Welcome to Goornong Primary School. We are an energetic rural school 30km north of Bendigo. The school has a long and proud history, with the original school building dating back to 1875. Serving both farming and residential families, the school remains a central figure in the strength of the small Goornong community.

In 2012 a major upgrade to our facilities was completed with the opening of our new school. We are proud of our new facilitiy, which offers three learning spaces and a project space in an open, modern and flexible learning environment.

Our school’s purpose is to offer a friendly and caring environment that encourages each student to achieve their full potential. We want each child’s journey through primary school to be full of enjoyment, academic achievement and personal development. Honesty, teamwork, respect and care are our school’s values and all students, parents and teachers are responsible for upholding these on each and every school day. Our purpose and values guide all decisions and actions with regards to teaching, learning and student wellbeing.

The curriculum at Goornong Primary School has a strong focus on developing students’ skills in literacy and numeracy. Each student has their own individual improvement learning plan in literacy and numeracy, ensuring our curriculum focusses on the specific needs of each student.

Our specialist subjects include Garden Science, Art, Library, ICT, Physical Education, and Music & Drama. These ensure our students are provided with skills across a variety of fields.
