3/4 Swimming Program

The 3/4 Swimming Program will be getting underway on Monday 25th- Friday 29th May.  Please ensure students have the necessary equipment packed each day, wearing their bathers to school to ensure a quick start.

Environmental Team

Enviro Team


Last week the Enviro team went to Lake Ranfurly to look at plant species growing in the area and issues – environmental or man-made.

By the end of the year this team hopes to have an app developed as a Field Guide to Lake Ranfurly. It was a pleasure to take the students.


Sam Walters MRCC Biodiversity Officer is leaving our area. Sam has been a mentor for our students for a number of years and has worked closely with our school to implement environmental programs. We wish Sam well in her new career. We will miss her in our community partnerships as she has had a wonderful rapport with our students. All the best Sam!

Cross Country


Well done to all of our competing runners at the Cross Country event held on Monday.  All students gave it their best and made the school proud with the way they conducted themselves.

A huge congratulations goes to Margaret McDonald, who seems to be having a stellar year!  Margaret will be invited to represent our region at St. Arnaud later this year after finishing in the top 10 of her age group today.

Special thanks go to our supportive spectators. Also to Mr. Geoff John, and our two student teachers, Jess and Kirah, for accompanying our students

Students will sit tests on Language Conventions (Tuesday 12th May), Writing (Tuesday 12th May), Reading (Wednesday 13th May) and Numeracy (Thursday 14th May).

For further information please see the flyer sent home with all students in Years Three and Five.

Can You Help!

In 2022, Mildura West Primary School will turn 100 years old. A lot of our school history is stored in boxes and cartons, and even more is out in the community. We are looking for a team of volunteers to meet on a regular basis to sort and catalogue historical items, and source photos and memorabilia from the community. Our School Librarian will assist the group with a workspace, access to a scanner and printer. If you are interested volunteering in any way, please contact the school office on 03 5023 1336.
