principal's welcome

Tyers Primary School is a community focused school that strives for excellence.

Welcome to Tyers Primary School website where you will find a broad range of information about our school and its programs. If you have any queries that you cannot find answers to through this website, please contact the school directly.

Established in 1879, Tyers Primary School has a long history. The school provides a caring and nurturing environment for students within a country setting that it is only five minutes drive from the large regional city of Traralgon, in the Latrobe Valley.

At Tyers Primary School our aim is to empower students to acquire, demonstrate, articulate and value the self-motivation, skills and knowledge that will support them, as life-long learners, to participate in and contribute to live a fulfilling life as a productive member of the global society. We encourage our students and families to practise the core values of the school: respect, compassion, integrity, empathy, advocacy and courage.



We provide a happy, positive and inclusive learning environment. Our class sizes are small with an average 16 students. We encourage our students to be the best they can and to support this provide a vast range of programs.

Our facilities include a dedicated library space, art room and science room as well as three large, open planned classroom areas. The school is equipped for the 21st century learning environment with interactive whiteboards, laptops and tablets as well as a range of multimedia equipment.

The buildings are surrounded by spacious playing areas which include sensory gardens, adventure playgrounds, asphalt courts, a sports oval and shaded play areas.

The school is very much a part of the local community and annually hosts the widely renowned Tyers Art Show which commenced in 1979. There are many opportunities for parents to participate in their children's education and their contribution is warmly welcomed.
