Ulverstone Primary School is a large primary school of 420 students located in the central North West township of Ulverstone. The majority of students come from Ulverstone with a growing number of students from outlying country and rural communities.
Ulverstone Primary was the first school to be established in Ulverstone in 1870 and has a local history of families who have attended the school.
The teaching staff at Ulverstone are experienced and highly qualified part-time and full time teachers. The school is supported by specialist staff responsible for Physical Education, Music and Information Technology. Support staff also provide library services, technical support, administrative services, and special education support. The school has regular access to visiting School Psychologist, Speech Pathologist and Social Worker.
Our school motto “Together, Today for Tomorrow” underpins the school culture and philosophy. We are committed to working together with children, parents and staff to bring about the best outcomes for children. We see our role as vitally important in preparing children now for the future.
Part of this preparation is helping children learn and grow together. Throughout our school we treasure the importance of belonging. This is supported by our rules for respect, participation, listening, doing your best and appreciating the efforts of each other.
There are numerous opportunities for parents to be involved in their child’s education within our school. We begin this partnership before children reach school age through our early learning programs and it continues throughout the primary years. The school community is also actively involved in decision making processes through participation in a fully elected School Association.
We take great pride on the relationships developed within our school and the happy and safe environment it creates for children to reach for the stars and excel in their achievement.
