Welcome to Teesdale Primary School

Welcome

 

On behalf of the staff at Teesdale Primary School, we would like to welcome you to our school.

 

Teesdale Primary School is located in the centre of a growing rural community and offers the advantages of a rural lifestyle. The student population is quickly building towards 200 students. 

 

A feature of the school is the iconic original 1878 brick building.  The school also has a unique mud-brick multi-purpose centre, which was built by the community and is used for the Outside School Hours Care and the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program.  Our vegetable garden is purpose designed and emulates the shape of Blue Tongued Lizard and the Southern Cross.

 

At Teesdale Primary School we have the enthusiasm and commitment to work as a team to realise the goals of our Strategic Plan, meeting the needs of every child and challenging each one to reach their highest potential.
