Tallygaroopna Primary School with a population of 85 students (2018 figure) is situated 17km north of Shepparton. Whilst located in a rural setting, the school’s parent community is mainly comprised of families who work in Shepparton with very few being involved in farming. The school is extremely well equipped mainly due to a healthy injection of locally raised funds over the past ten years or more and a new BER building along with updated existing buildings. The school buildings, grounds and facilities have been improved extensively over the last 2 years due to grants from State and Federal governments. The school has a new BER building which has three learning studios and a project room. This facility has just been fitted out with new furniture and extensive IT equipment and other resources. The school also has a multi-purpose room which boasts a new kitchen and servery and two other classrooms that have been set up as a student library/reading recovery/specialist teacher room and computer lab. Off-road parking which has also been upgraded provides a safe entry and exit to the school.
Our school values are used to support our students, teachers and parents in becoming positive citizens within their community. These values are: Inclusion, Respect and Honesty. Staffing has remained stable. The current (2018) staffing is comprised of the Principal, supported by an expert teacher along with 3 other classroom staff with a grade structure of Foundation - Year 1, Year 2 - 3, Year 3 - 4 and Year 5 - 6. Our school is supported by a Business Manager who works 5 days a week and we are supported by 2 Full Time Education Support Staff.
