Inverloch/Kongwak Primary School
works with parents and the community to provide a positive learning culture and strong foundation to formal education which will support all students to reach their academic, social, emotional, creative and physical potential. We aim to nurture active citizens who have an awareness of, and concern for their social and natural environment. We value Getting Along, and the development of Confident, Persistence, Organisation and Emotional Resilience.
Inverloch is situated on the coast of South Gippsland approximately 140 kilometres south-east of Melbourne. Over the past few years the Inverloch enrolment has grown steadily to reach 370 this year, and continued growth is predicted. In 2015 we are operating with 17 classes, with all children having timetabled Physical Education, Art, Music, Spanish and Library sessions. Inverloch/Kongwak Primary School encourages and values the contribution parents make to the school. We are a Kids Matter School and this year have also joined the Better Buddies Program.
Situated 14 kilometres inland from Inverloch. Kongwak Primary School operates under a hub-annexe arrangement with Inverloch Primary School, with both schools combining for sporting events, camps and visiting arts/cultural activities. The school is well resourced with three classrooms, a small multipurpose room, interactive whiteboards, a greenhouse, vegetable garden and sporting equipment. As the school is the focal point of this small rural community, a very high degree of parent and community participation and involvement occurs throughout all aspects of the school activities.
