Why Briagolong Primary School

Briagolong Primary is situated in a small rural township at the foot of the Great Dividing Range, 30 kilometres from Sale in Gippsland. The school takes in a mixture of modern and historical building facilities. The school is set on picturesque and spacious grounds. Distinctive physical features of BPS are the locally funded and built mudbrick art room / kitchen and a vegetable garden.

Specialist programs include art, music, and health and Physical Education, which includes cooking and gardening.

The school offers a varied and comprehensive curriculum that includes a sound arts focus, a student leadership program through year 6 and a Student Action Team (SAT). Parent involvement is actively encouraged and a number of parents and community members assist in classes and on sports days.

The school provides intervention programs including Systematic Synthetic Phonics (SSP), Reading and small groupings. These approaches provide individualized support for students with additional learning needs. The school also provides extension activities through differentiation that allow students capable of achieving above expected levels to be challenged and extended.

The school has an agreed set of school values that students can recite readily, which are Resilience, Integrity, Ambition. Awards are presented to students at weekly assemblies focusing on positive behaviours and attitudes linked to each value.

Other programs such as the Earn and Learn, Human Powered Vehicle (Biannually), the School Production (Biannually), Tournament of the Minds and participation in the Anzac Day and Remembrance Day ceremonies encourage student engagement.

A small group of students regularly contribute to the publication of “Redgum Review”, the community magazine. Transition into school is very effective. The school has close links with the Briagolong Kindergarten and regular activities are organized to ensure current and future students have regular contact. The majority of students transition to Maffra Secondary College whose transition programs are very comprehensive.
