ABOUT WOORI YALLOCK
We are blessed with some of the best grounds for a school as well as an amazing outlook over the mountains and the Upper Yarra Valley.
The Teaching & Learning that happens both inside and outside our classrooms is based on latest research. Examples of this include using the Fountas & Pinnell toolkit for reading comprehension, SWST for spelling and Michael Ymer’s planning tools and resources for numeracy. Our fantastic teachers are complemented by Literacy coaches and Math Specialists. This enables us to provide a comprehensive program that caters for all students. We also have specialist teachers in Art, LOTE, ICT and P.E.
Providing a supportive, positive and caring environment is also a priority. Our School Chaplain and Primary Welfare Officer work effectively with all staff members to support the emotional needs and wellbeing of all students.
We are an environmentally friendly school with features such as a frog bog, vegetable garden, native flora area and water tanks that provide the greater proportion of water required for daily use. Our grounds are spacious and allow for both active and passive play. Features include a double basketball court sealed area, three separate play equipment areas, a grassed oval as well as extensive gardens and lawn.
Our school motto is ‘Take Pride At All Times’ – feel free to contact us at any time for a school visit to see for yourself what a great school we have.
Through a comprehensive curriculum, personalised learning, exceptional teaching and high expectations we ensure that when students graduate, all opportunities in life will be open to them. This will be provided in a safe and supportive environment that promotes life long learning.
We have two core values at Woori Yallock Primary School.
Ensure that our whole school community’s words and actions reflect high standards of personal and academic achievement and that student goals are extending all of their capabilities.
Caring for and having high regard for yourself, all others and your environment. Listening to beliefs and opinions without judgement and accepting diversity.
