About Us

The Underbool Primary School Community acknowledges the Traditional Owners of Country.  We pay our respects to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island Cultures and to Elders past, present and emerging.

CURRICULUM – We have a varied curriculum at Underbool Primary, with a main focus on Literacy and Numeracy. We currently follow the Victorian Curriculum standards. Students have 1 to 1 access to computers within each classroom as well as a separate art room and well-resourced library.

Each year students take part in a two-week swimming program to improve their survival and stroke skills.  

SUNSMART – We are a Sunsmart School, therefore require broad brimmed hats year round. We have shade over the lunch area and shade sails to cover play equipment.

BARR School Underbool Primary School is on the Bushfire At Risk Register and as such is required to keep all vegetation cleared around the school. We are in the process of getting designs to upgrade our front garden with fire resistant plants. We are also including an outdoor classroom.

BUDDY SYSTEM – each year every student is allocated a Buddy to support during the year. Foundation students are buddied up with Senior students to ensure they have someone to go to and to feel safe and supported in their first year at school.

SCHOOL VALUES – Respect, Enthusiasm, Achievement & Persistence. We REAP our rewards through our school values.

Chaplaincy / Student Wellbeing at Underbool Primary School – Underbool Primary School is fortunate to have a Student Wellbeing Worker as a part of our wellbeing team. The Student Wellbeing Worker at our school is funded through the Australian Governments National School Chaplaincy and Student Welfare Program.

The Student Wellbeing Worker is a unique service that is of great value to our students, staff and parents, offering care, building the social skills of students, and encouraging responsible behaviour amongst our young people. Our Student Wellbeing Worker works as an integral part of our Wellbeing Team. Together they offer individual support, they plan and implement wellbeing programs across the curriculum and they participate in a broad range of school coordinated activities such as school excursions, camps, sporting events and assemblies. Student engagement in this Program is of a voluntary nature.

Each year our school council seeks feedback from our school community in order to enable us to review and confirm support for the Program. We also maintain a risk management plan which is reviewed annually. School procedures are followed for parents and students to seek referral, manage complaints and to opt out of the Program.
