Newborough Primary School is a vibrant and welcoming school that attracts students from Newborough and surrounds. The school was opened in 1949 and has a current enrolment of 133 students. We have a high quality-learning infrastructure and a broad teaching program that includes Physical Education, Art, Science and Digitech.
Newborough Primary School is a School-Wide Positive Behaviour Support (SWPBS) school and our school values of “Be Safe” “Be Respectful” and “Be a Learner” are embedded in all that we do at school. Our students learn to enact these values at school and in the local community. We are sure they will be model citizens in years to come.
Newborough Primary students know that to be successful learner they need to have a growth mindset and be prepared to enter the “learning pit”: true learning occurs after a struggle that can include failure or multiple failures. We celebrate our learning with exhibitions and individual and class based rewards.
Our school also has a well-developed student leadership program that includes School Captains, “Newbee” leaders with activities occurring throughout the year that the students lead and organise.
Like other parts of the developed world, the Latrobe Valley is a community in transition so it is important that we prepare all of the learners for a changing world and an uncertain future. Consequently, along with literacy and numeracy, our school curriculum guarantees the teaching and learning of the following skills:
Creativity and innovation
Critical thinking and problem solving
Communication and collaboration
Using technology and media safely and effectively
In short, our goal is for our students to be motivated learners who value themselves and their community, and have the knowledge, skills and attitudes that will see them thrive in all their endeavours.
