Leongatha Primary School's vision is To foster kindness, curiosity, confidence and inclusion. Our students are lifelong learners who set high expectations, accept challenges and contribute to a global community. Our school values are To Be A Learner, To be Resilient and To Be Respectful. Leongatha Primary School (LPS) is a large primary school that has serviced its community for 130 years. Leongatha is a service town for the rural industries of South Gippsland, especially the dairy industry. LPS is a major stakeholder in the Leongatha Education Precinct that was established following the co-location of the Secondary College, Specialist School, TAFE and Primary School onto a single site in 2012. Leongatha PS has a current enrolment of 650 students, (Feb 2020), with enrolments increasing by 50 students since 2016. The staffing profile of Leongatha PS consists of equivalent full time staff, 3 Principal Class, Teachers and Education Support Staff. While each partner school in the precinct maintains their individual identity, there is a strong cooperation that facilitates a smooth transition for students. The LEP (Leongatha Education Precinct) meets twice a term to discuss ways that the schools can support each other and the students.
I am honoured to be Principal of such a fantastic school with outstanding students, excellent teachers and a supportive community. Leongatha PS prepares all students to be lifelong learners, following our motto of "Learning for Life". Our curriculum ensures students are skilled in the basics but allowed ample opportunity to develop their creativity, inquiry and excellence. The size of our school allows us to provide experiences in all areas of the curriculum catering for every child's needs and interests.
