Our Best Always

Welcome to Lismore Primary School

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Lismore Primary School, where it is my privilege to be the principal of such a wonderful small school.

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.

At Lismore Primary School our mission is to develop each individual student to become confident, capable and creative lifelong learners. We are committed to student centred learning in an ever changing global society.

Our four values are:

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.

Excellence We set high goals and strive for personal best.

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.

As a smaller school, our teachers know each of the students and have the opportunity to develop excellent teacher/student relationships. We also know our families really well and value the opportunity to share their child’s learning journey with them.

School Council and Parents and Friends work enthusiastically to support the school in a number of areas, including fundraising to provide a range of additional resources.

I proudly invite you to explore our website to become familiar with the school’s many exciting opportunities, and to call our school to experience all that Lismore has to offer.
