School Values


Ballarat North Primary School promotes high achievement and success for all by working with students to:

  • Strive for personal excellence in all aspects of their education
  • Develop independence, self-motivation and the ability to work cooperatively with others
  • Become critical and creative thinkers with an enjoyment of learning
  • Build resilience and develop highly effective social skills
  • Show care and respect for themselves, others and the environment
  • Develop a sense of belonging and pride in their school and an awareness of their place within a global community


To achieve our aims for students the school:

  • Provides a safe, caring and stimulating learning environment
  • Offers an engaging and challenging curriculum that caters for the diverse needs of all learners
  • Uses a range of effective and innovative teaching approaches

Our core values are: care, respect, excellence and community.
We demonstrate:

  • Community by everyone working together


We have four learning behaviours that we focus on in our classrooms and specialist programs. These learning behaviours assist students to develop positive attitudes towards learning and strategies to enable them to achieve success.

Our four learning behaviours are: Be Organised, Be Persistent, Challenge Myself and Work Together.

Ballarat North Primary School acknowledges the Wadawurrung People as the traditional custodians of the land upon which our school sits.
We pay our respects to all Aboriginal people, their culture and their elders: past, present, future and emerging.
