Tarwin Lower Primary School is learner-centred and has a strong emphasis on individualised and small group instruction. Student self-identity, participation, and expression is enhanced.
Our multi-grade teaching allows younger students exposure to lessons and expectations of older students. Through the Buddy Reading program, the cross-age mixing of students gives the junior students an opportunity to receive personalised tutoring from the senior students.
Timetabling is more flexible in our school, allowing classes to take advantage of valuable educational opportunities as they arise. Incursions are easily and regularly integrated to the timetable, reflecting our view that learning does not only occur within the four walls of the classroom.
