About Lismore Primary School
Lismore Primary School would like to acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land on which we work and pay our respects to Elders both past and present.
Lismore Primary School serves a rural community in the Western Plains district. Our school is situated in a central position to major areas, and is 80 kilometres from Ballarat, 100 kilometres from Geelong and 100 kilometres from Warrnambool.
The school is set in spacious, attractive and well-maintained grounds which contain an oval, netball/basketball/tennis courts and two adventure playgrounds. The school building has five classrooms plus a library and a separate art/general purpose room. The toilet block is accessed from the school through a covered walk area.
At Lismore Primary School our mission is to develop each individual student to become confident, capable and creative lifelong learners in a constantly changing global society. We focus on the individual needs and student centered learning approaches that embrace 21st century learning.
Our four values are:
Excellence – We set high goals and strive for personal best.
Respect- We show care, trust, concern and tolerance for ourselves, others and the environment.
Responsibility- We accept a personal responsibility for our words and actions.
Persistence- We maintain our expectations at all times in all things.
Lismore Primary School believes in the education of the whole child so that all children have the opportunity to become responsible individuals. We have a strong focus on the Health & Wellbeing of all students and have established a dedicated space for students to engage in mindfulness activities. Our ‘Growing with Gratitude’ program aims to help teachers, students and families easily develop the habits of gratitude, kindness and mindfulness that have been identified as the stepping stones to greater happiness and success. Our community values a secure and happy learning environment which nurtures pride and develops positive attitudes.
Our school logo is “Our Best Always”.
