Our school’s philosophy is based on the belief that:
every student has the ability to learn, and that this best occurs in a flexible caring, and positive climate
children are treated as individuals and encouraged to develop to their full potential intellectually, socially, emotionally and physically
children are supported in the development of self-esteem, to become confident, self-motivated learners aspiring towards a high level of achievement in all areas of the curriculum
children are encouraged to support each other and respect all those who operate within their school, and to value the contributions of parents, teachers, peers and the community.
Our mission at Darraweit Guim Primary School is to educate and support students to develop into lifelong learners by providing a nurturing environment where academic and personal excellence can be achieved.
Darraweit Guim Primary School is located approximately 63 kilometres north of Melbourne CBD. Situated in a hamlet surrounded by farmland, the school is a small rural school that enjoys a high level of involvement and interaction between students, teachers, families and the wider community.
