It takes a village to educate a child

Metung Primary School is situated in a natural bush setting on the Gippsland Lakes between Bairnsdale and Lakes Entrance. The local area has a healthy tourist industry based upon recreation, boating and fishing.

Currently the school consists of four buildings: the original school building, which houses an Art, Science and Music classroom; a Mobile Library building; and two new Mod 5 buildings that are home to the administration area and the P/1/2 and 3/4/5/6 classrooms.

The core focus of the school is to provide opportunities for all students to achieve academic excellence, develop to their individual potential, become self-motivated learners, develop a sense of pride in their work and themselves and become active members of the community. Also, the school aims to develop an atmosphere in which children care for and respect themselves, other people and their environment.

Metung Primary School provides our students with amazing one-to-one, small group, whole class and whole school educational opportunities where we extend, challenge and nurture. Due to the small number of students in our school our passionate and committed teachers provide targeted learning tasks to meet the needs of each child. This, along with great camps, many sporting opportunities and excursions, means schooling at Metung Primary is as much about educating the whole child as it is a celebration of community life.

There has never been a better time to enrol your child at Metung Primary School. This is the Metung school for Metung people.

Contact the office and arrange a tour of the school.
