Principal's Message

Welcome to the Nar Nar Goon Primary School website. Our school is well known for its happy, safe and vibrant learning environment and is characterised by strong community support and involvement.

 

Our School Values of Respect, Responsibility, Honesty, Persistence and Excellence are clearly practised and actioned every day.

Situated within a short ten minute drive East of Pakenham, Nar Nar Goon Primary caters for students from Foundation to Year 6. Our professional, supportive and innovative teaching team along with our highly skilled support staff take pride in delivering an excellent education in a warm and nurturing environment. We have a strong commitment to a personalised approach to learning in all curriculum areas with a special emphasis on Literacy, Numeracy, Learning Technologies and Science to ensure the best possible outcomes for all students. Our specialist subjects include  Auslan, Physical Education, STEM and Visual Arts.

Nar Nar Goon Primary School has open, light and well organised new classrooms and facilities, and as a result, we are very fortunate to enjoy teaching and learning in bright, stimulating and flexible learning spaces, incorporating the latest in technology. Our classrooms are calm and students work with purpose and engagement.

Our school has a strong welfare program incorporating “Play Is The Way”. This Program engages the children in fun and interactive games and activities in which they are required to cooperate with others and solve problems as they arise. The golden rule and consistent message that is conveyed in all classes is “To treat others as you would like to be treated”.

Looking after our community's wellbeing is important to us, and we explicitly teach positive ways to manage feelings and situations that challenge us. Our school is also affiliated with Dogs Connect, and we have a wellbeing dog, Rosie the greyhound on site a few days a week to help students build connections. 

 

We are also a lead school in the Respectful Relationships Program supporting both our own community and leading our local network of schools. Student wellbeing and personal growth is supported and nurtured. We aim to develop students who are successful in all areas of life. 

 

Some say you can recognise a Nar Nar Goon Primary student out of uniform as much as in it; such is the respect and manners they exhibit in their everyday life.

 

I am proud to be the Principal of Nar Nar Goon Primary School and am excited about the direction our school is taking into the future. If you would like to know more about our school you are most welcome to call or email the office staff or make an appointment to speak to me personally.

I do hope you enjoy exploring our website further to learn more about our wonderful school.
