Prep to Year 4 Campus

Philosophy – where every child can dream, believe and succeed.

The Prep-4 campus combines the school values of integrity, co-operation, honesty, respect and responsibility in an environment that fosters the development of globally aware and community minded students that have the skills and attitudes necessary to thrive in the 21st century.

Our dedicated and highly competent staff create wonderful classroom learning environments with an emphasis on Literacy and Numeracy. Complementing this is our belief that all students thrive in a positive social, emotional and academic environment. This is underpinned by the culture that we are all responsible for every one of our students and that it does indeed “take a village to raise a child.”

At our campus we are committed to providing a voice for all students by giving them the opportunity to influence their learning journey at our school. This is through Campus and House leadership roles, cross age learning, Student Representative Council positions and the daily conversations we engage in with our students.

Everyone deserves a high quality education. Here at Yarrawonga College P-4 campus, our vibrant and energetic community seeks to positively influence all aspects of our student’s development.

We welcome you to continue, or commence, your learning journey with us.
