About Our School


Porepunkah Primary School is committed to instilling learners with the values of being persistent, kind, and respectful.  Porepunkah Kids Rock!

We strive to empower all students to learn and achieve through experiencing high quality teaching practice and the right conditions for learning.  Our learners are given the knowledge, skills and dispositions for lifelong learning and the tools to shape their world around them through curious and creative contributions.

Porepunkah Primary School has a long-standing tradition of being a proud member of the Porepunkah community.  We partner with all community members through an active School Council and engaging Parents and Friends group to provide opportunities within and beyond our school gates. This shared ownership ensures that students, parents, and the community work together for the benefit of all and we are excited to invite you to be a part of our community.

Students at Porepunkah Primary School learn in classroom environments that are engaging and promote skills in literacy and numeracy.  Classroom teachers plan all teaching and learning activities using the Victorian Curriculum and specialist teachers take the students for The Arts, Music, Italian and Digital Technology.  All staff have a shared responsibility for the education of all students at Porepunkah Primary School and you are welcome to discuss your child’s learning with any of our staff members.

To support parents and students our school proudly offers an engaging and fun Before School Care and After School Care service every day of the week.  Currently our Vacation Care program is on hold due to staffing shortfalls.   I encourage you to visit the service and see the happy, engaged, and relaxed students during the session times.

Porepunkah Primary School is a place where learning is valued, students grow into future leaders, our community works together in a positive way, and you will feel very welcomed!
