Our school began on its original site down near the racetrack in 1880, moving onto its current site as a single classroom in 1912. While we have grown and much has changed since those early days, Tawonga Primary School remains committed to retaining its traditional atmosphere of a friendly, community-based rural school. We are still essentially a small school with a family feel. We are extremely proud of our students and responsive to their needs and the needs of their families. We strive to provide a school, which places high importance on learning and social values.
Our families come from the rural communities of Tawonga, Red Bank, Coral Bank and Kancoona, as well as the townships of Tawonga South and Mount Beauty.
