building strong relationships, working hard, learning lots, and having fun. Find out more about particular features of our school below.





The real measure of our impact is in the difference we make for all children in all aspects of their learning. We value the individual differences and needs of all of our students and work to the best of our abilities to cater for all of them. It's not about being the best, it's about being your best.

In 2013 we began the journey of becoming a KidsMatter school. KidsMatter Primary is a mental health and wellbeing framework for primary schools and is proven to make a positive difference to the lives of Australian children.

KidsMatter Primary provides the proven methods, tools and support to help schools work with parents and carers, health services and the wider community, to nurture happy, balanced kids.

A word from
Our principal


Wahgunyah Primary School is a school that aims to be inclusive, that values each child and helps them to feel like they belong. Our intimate size and the strong relationships staff form with students is the secret to this. At our school, we think we've got the balance right.
We want our kids to be resilient and independent. We support them but don’t do everything for them. We’re not afraid to comfort children who need it, but we’re also not afraid to say ‘it’s okay, you'll get past it.’ We do this with confidence because we take the time to get to know individual students. Knowing students means knowing when to protect and when to push.
