About the school
Irymple South Primary School was founded in 1911, and is located in a semi-rural community, nine kilometres from Mildura. It is the only public building to identify the Irymple South area. The school has a current population of 375 students who are drawn mainly from surrounding horticultural properties and low density housing. Irymple South Primary School is set in attractive and spacious grounds with excellent sporting facilities.
There is a strong sense of community within the school. Family support at Irymple South is very strong and all families are encouraged to participate in a wide variety of school programs.
Irymple South is recognised for its innovative environmental programs. The school takes great pride in being at the forefront of environmental initiatives with class worm farms, vegetable gardens, chickens, a fruit orchard, water tanks and solar panels.
Irymple South PS has been providing education to the community for over 100 years and a strong sense of community pride has always been a key feature of the school. There is a long history of parents, students and staff working as teams to provide the best possible education for our students.
We are proud of our school and the high standard of education and facilities we provide for our students. Teachers have high expectations of students and are committed to quality professional development, which means we are always exploring current research, thinking and new developments in education. Teachers are constantly reflecting on their own teaching and ensuring that they are implementing current best practice in the school’s teaching and learning programs.
I invite you to visit us. You will find our school has a warm and welcoming environment and that our students are supported to be the best they can be.
