Noojee Primary School

About Noojee Primary School

Noojee Primary School (NPS) is located approximately 40 Kilometers North of Warragul, on the Latrobe River and is the last settlement before Mt. Baw Baw.

School number 4098 opened in 1922 on its current site, although prior schools had begun as early as 1890.

The school council and staff believe that the children learn best in a happy, caring and supportive environment, and that the success of each child is the direct result of a partnership between students, staff and parents, where all students are able to access readily available individual assistance.

Students are expected to develop self discipline, work co-operatively with others, take pride in their school and their work, value achievement and respect staff, parents, community members, other students and visitors.

The school is generously staffed, with a teaching Principal and junior room Teacher, supported by Mobile Mibrary and a Mandarin Teacher.
Several teaching aides are employed and available to give individual support to students.

Noojee Primary School is part of the Tarago schools cluster along with Labertouche, Jindivick and Neerim District Rural Primary School.

This allows for collaborative practice of staff and provides program enrichment in the provision of cluster days and access to camps at grade 3/4 and grade 5/6 levels.

NPS is also part of the Tarago Educational Community (TEC) which consists of the 3 previous schools as well as Neerim South and Lardner Primary Schools and Neerim District Secondary College.

The TEC was formed to promote a stronger profile of public education in the district, and also allows for the provision of Mandarin teachers across all schools.

Fortnightly visits from the Mobile Area Resource Centre (MARC Van) provides students with a wide range of library resources and lessons in library research skills and literature appreciation.

The school underwent its triennial review in 2017.

The next strategic plan will focus on; improving students outcomes in reading writing and number, providing a safe connected learning environment for all students and ensuring the school continues to provide school viable public education for its community.
