Naracoorte South Primary School, in operation since 1963, caters for 300 culturally diverse students and their families. The solid school building with air-conditioned rooms and of conventional design is set in 4.5 hectares of well developed grounds. A further 4.5 hectares of native scrubland adjoins the school. A developmental plan is currently in place to better utilise this remarkable curriculum resource. Our new full sized gymnasium has enhanced our Physical Education program.
Building trust, care and respect as well as learning accountability through inquiry, are the values underpinning our culture of improvement. A blend of principles, beliefs and policies set the boundaries for consistent and appropriate action at all levels.
An ethos of reform ensures improvement in learning and teaching and refinement of environments for this to occur. Strong connections between wellbeing and learning, means that holistic education and care is integral to our work. Wellbeing is built on the strength of individuals and groups in this community, working together.
Site Learning Plan priorities in Literacy, Numeracy, Aboriginal Perspectives and Social Inclusion reflect district and state strategic plans. Effective relationships between Governing Council, Kids in Charge (KIC) and staff reflect inclusive decision making and family participation.
Specialist teachers in Music, Physical Education, Special Education, ESL support, a school counsellor and a Christian Pastoral Care Support Worker, all contribute to the wellbeing of this vibrant, thriving enrolment.
Buses from the southern outlying districts stop at Naracoorte South Primary and students can access OSHC via bus, from our site to Naracoorte Primary. Naracoorte Early Learning Centre also offer a drop off/pick up service to students up to the age of 6.
