A message from our Principal
It has been my privilege to be the principal of The Lake Primary School since 2007. I am enormously proud of our wonderful school. We have a supportive school community comprising enthusiastic and responsible students; experienced, caring and talented staff and highly interested parents. We endeavour to promote strong positive educational partnerships between school and home. Together we can ‘Sail towards Success.’ Every student matters and every moment counts at The Lake Primary School.
Our school aims to provide an academic, social and physical environment that allows all students to achieve their relevant potential. The school encourages this through a strongly family oriented, rural school setting and utilises the local environment to enhance student learning and community development. In 2019, the school has 25.7 equivalent full-time staff: 2.0 principal class, 19.1 teachers and 4.6 Education Support staff.
The school offers a comprehensive curriculum based on the Victorian Curriculum with an ongoing emphasis upon literacy and numeracy. ICT also continues to be a major focus in the school. Specialist programs are conducted in Italian, The Arts and Physical Education. Literacy intervention programs are also conducted. Internal Literacy and Numeracy Coaching programs continues to provide valued support and guidance for teachers The Compass Student Management system is pivoted in maintaining daily attendance rolls, student reporting and student work samples uploaded online are all current features of the program. The school has a significant digital footprint with a Facebook and App site.
The school also continues to increase in enrolments with an enrolment of 292 students attending the school in 2019.
The Lake Primary School completed a review in 2016 with the new School Strategic Plan guiding the school from 2017-2020.
We are very excited about the future and anticipate considerable progressive enrolment increases as the Cabarita, Birdwoodton and South Mildura residential areas continue to expand.
