Our School

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, Indonesian and STEM.

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 and house 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.

Principal’s Welcome



At Newborough Primary School our goal is for our students to be motivated learners who value themselves and their community. We help them develop the knowledge and skills to become successful and thrive in all of their life endeavours.

We understand that all learners are different and require different support and instruction to achieve their goals. All staff at the school, not only the teachers, focus on what each student is currently doing and how we can support them to get to the next step in their learning.

This focus is vital for their academic growth and is equally important for their social and emotional wellbeing.

With support of the Wellbeing Team, the staff are able to assist students in all aspects of their schooling life. Having fun at school is just as important as academic growth. Our main focus is to have happy students who love learning.
