Basket Range Primary School is nestled amongst a picturesque hill setting has been the school for many generations since 1885. It was and remains to be supported by a strong community of creative and supportive families including locals and elders. Our community’s knowledge and experiences are drawn upon to enrich the Basket Range Primary School education in an intimate family-oriented atmosphere.

At our school, each of our teachers brings a wealth of experience, knowledge and understanding to the classes and to the whole school. Our commitment to small class sizes allows each child to develop their strengths and realise their potential.

Curricular
Basket Range Primary School offers both the Australian curriculum and Steiner curriculum. While different in their philosophies and pedagogies, both are designed to foster and develop children’s engagement in the world around them, can be tailored to the individual and are designed to teach children how to nurture respect for themselves, others and the environment.

The Steiner Curriculum provides a holistic approach to learning. Imagination, initiative and creativity are fostered in the child to encourage innovative thought and social consciousness throughout their life journey.

The change of season is an important and much celebrated part of the Steiner curriculum with seasonal festivals where children and families come together to acknowledge the changing of nature, climate and human activity.

The Australian Curriculum recognises the importance of building confidence and creativity within each child and encourages them to become active and informed citizens. This not only provides the children with opportunities for self-expression but also enhances communication and listening skills, encourages focus and discipline and improves memory and concentration.

Community extra-curricular

  • Garden science
