Welcome from our Principal

I am the extremely proud School Principal of Yinnar Primary School. We have an exceptional school, with high expectation and a culture of learning. Our quality curriculum and learning programs are diverse and dynamic.

We are focused on meeting individual student needs and we ensure that each child reaches their full learning potential.

Our school, nestled at the foothills of the Strzelecki Ranges in Gippsland, is indeed fortunate to have a community that is supportive, knowledgeable and one that values education greatly.

At Yinnar Primary School we are all learners. We guide our younger learners to stretch their minds supporting them as they develop into resilient, reflective and resourceful life-long learners who have the capacity to learn alone or with other people.


At Yinnar Primary School we move forward together with a growth mindset empowering us to see endless possibilities and endeavour to reach our highest potential. We aim to instill in our students a belief that their intelligence can be cultivated and grown through hard work and personal discipline.


Our school promotes a set of values which empowers students to make positive contributions to the school and the wider communities.  Our students live and learn by our values: Growth Mindset, Respect, Aim High, Curiosity and Enthusiasm (GRACE). Our core values encourage our students to be enthusiastic and curious about their learning and to respect themselves as well as each other. We want our students to leave our school as learners not just achievers.


At Yinnar Primary School we provide a calm and orderly environment for our 220+ studentsAcross the whole school, we have established routines and consistency in learning and teacher protocols that ensure an environment where all students can reach their potential.

Our teachers are highly talented and dedicated.  They work in collaboration to develop a school culture that values teaching and learning.  They encourage all students to strive to achieve their best with their academic learning, including developing their social and emotional wellbeing to ensure all-around success. Our teachers are approachable, highly capable and dedicated to ensuring that every student in their care achieves the very best of their abilities.


Yinnar Primary School is a very special place to learn. We focus on providing the best possible learning experience for all. We look forward to sharing this experience with your family and warmly welcome your interest in our school.
