Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Nathalia Primary School.


Education of a child is a partnership between home and school. It is important that we both work together in the best interest of the child. Studies have shown that a child makes the most progress when home and school work closely together. I look forward to working with you to develop your child’s social, emotional and academic skills.

The school welcomes parental participation in classroom and school activities. This can include helping with reading activities, excursions and school sports.  We hold a number of activities throughout the year where parents are invited to come along and join us.

We understand that your time is valuable but there are many things you can do to help the school such as being a member of the School Council, Parents Club, helping at working bees, fund raising activities and attending extra curricula activities.

Nathalia Primary School is part of the Nathalia Learning Community, working in partnership with our neighbouring schools. This unique structure enables us to work closely together to provide high level professional development for teachers and the sharing of ideas and resources to  ensure that all students get the best learning opportunities.

Nathalia Primary School is fortunate to have highly skilled and professional teachers and support staff who love their work.  The personnel at this school care for the children and work strategically to bring out the best in their students.
