Eskdale Primary School is a safe, caring, inclusive and accepting school community where children learn to be the best version of themselves by exploring their interests, developing their potential and taking pride in their achievements as they enjoy building the friendships, memories and skills for happiness and success in life. we value Respect, Kindness, Resilience and Striving to Achieve.
Eskdale Primary School is located 60 kilometres east of Wodonga in the picturesque Mitta Valley and is an essential hub of the community. The school has a long and proud history of serving this rural community, which dates back to 1877. Currently 5th generation students attend the school. The school setting in the isolated Mitta Valley of North East Victoria presents opportunities and challenges for the education of its community. Our diverse curriculum provides opportunities that are not normally available in a rural and remote location. A comprehensive Music, Visual Art and Science curriculum are provided through the employment of specialist teachers. In 2018 the school incorporated an extensive STEM program into the curriculum, taught by classroom teachers. Access to a variety of sports has been made available through the Sporting Schools grants. Challenges include the provision of adequate, reliable technological access, the challenges of declining enrolments associated with the demography of a farming community, isolation from multi-cultural Australia and the tyrannies of distance and costs to address isolation issues.
