Dimboola Primary School believes that each child is a unique individual as well as a growing member of society. The school’s role is to assist children to develop to the fullest potential and to acquire the knowledge, attitudes and personal goals to contribute fully to society.
We aspire to provide our students with a safe, secure and supportive environment based upon teamwork, respect, flexibility and trust so that they have the opportunity to achieve their personal best in all Key Subject Areas.
Staff, students, parents and carers are all valued members of the school community, working together they provide direction for the school and contribute to the decision making process.
TOGETHER WE CAN DO GREAT THINGS
There is a strong emphasis on learning partnerships in the school. The parents at Dimboola Primary School are encouraged to be actively involved in their child’s “learning journey”. Parents and caregivers play a key role in the education of their children and we believe that students achieve their potential when there is a strong partnership between all stakeholders – child, teacher and parent.
