We model and demonstrate integrity taking every opportunity to be strong role models in the community. We have high expectations – we try our hardest and do our best. We take responsibility for ourselves, understanding that our attitudes and behaviours have an impact on the people around us.

OUR CURRICULUM

As a Victorian government school we deliver the Victorian Curriculum. We seek to do this by using well planned lessons based on analysis of our students’ assessments. We also seek to incorporate the unique characteristics of each campus and community into the teaching and learning programs offered.

Our future plans include the creation of hubs at each campus which all of the Peranbin PC students will access during intercampus activities.

Baddaginnie and Swanpool –  an Art Hub

Strathbogie – Environmental Science Hub

Violet Town – STEM Hub (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics)

We seek to strengthen links with each community to deliver a unique curriculum and become the school of choice for families.
