Natte Yallock Primary School was first opened in 1874. It is a small rural school in central Victoria, Australia. The school serves a farming community and nearby small towns. It is 30 kilometres west of Maryborough and 20 kilometres north of Avoca. The school is very well presented with large modern, bright classrooms and undercover areas. The children have a spacious playground area in which to play including a synthetic grassed tennis/netball/basketball court and an extensive undercover area. The school bus service collects children from a radius of 15km. Natte Yallock Primary School is a part of the Pyrenees Cluster of schools.
Being a small rural school, we are able to offer personalised learning in all subject areas and the children are encouraged to explore their strengths and interests. The School prides itself on integrating ICT into its programs and being able to offer students 1:1 access to iPads and laptops.
The children enjoy a wide curriculum of comprehensive core subjects English, Mathematics and Science as well Visual Art, Music, ICT, PE, Kitchen Gardens and Japanese. The Mobile Area Resource Centre (M.A.R.C) van visits fortnightly and delivers our humanities curriculum of History and Geography.
Children also have the opportunity to experience a wide variety of sporting activities through collaboration with our Pyrenees Cluster of Small Schools including basketball, swimming, athletics, badminton, golf and our school camping program.
The Pyrenees Cluster of Small Schools come together once a fortnight to deliver specialised lessons in Music, Science, PE and Art. These days are fabulous opportunities to diversify the social groups and implement the Resilience, Rights and Respectful Relationships program.
