Our school is a happy place with high expectations. At Lower Plenty we are very aware of the need to make each student feels special. Our size of under 200 students enables every child to be well-known to staff and other students and provides opportunity to participate in a wider range of activities.

Whilst offering families a smaller school experience, we offer a dynamic and comprehensive curriculum, plenty of safe and spacious play areas, and a variety of extra programs.

Our school values of CARE, HONESTY, ACHIEVEMENT, RESPECT, RESPONSIBILITY and FUN are constantly reinforced and recognised throughout the year.

Teachers and students work together in modern and flexible learning spaces contained within a peaceful and attractive natural environment. Parent support is highly valued and encouraged in our community minded school.

We highly encourage prospective families to call the school on (03) 9435 2585 and arrange a personalised tour of our wonderful facilities.
