Principal’s Welcome

Together we learn and grow.

Welcome to Wonthaggi Primary School where we take pride in our warm, welcoming school community, which we know you will feel as soon as you enter.

We aim to build a love of learning and at Wonthaggi Primary, delivering stimulating, engaging and challenging learning programs that foster educational excellence. By working with our students to set and reach next step learning goals, we see an enthusiasm and a passion for learning.

We prioritise our relationships with the families and carers of our students to ensure that we are working together to support them as learners, both academically and emotionally. Building partnerships that share clear and honest communication, is a vital part of supporting our students as they to strive to be their best and achieve wonderful outcomes. As part of this, we have a strong welfare support program where we work together to build a positive learning environment for all students.

Our culture of learning centres around seeing ourselves as lifelong learners who are always looking to develop and build on our knowledge and understandings, to provide the best possible educational programs for our students. This also includes our teaching staff, engaging in regular mentoring and coaching with our Learning Specialists in Literacy and Numeracy, as well as additional professional development.

Warm regards,

Wendy Truett
