About Us - School Profile
Alvie Consolidated School formed in 1957 by the amalgamation of many small district schools. Past students remember Alvie Consolidated School as an important part of their lives, proudly supporting and serving local rural communities.
Today our school continues to play an important role within the district. Being a small school, we maintain a healthy community minded culture, and experience higher levels of wellbeing. I strongly believe multi-age classrooms are highly effective places to learn. As a member of our school community, we invite you to actively participate when you can.
Our beautiful 14 acres of school grounds provides a wonderful canvas for children to learn. It consists of two playgrounds, two tennis courts including netball rings, a football / cricket field, a soccer field, a basketball court, extensive rose gardens, vegetable gardens, orchards, chook pens, 4-acre push play area, relaxing courtyards and shaded grass areas. We have a large multipurpose room, commercial kitchen, dedicated music / multimedia room, a large double Grades 4-6 classroom, a large early year’s centre catering for a Grades P-1 and Grades 2-3 students. We are very well equipped with resources to support all learning needs.
Our current staffing profile consists of; 1 Principal, 3 Classroom Teachers, 4 Education Support staff, 2 office staff and 1 Groundsman. Additionally, we have a range of visiting teachers that include, Art &Design Teacher, Library Teacher, PE Teachers and Music Teachers.
We design our learning programs with the whole child at the centre. This means that we equally address three key elements (1) the child’s social and emotional wellbeing; (2) the dispositions and skills required to be a successful learner; (3) the Victorian Curriculum
Over the next three years our community will extend on our nature based developmental playground, build a mountain bike track, cross country running and cultural walking tracks, a sculpture park, Frisbee golf course, citrus garden, indigenous garden, berry garden and the construction of a bore for watering the sports fields. We are also working with DET to assist with upgrading school facilities.
