Welcome to South George Town Primary School
South George Town Primary School is a school of around 200 students, nestled into a bush setting in George Town. George Town is a small but vibrant community, with beautiful surroundings situated at the mouth of the Tamar River in Northern Tasmania.
Our school is a student focused environment, where we support children to be the best they can be. We are proud of our learning community and offer a rigorous academic learning curriculum, supported by opportunities for students to explore passions and interests beyond the traditional curriculum. We offer extensive Physical Education and sporting opportunities, specialist Art and Music programs, an orchestral band program with specialist tutors, learning support, leadership, Early Learning programs, social and emotional engagement programs, an exciting STEM program, and a Tasmanian Aboriginal cultural and language program for both Aboriginal and non-aboriginal students.
We are particularly proud of our ground-breaking Aboriginal language and cultural program that supports our reconciliation plan. We work closely with our Aboriginal worker and the Tasmanian Aboriginal Council to teach all of our students the Tasmanian Aboriginal language, palawa kani, as well as aspects of the culture of our first Tasmanian people. We believe that through knowledge and understanding we can forge a path together into the future whilst addressing the difficult moments in our past.
We also work closely with our Child and Family Centre to provide early learning opportunities for our Birth to 4 students as well as partnering with our high school, Port Dalrymple to ensure a smooth transition from year 6 to 7.
South George Town Primary - Vision Statement
At South George Town Primary we empower our students to participate and succeed as creative, ethical and purposeful members of our community and society.
South George Town Primary has a culture of high expectations and achievement. We support all learners by providing a safe and nurturing learning environment that immerses students in experiences that enables them to fulfil their potential. Through their involvement with a dynamic and engaging curriculum, expert teaching and support staff, appropriate resourcing and community connections, our students will become numerate, literate, inquiring, resilient and confident learners and effective communicators. Our students within this culture of learning and improvement will be able to flourish as young people and will actively engage in life-long learning and pursue life opportunities to realise their dreams and aspirations.
South George Town Primary School has four core values of Learning, Respect, Responsibility and Relationships and they underpin and support all that we do. Our values are evident throughout the school and are purposely taught as part of our Positive Behaviour Support program, as well as being deeply embedded within our culture of learning and improvement.
