Our school values and promotes partnerships with parents and the wider school community. Key events on our yearly calendar include:
* ANZAC Day Service
* Special Persons Day celebrations (Mothers/Fathers/Grandparents/Carers) held in May and September
* Kinder to school Community Connections Program
* Remembrance Day Service

We also have a strong connection with the One and All program, as well as working closely with Echuca Specialist School on a number of inclusive activities.
Cross Age Interaction
We have four house groups, Burnanga, Barra, Djarring, and Gurburr. We plan activities regularly that require these houses to work co-operatively as a team. We also have a buddy program that gives older children in the school an opportunity to mentor and support a younger buddy.
Information Technology and Communication
The use of technology is embedded in all teaching and learning sessions. Students have access to interactive TVs, laptops, ipads, desktop computers and digital cameras.
Health and Physical Education
All students participate in daily physical activity and a structured program is provided for all year levels. We conduct school swimming, athletics and cross-country carnivals. Support is provided for students who participate in interschool, regional and state sporting events.
We have a school library and students are encouraged to borrow on a weekly basis. Each year we participate in the Premier’s Reading Challenge.

* Student Action Group (Grade 1- 6)
