Harrietville Primary School, founded in 1866, is located in the picturesque mountain village of Harrietville, 25kms from Bright, at the base of Mt Hotham in North-East Victoria. The school’s aim is to provide a personalised, supportive and engaging environment, in which students strive to achieve to the best of their ability. Maintaining strong connections with the community, developing leadership skills and providing every child with every opportunity are priorities in the development of our students to become well balanced and respectful community members.



As a small rural school, Harrietville Primary School recognises the importance of shared values with both the school and local community. The values of our school are based around the primary value of Respect and are embedded in daily learning. This is demonstrated through:
