Welcome to Glen Huon Primary School
Glen Huon Primary School is a Department of Education school that has been educating children on this site since 1880. We cater for students from birth to grade 6. We offer a unique small country school experience in the picturesque Huon Valley, where children can grow and learn in a rich natural environment. We have a bush-land playground, fruit trees and vegetable gardens where the children can develop an understanding of nature and our connections to our natural environment. Children are encouraged to create and build in our beautiful bush setting which is used as a learning environment. Team challenges support the development of effective communication, an understanding of shared spaces and resources, and builds community and a sense of belonging.
Community and belonging commences with our Launching into Learning (LIL) program, Smarties, which caters for children from Birth – 5 year old and their families enabling families to engage in our supportive and friendly learning community. The Early Years Learning Framework is our early childhood curriculum. This framework focuses on, "Belonging, Being, and Becoming." The framework supports the goal that,
"All young Australians become:
- successful learners
- confident and creative individuals
- active and informed citizens."
Glen Huon Primary School has a very successful positive behaviour support program with a focus on building positive relationships across the school between all members of the community. Building of relationships is enhanced by our size as it enables students the opportunity to interact and develop strong relationships across the whole school enhancing the sense of community and belonging.
We offer quality teaching and learning with a focus on inquiry, music, PE, art, robotics, social clubs, library and much more.
Our Values: Aspiration, Growth, Courage and Respect.
Our Keys to success: Resilience, Perseverance, Getting Along, Being Organised, Performance & Attitude
We are a Nationally Accredited KidsMatter school. The core of our business is the health and well being of our students, families and staff.
