Profile of Tammin Primary School
Our VISION at Tammin Primary School is to make a difference in the lives of our students.
Our PURPOSE is to develop each child’s social, physical, creative and academic potential in an environment where they can maximise educational opportunities, enjoy a full range of social and cultural activities and participate as responsible members of society.
Tammin Primary School has 72 students enrolled from Kindergarten to Year 7 in the year 2008. Students attending the school come from within the Tammin Shire. There is a mix of children from both farm and town and the school aims to have strong links with the Parents and the community. School Community members and Staff at Tammin are committed to Rural Education.
Students study the eight learning areas appropriate to their ability level. Our current focus is on Numeracy, Literacy, Health and Well-Being. Specialist teaching and learning programs are delivered by highly qualified and experienced teachers in Physical Education and French. Students enjoy the use of up-to-date equipment and teaching/learning practices in these areas. French lessons are delivered via the School of Isolated and Distance Education from year 3-7. Students complete these lessons via individual online tutoring using computers and headsets.
Tammin Primary School runs a Rural Integrated Program (RIP) in the early years of education. We offer a full time five-year-old and two days a week four-year-old program.
A substantial covered assembly area provides a meeting venue for school assemblies and a range of extra curricula activities including visiting performers and exhibitions. A well resourced and automated library and a Computing Room fitted with laptops and desktop computers are focal points of the school.
