Welcome to Delacombe Primary School situated only minutes from the Ballarat CBD. We pride ourselves on our core beliefs; respect, responsibility, integrity, personal best, consideration and enjoyment. Our school was established in 1981 and we are leading the way in teaching and learning.
We encourage friends, families and new students to take a tour of the school and see what we already know... Delacombe Primary School is a great place to grow.
The Boys, Blokes, Books and Bytes (B4) project will develop a reading culture among our adolescent boys through a series of activities in the school and public library. B4 will also support the transition from primary to secondary school through the involvement of secondary and primary school boys and jointly run events and activities. These activities reflect the style of learning that appeals to boys, and they involve blokes (adult males) as positive role models and reading partners.
Did you know Delacombe Primary School has a sister school school in Nanjing, China? You can view their website at; www.njxzy.cn and find out more about our recent trip in our upcoming newsletter.
Next Saturday 14 staff, students and parents will be leaving for CHINA!
This is our very first Cultural Learning Experience to China and we are very excited!
It is anticipated we make this learning experience a two yearly event so families have time to pay it off over a longer period, increasing opportunity for participation.
This Cultural Learning Experience will further develop our sister school relationship and will help strengthen the value we place on the teaching of Chinese at Delacombe Primary School as well as provide our students, staff and parents with the opportunity to learn more about China in a safe and organised way.
