Wallan Primary School has served the community for more than 160 years. Our aim is to provide a safe, positive and inclusive learning environment in which all learners strive for their personal best and experience a sense of achievement. In our school community, students, families and staff demonstrate acceptance and connectedness.
The school's motto of 'Working Together for a Better Future' sums up our values of Getting Along, Organisation, Persistence, Confidence and Resilience which support our students' social and emotional learning. To further build a school wide culture that reflects our values the school has established a "team building" program that operates in all year levels. The teaching staff pride themselves on building positive relationships with the students they teach.
