An Australian Government Local Schools Community Grant allowed us to install amazing Netball & Basketball rings on our courts outside the gym.  The children love it!



Greetings from the School Council and staff at Daylesford, Drummond and Yandoit Primary Schools.

Our website is designed as a way to both communicate with our community and to provide information to people who don’t know us just yet

Across our schools we are committed to ensuring that our students have an opportunity to participate in a stimulating and nurturing learning environment. Our students are able to experience variety and success through the diversity of our programs, the enthusiasm of our staff and the support of our wider school community.

It is deliberate intention to pay attention to not only developing the academic skills of our students but to also meet them at their point of need socially and emotionally. Collaboration and relationships are the threads that are woven through all we do. Our accreditation as a respectful relationships lead school is testimony to the culture we have created.

Our Assistant Principal Trudi Blick and I are proud to work alongside the students families and staff of Daylesford, Drummond and Yandoit. So if you have any questions comments or feedback please do not hesitate to contact us via phone 53482480 or email daylesford.ps@education.vic.gov.au

Feel free to browse our web pages which will provide you with a snapshot of life at our schools.

All the best

Dear Parent/Carers,

Daylesford, Drummond and Yandoit Primary Schools are looking forward to another great year of teaching and learning and would like to advise you of the parent payment arrangements for 2021.

As per Department of Education instructions, this letter is being sent out to Parents/Carers, six weeks prior to the end of term 4.

Our schools make every effort to keep the cost of items and activities to a minimum and affordable for all Parents/Carers. By purchasing student requisites in bulk, we can pass the savings onto Parents/Carers. This also ensures that all children have the correct and the same materials.

Financial Support for Families

Our schools understand that some families may experience financial difficulty and offers a range of support options, including:

For a confidential discussion about accessing these services, or if you would like to discuss alternative payment arrangements, contact Deanne Cooper, Business Manager, 5348 2480.
