Mildura Primary School No. 2915 is one of four large primary schools in the Mildura Rural City Council local government area. The school currently serves a student enrolment of about 340.
The School was first established in 1888. There have been additions to the buildings over the past 100 years. From the beginning of the 2012 school year Mildura Primary combined and began operation on one site for the first time in more than 50 years, thanks largely to two BER template buildings. The new buildings consist of 6 classrooms, new library facilities, a half sized Gymnasium, art, music, physical education store and a canteen. We take great pride at Mildura Primary in the way our school looks and presents itself to the local community. The school is extremely fortunate to have access to substantial Mildura Rural City Council community facilities adjacent to the school. These include a library, hall, indoor and outdoor pools and ovals. Regular use is made of these facilities throughout the year.
Mildura Primary School has a firm focus on student outcomes in Literacy and Numeracy and is committed to preparing students for further education and life. The school provides a quality teaching program catering for the needs of the individual and has specialist teaching in Physical Education, Performance Art and Visual Art. Interactive whole school activities, shared specialist programs, regular whole school meetings, buddy grade activities and school news bulletin (daily), contribute to a strong feeling of school unity. The school has a multi-cultural mix of students including a significant Koorie, and Tongan /Samoan population
Mildura Primary School has an active commitment to Sport and Physical Education and has teams and students competing in local competitions. Local businesses have been very supportive of individual academic achievement, school sporting teams and music groups through sponsorship and awards. The staff is focused around delivering a ‘High Expectations’ environment and very dedicated and highly motivated to raise the academic and social success of our students.
We provide many programs to cater for the children and the local community. We have a "Total Learning Center" at the School for parents to access advice and services. This program is designed to assist them with their children's early learning needs. They are designed to give the children a flying start at school, particularly in the areas of language and school readiness. Help, advice and interesting programs are run for parents with a view to enhancing the future educational opportunities for their preschool children. The School has its own bus and a car which can be used for school excursions. Overnight excursions are held for Grade 3, 4, 5, and 6 students as a normal part of the school program.
The school is a calm and focused environment where children are happy and highly engaged in their learning.
