Our goal at Lara Primary School is to create a learning environment that recognises the unique stages of development and provides child-centred experiences reflective of the Victorian Curriculum. When developing curriculum programs, our teachers take into account the whole child and their individual learning needs. Whilst, Literacy and Numeracy are a key focus, we also place high importance on other areas such as Inquiry, Physical Education, Science, Digital Technologies, Art and LOTE (Indonesian).
We are proud of our strong sense of community and association with the environment. We take full advantage of our rural location. This is reflected by the number of extra-curricular programs offered to students at all year levels, including our important partnership with Serendip Sanctuary.
At Lara Primary School there is a consistent approach to student behaviour and management that is based on best practice. Students are explicitly taught social and emotional skills through our Student Wide Positive Behaviour System. They are also encouraged to display a growth mindset by taking responsibility for and reflecting on their own behaviour. The students are directed by our three school rules:
– I am safe
– I am respectful
– I am ready to learn
