At Traralgon South Primary School, we firmly believe that for every child, their learning experience should be enjoyable, challenging, and successful. Every child is provided the opportunity to develop to their full potential in a safe, positive, and stimulating environment. This philosophy is supported by both the size of the school and the commitment from all staff to deeply understand the personalities, skills, and abilities of every child. In 2024, our school has 119 enrolled students in five classrooms (Prep/1, Grade 1/2, Grade 2/3, Grade 4/5, and Grade 5/6).
The learning program at Traralgon South Primary School reflects a strong commitment to the Victorian Curriculum, with an appropriate emphasis on literacy and numeracy, as well as the specialist areas of Physical Education, Auslan (Australian Sign Language), Music, and the Arts. Best practise teaching is implemented across the school through the delivery of an evidence-based instructional model, using the Explicit Direct Instruction methodology. Our learning program is further complemented with a structured synthetic phonics approach to teaching literacy (Sounds-Write), the incorporation of the VCOP (Vocabulary, Connectives, Openers, Punctuation) program into all classrooms to strengthen the learning of writing, the delivery of an integrated curriculum (MAPPEN) that enables a whole school focus on the same concept simultaneously, and The Resilience Project embedded into all grades to support student wellbeing. Additionally, high quality, special purpose programs are made available to all students, such as swimming, Life Education, camps, and excursions. Finally, our curriculum supports an effective transition to secondary school, strengthened by regular interaction with other local Primary Schools through inter-school camps and sporting activities.
We are proud of the strong reputation we have built in the region as a Primary School that delivers a high-quality teaching and learning program and achieves excellent results. I invite you to arrange a tour by phoning the school on (03) 5195 5244.
