About our School

We would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we grow, play and learn, the Wurundjeri people. We pay our respects to their Elders past and present.


At Tinternvale Primary School, we are all very proud of our modern, attractive, air conditioned buildings and our beautifully maintained gardens and playground.


We strive to foster a stimulating learning environment that is safe and supportive for all students.  We believe that all students should be encouraged to develop their individual personalities, interests and abilities so they:

  • Attain positive self-esteem and self-confidence
  • Become self-motivated and independent life-long learners
  • Take responsibility for themselves and their education
  • Can develop leadership skills and experience
  • Are willing to take risks and to learn from their mistakes and their successes
  • Can work co-operatively with their peers and other members of the school community
  • Develop healthy relationships with all people in the community
  • Are tolerant, respectful and appreciative of people and their differences.

The staff at Tinternvale work as a team to deliver the best educational and supportive environment possible to all students.  Professional Development for staff and strong teamwork are key ingredients in the school culture as they ensure that staff have the skills and knowledge to enable them to deliver a high quality education for all students. In planning for the social, educational and personal success of every student, Tinternvale is recognised for its commitment to Student Welfare. We are proud of the many achievements of our students, past and present, and their development as members of the wider community.


It is our aim to continue the growth and development of Tinternvale Primary School and enhance its reputation and performance.  We extend a very warm welcome to all members of the school community.  Please come and visit our school and find out what makes it such a wonderful place to be.
