Trafalgar Primary School is a medium sized rural primary school catering for approximately 400 students in years Foundation to Grade 6. We have 34 equivalent full-time staff. This includes 2 principal class staff, 25 teachers and 10 education support staff. Trafalgar Primary School adjoins the local government secondary school site and newly opened Early Learning Centre. Together, we form a vibrant and cooperative education precinct that is promoting strong transition pathways and enrichment opportunities for students. The primary school, relocated to the new site, has been educating local students for over 140 years having celebrated its centenary in 1979.
Trafalgar is located 120 kilometres from Melbourne and backs onto the foothills of the Strzelecki Ranges to the south. The town is in one of the fastest growth areas of the State and has grown significantly in recent years. The school has three values: Be Safe, Be Respectful, Be A Learner. These values are aligned with our commitment to School-Wide Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) and promote health, wellbeing and social inclusion for every member of the School Community. Being fully inclusive, we do not charge families any fees and provide students with all stationery and textbooks free of charge.
Trafalgar Primary School is a vibrant, caring and inclusive place to learn with specialist programs in Music, Media (Visual Art), Indonesian culture and an expanded Health, Physical Education and Sports activity program. Students can expect to spend at least 2 to 3 hours a week being active, learning team-based philosophies and extending themselves. All the mainstream sports are included (such as AFL, the “world game”, cricket, rugby league, netball, basketball) but we also ensure that students can experience tennis, lawn bowls, T ball, athletics, taekwondo, gymnastics, AFLX, Volleyball. This list continues to grow. We are serious about water safety, every student receives free swimming lessons every year. The school also has a successful Performing Arts program.
At Trafalgar Primary School we believe in fostering each child’s desire to learn as we develop creative thinkers, strategic problem solvers, collaborative team members and independent, confident learners who are equipped for future success.
Be Safe, Be Respectful, Be a Learner
