Welcome to Woori Yallock

Woori Yallock Primary School is located in the township of Woori Yallock in the semi-rural

Upper Yarra Valley some 60 kilometres from Melbourne GPO.

We provide a comprehensive curriculum, personalised learning, exceptional teaching

and high expectations. We ensure that when students graduate, all opportunities in life are

open to them. Our school has doubled in its student population in the past 8 years and

currently has 320 students. This growth is not due to any new housing developments.

Growth is due to much improved teaching methods and outstanding academic results.

Our parents now feel pride and confidence in their local school. The school continues to

dominate the Yarra Valley Schools Public Speaking Competition which it has won the past

five years in a row. (Jena’s winning speech last year can be found on a video, in the

student life tab on this website).

Woori Yallock P.S. provides a safe, secure, challenging and stimulating learning environment. We specifically target individual learning needs and demonstrate excellence in relation to all of the key learning areas. The school has invested in ICT resources and has a 1-2 ratio which includes iPads, chrome books and desk top computers. The technology is used to support our engaging research based teaching programs.

Over the past number of years the school has had regular visits from other schools (15 in 2018) who come to see Woori Yallock Primary School's lesson structure and workshop model which has been held up as exemplary practice by the Bastow Institute of Educational Leadership.

We have a number of innovative intervention programs in place for both Literacy and Numeracy that are highly effective and popular with our students. These programs include Fast For Word, Levelled Literacy Intervention, and QuickSmart Literacy and Numeracy. We ensure that students do not fall through the gaps. Students that need to be challenged and extended are also catered for.

Our emphasis on educating the whole child is demonstrated by being a Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program school and that we also offer electives that come from ideas formulated by our Junior School Council. Other programs we run include gender based classes; ‘Boys to Men’ and ‘Believe’ for our Grade 5/6 students.

Our beautiful grounds are a real feature of the school along with the fantastic scenery as a backdrop. We are an environmentally friendly school with features such as a frog bog, vegetable garden, native flora area, chook shed, pet enclosure and water tanks. The school is entering into the government pilot program 'Greener Government School Buildings' which will see it producing more green energy to lessen the schools carbon footprint.

Our school values are ‘High Expectations and Respect’, while our school motto is 'Take Pride At All Times'.

If you watch the video below you will get an idea of how proud we are of our beautiful school.
