Welcome to Currawa Primary School, a small school where Science Rules. Students are encouraged to learn in an innovative and nurturing environment.
At Currawa Primary School, we take pride in promoting a friendly atmosphere where parents, students and teachers work together to generate quality educational opportunities for the children. The values we endeavour to uphold are; Accepting, Curious and Enthusiastic (ACE). These values form the basis of all that we do.
Within the whole-school classroom, we have a strong emphasis on Reading, Writing and Numeracy. We incorporate Science into all learning areas that we can. Our Science curriculum promotes the use of collaborative learning teams and enquiry-based learning. Children have clearly defined roles within their work teams as they are encouraged to explore, ask their own questions and predict outcomes to problems.
In 2017 we started a Mandarin program. This is taught to the students using Polycom technology. The Mandarin program looks at culture, conversation, reading and writing. We had an overnight cultural excursion to Bendigo to work with 40 students visiting from China. We plan to build on our Mandarin program and incorporate it further into our curriculum.
The school has its own bus which enables us to connect with other schools, local organisations and participate in a large number of learning opportunities outside of our spacious classroom and Science Laboratory. The grounds are stunning and perched on Mount Major, above the picturesque University of Melbourne - Dookie Campus.
If you would like to know more about the school or come and see what we have to offer, please contact Principal Tim Seal for more information on (03) 58 286 581 or 0427715219.
