The school’s mission is to provide the highest quality education for all students to ensure they reach their maximum levels of achievement and see themselves as a part of the community and the world.

The school believes that its purpose will be achieved if students leave with confidence and integrity, a belief in their own future and a sense of empowerment in an ever changing society.


The school values a comprehensive and challenging education that will:

  • Allow all students to gain skills, knowledge and understanding necessary to participate competently and confidently in society.
  • Develop solid foundations in the Victorian Essential Learning Framework with a particular focus on Literacy and Numeracy.
  • Allow all students to access a comprehensive curriculum utilising Information Communication Technologies where possible.
  • Ensure a smooth transition from pre-school to primary school and from primary school to secondary education.

Environmental Context

Tallangatta Primary School is situated on the shores of Lake Hume, a 30 minute drive from the twin Cities of Albury Wodonga. The school grounds over look the lake and includes established trees and gardens, grassed playing areas, an adventure playground, a large paved amphitheatre, shaded eating and passive recreational areas.

The original school building was moved from Old Tallangatta in the 1950’s and is utilised as our spacious library and ICT centre. Carpeted and air conditioned classrooms are well maintained and the school has a dedicated administrative complex, visual arts and science centres.

Tallangatta Primary School boasts a dedicated and professional staff committed to providing a comprehensive and inclusive education to all students enrolled within the school.

The school is an active member of the Tallangatta P-12 Cluster which includes the eight primary schools which feed into Tallangatta Secondary College and the College itself. The cluster enables the sharing of resources and staffing expertise and joint curriculum planning.

Tallangatta Primary School offers students all that one might expect from a larger metropolitan school, yet has that unique friendly atmosphere typical of a small rural community.
