ABOUT

Thorpdale Primary School

Thorpdale Primary School was established in 1889 and is situated in a tranquil rural location amongst the rolling hills of the Strzelecki Ranges, between Mirboo North and Trafalgar. In recent years, enrolments have remained stable around  40 students. 

We are a school that acknowledges our history and traditions and seek to balance this with a focus into the future, embracing innovation and current educational research, pedagogy and practice.

An atmosphere of warmth and friendliness characterizes the school in which all students are known personally and encouraged, challenged and supported by our caring and dedicated staff.

The size of the school is ideal for catering for the individual learning needs of students whilst maintaining a successful learning environment. All students are given opportunities to challenge themselves and experience success.

We offer a balanced, comprehensive curriculum that has a strong emphasis on literacy and numeracy.
