Kerang Primary School is located within the central business district of Kerang and has strong Community ties. The school was established in 1874 and has a long, proud tradition in the local community. We have a vision for the future that includes further development and integration of information and communication technologies, high quality explicit teaching in learning neighborhoods and a policy of putting the student at the centre of learning in a safe, pleasant and friendly learning environment.
Specialist lessons for students consist of weekly MARC Van Literature Appreciations lessons in the school library, Specialist Physical Education lessons and Science lessons. The school also runs a Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden program, and participates in Energy Breakthrough. The use of ICT and touchscreen Promethean Boards with a comprehensive iPad and Netbook program has ensured students are being prepared for 21st Century learning. A Conferencing unit has continued to allow students and staff to participate in a number of diverse communicative and learning activities with people and programs on a global scale.
The School Council and Parents Club are actively engaged in school activities and fundraising. Book Parade is a highlight with the whole school community, as is the Mother’s Day High Tea. The reintroduction of an annual school concert is a real hit with the whole school community and looks like becoming a regular feature on the school calendar.
Kerang Primary School is committed to continuous improvement in all areas of the curriculum. A strong emphasis has been placed on Numeracy, Literacy and ICT which was enhanced by our participation in Professional Learning Teams and Literacy/ICT Professional Learning and Specialist Staff within our school.
The school is located in the centre of the Kerang township and is within walking distance of many local facilities such as the Local Library, Swimming Pool, Sporting Venues/Grounds, Kindergarten and Secondary School. The Primary School utilises these venues frequently to enhance the Learning Programs of the students.
The School is striving to create a challenging and supportive learning environment encompassing all members of our community based on the school values of Compassion, Accountability, Respect, Inclusiveness, Nurture and Gratitude.
