I am proud to lead Mirripoa Primary School and would like to extend an invitation to prospective families to contact the school for further information about our wonderful students and school.
Learning and Growing Together.
Together we inspire and grow curious learners who think critically and thrive in their communities.
Mirripoa comes from the Wadawurrung language (the traditional owners of the land that the school is built on) and means sunny plains. It is a state of the art learning facility that opened in 2020 with 116 students. The school buildings were designed using the latest research on effective learning environments. The design supports personalisation, active investigation and inquiry, collaboration and student agency.
Our school revolves around creating opportunities for excellence for each student. Our Year 6 graduates are effective learners, innovators and critical thinkers who are prepared for the challenges of secondary schooling and beyond. We believe in developing skills and attitudes that will ensure a lifelong love of learning and growth for our students.
Our professional and caring staff continually strive to improve student outcomes by using evidenced-based teaching strategies to inform their practice using collaborative planning and reflection. They provide individualised approaches to foster each student’s academic and social development. We work in partnership with the school community to create a safe, friendly, and inclusive environment where every child is known, valued and supported in their learning.
The school curriculum is based on the Victorian Curriculum, delivering strong academic achievement with a strong focus on literacy and numeracy. We use an integrated inquiry approach to curriculum planning that links curriculum content across different subjects in meaningful ways for our students.
The school offers specialist programs in the performing arts, visual arts, LOTE (Indonesian) and P.E. All students in grades 5 and 6 are involved in the Inter School Sports program.
