Our Arts Programs

Our art program introduces students to a range of mediums in a fun learning environment.

 

We are one of few schools in the state with a special relationship with The Melbourne Arts Centre. We were offered this relationship due to our long running participation in their world class programs and performances. We look forward to continuing this relationship for years to come.

 

 

Our Camps

Our students can start to participate in planned camping experiences from grade one with students from other smaller schools in our local area.

 

 

Our Environment

Pyalong is a caring and close knit community in a country environment. 

 

We have clean, well-cared for grounds with plenty of space to run and play equipment to cater for all ages. 

 

We value sustainability and caring for our environment and demonstrate this by our involvement with the local Landcare group and by utilising solar power and rain water.

 

 

Our Library & Literacy

Pyalong Primary School has a well stocked library and offers a program run by the local Library van each week.

 

Our reading program is second to none; which we achieve though our home reading programs, small guided reading groups; and our focus "Reading Power."

 

 

Our Numeracy

Our numeracy program ensures our students are well prepared to enter the next phase of their lives with an individualised and differentiated numeracy program using Numeracy Fluency assessment.

 

 

Our Parents Club

Parents Club organises local events that raise those extra funds that allow us improve our facilities and offer a greater range of programs.

Our Physical Education

Our physical education program includes a variety of different sports and activities; including comprehensive swimming and tennis programs.

 

We also have strong relationships with the local Netball, Cricket and Football clubs who attend the school to conduct programs.

 

 

Our Staff

Accessible, friendly and helpful staff and Principal. We ensure our teachers and support staff receive the best possible training to ensure the best standard of education for your child.

 

 

Positive Behaviour Program

This program acknowledges student’s positive behaviour rather than focusing on negative behaviour.

 

 

Social and Leadership Program

We aim to raise children who are well educated socially. We do this through our strong buddy program; our Junior School Council, House and School Captains.

 

Student led assemblies are run each Friday and includes participation from all levels of the school. This fosters public speaking and organisation skills as well as building confidence.

 

 

Stephanie Alexander Kitchen and Garden

The SAKG program supports and makes our Literacy and Numeracy program come alive with practical applications of the literacy and numeracy skills taught.  Our vegetable garden has been three years in the making and is absolutely enviable; our Kitchen facilities are state of the art!

 

 

Technology

Students have great access to technology with desktops in each classroom, brand new laptops for a full class and a ratio of 1 Ipad to 2 students.
