Poowong Consolidated School

At Poowong Consolidated School we value each child’s individuality and foster a ‘rural / family feel’ school environment.

Our students are considered as individuals when our staff team craft the best approach to teaching and learning. As a result our students are developing as self-motivated and thoughtful learners who meet challenges with a sense of wonder and enthusiasm. Our team offers a variety of teaching and learning approaches that are challenging and promote different learning styles to improve student achievements.

Our teaching and Educational Support staff work collegiately to deliver a curriculum based on well-researched whole school approaches. As a team we create approaches that enable us to consider the individual learning needs of each child and to assess their progress and map out future teaching and learning strategies. The whole school approaches include our reading and writing program, phonics for students, and a Numeracy program that focuses on placing Mathematics in the real world and problem solving.

At Poowong Consolidated School we offer a comprehensive program to our students including Auslan as a second language, Fine Arts, Science and Sustainability and Physical Education. We also focus on building leadership skills in our students through various programs and opportunities.

Poowong Consolidated School  welcomes all families, and we see your child’s education as an active partnership between home and school.  We encourage your involvement with our school family and your active participation in your child’s education.

Please spend some time getting to know us through the information on this website. If you have further questions or would like a tour of our school, please contact our office and we will be more than happy to assist.

Please feel free to contact the school, to make a time to come and see our ‘rural/family feel’ school.
