Welcome to Swansea Primary School
Swansea Primary is a small rural school, situated in a very picturesque coastal setting in Swansea on the East Coast of Tasmania. Our historic school was first established in 1860 (now The East Coast Heritage Museum) and moved to its present site in 1921. It has a long history of educating local children and we are proud of the successes that students from our school experience in their future. The school was an area school and then became a primary school in 1975.
Swansea Primary is a birth to grade 6 school. We have our Launching into Learning program, a Kinder/Prep, Grade 1/2/3 and a 4/5/6 class.
Students have opportunities for leadership roles and student voice is encouraged. Our SRC and House Captains are elected from grade 6, organise events, fund-raisers, run daily PE and host our monthly assemblies. With no secondary school in the town we place a great priority in preparing students for this transition.
We have a strong music program, offering class music, guitar, Grade 6 school band and choir.
A highlight of the school calendar is our annual Swansea Country Fair held on Easter Saturday.
Swansea Primary School's vision is for our students to be contributing, valuable and innovative members of society.
Our School motto is: "Strive, Persevere, Succeed".
