Welcome to Echuca Primary School.

Echuca Primary School (208) first opened in 1858 and was relocated from its original site in 1995 to the current site in High St Echuca - nestled between the Campaspe River and the central business district. The school grounds have been developed extensively.

Our students are highly motivated and enthusiastic whilst our dedicated teachers provide an excellent teaching and learning environment. We have quality staff with a balance of experience, youth and enthusiasm.

Echuca Primary School provides a warm, caring and supportive environment, where children feel happy and relaxed while learning in a modern, well equipped environment. Students have access to a range of learning technologies at 208 throughout the school including interactive whiteboards, netbooks, notebooks and iPads. In 2014 there is a 1:1 notebook program in Levels 5 and 6 and we are conducting a ‘Bring Your Own iPad Trial’ in Levels 3 and 4.

The school enjoys strong support from parents, School Council, staff and local community. Great emphasis is placed on caring for our students, staff and parents by providing an environment that is both safe and secure. The buildings and grounds were specifically designed to meet the school community’s needs with active and passive play areas and provision of shade areas. We anticipate your support in maintaining our standards in education and student discipline as we build the partnership between home and school. This partnership is the keystone in your child's education.

Teaching staff are trained in Restorative Practices to ensure that there is a consistent approach to Student Well Being and Engagement. This recognises that all students have a right to learn and all teachers have a right to teach. Our aim at all times is to provide an atmosphere that is happy, harmonious and caring. Our aim is to ensure the healthy development of every child so that each has the knowledge, skills and resilience to be successful in a rapidly changing world. Echuca Primary School operates on the strong belief that the development of the ‘whole child’ is imperative, whereby self-esteem and confidence is essential for successful learning and is an integral part of our school’s mission.

The school has outstanding parent and community involvement in a range of activities such as the 208 Gala Ball, School Fete, Term Discos, sporting activities, camps and excursions.

Echuca Primary School has a reputation in the community for being ‘an excellent school’ that provides first class education and many additional opportunities for children.
