Welcome to Bairnsdale West Primary School

Bairnsdale West Primary School is recognised at Network, Regional and State levels as a school with a culture focused on meeting the needs of all students so they can experience success.

Bairnsdale West Primary School has a school motto of ‘a caring, learning community’ and our school community has shared values and behaviours, which are committed to maximising the learning outcomes for all students.

At Bairnsdale West, students are encouraged and supported in their ‘whole person’ development in creative skills, academic performance, sporting skills as well as social and wellbeing development.

Bairnsdale West has been working professionally with Professor John Munro (Melbourne University) since 2006 in the development and implementation of ‘effective learning strategies’. Professor Munro now uses Bairnsdale West Primary School as a ‘model school’ due to excellent students results, staff knowledge and implementation, and our positive school culture.

As can be seen throughout this website, Bairnsdale West Primary School offers a large variety of purposeful programs and opportunities, including community based programs to enable students to develop social responsibility.

Bairnsdale West Primary School actively encourages the involvement of families through respect for individuals, understanding differences, and by the provision of a variety of different programs and activities.

Bairnsdale West Primary School is a school with a commitment to meeting the needs of all students. We therefore provide a wide range of programs to support learning, engagement and relationships so that our students achieve positive results.

We welcome interested people to call in for a chat or a visit to see our school in operation.
