Welcome to our school and please enjoy your visit.

St. Georges Rd. Primary School has been servicing the community for 65 years and is dedicated to developing every child for a bright and successful future. Located in central Shepparton, our school is highly regarded for our well-rounded, inclusive programs and accomplishments in student learning.

We are very proud of the rich cultural blend within our school community with families from Anglo-Saxon, indigenous and language backgrounds other than English. Our school is well-known for our inclusive curriculum and specialist programs which showcase our diversity. We aim to aspire and develop leaders of the future.

We value the contribution of our parent and wider community and encourage involvement in our programs, working alongside our teachers and being actively involved in the life of the school. We have a clear focus of placing our students at the centre of all that we do at St. Georges Rd Primary School and as a result there are outstanding educational programs and opportunities in place to develop and challenge all of our students.

The staff is an energetic and committed team with a vast array of talents and interests that enhance our school programs significantly. Our school is distinguished by a commitment to children’s welfare, incorporating a safe and supportive school environment where all students can thrive, learn and grow.

We are very proud of our student’s continued achievements in academic, sporting and performing arts pursuits, and our school’s culture of tolerance and respect.

Our school values- ‘Respect, Responsibility, Pride and Excellence’ underpin all we do at St Georges Rd Primary School; and as principal, I am proud to say – as a school community, we live our values.
