Welcome to Warburton Primary School!

Warburton Primary School has a fantastic and dedicated group of teachers and a great range of activities to offer your child. Our staff and teachers look forward to welcoming your child into our friendly and dynamic learning environment.

We incorporate the Independent Reader's Workshop and Writer's Workshop into our Literacy program across all levels, giving explicit teaching of skills and strategies. We value hands-on learning across all content strands in our Mathematics program. Our approach to inquiry and play-based learning places the child at the centre of the curriculum and teaching strategies; it ensures authentic personalised learning alongside formal, explicit instruction. We are proud to incorporate a whole-school approach to behaviour education through the Play is the Way methodology.

As part of our curriculum we offer Physical Education, Music, Art, Intercultural Understanding and the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden program. Through our extensive grounds and wetlands we are able to stay in touch with nature and incoorprate sustainability programs into our teaching and learning. In 2016 we will be implementing Digital Technologies as part of the new Victorian Curriculum.

Our school slogan is 'Small School - Big Heart'. Our enrolment of 60 promotes integration between older and younger children, with our 'buddy' program being a great success. Enrol now for 2016 -  call us on    03 5966 2010 to arrange a school tour with our Principal, Damian Marley.

TERM FOUR NEWS: Springfest was a great success! Thank you to Parents & Friends and staff for making it October 31st a very successful day. We also celebrated the school's 140th birthday with a special ceremony and a display of photos and objects from the archives.

Our Term Four Literacy focus is the Multi-Genre Project. We have been writing a variety of texts based on our chosen areas of inquiry. The Multi-Genre Project will be showcased from December 7th in the multipurpose room.

Our Kid-Friendly Kitchen is currently being established thanks to parent and community support, pushed along by Special Effort Fundraising courtesy of Warburton & Yarra Junction Community Bank (Upper Yarra Community Enterprises).

Our students are participating with Yarra Ranges Council by giving ideas and feedback for the Warburton Community Recreation Precinct, and exciting new project that will benefit the familes of Warburton. Watch this space!
