Welcome to Warragul North Primary School.

Warragul North Primary School is situated 93km south-east of Melbourne in West Gippsland, regional Victoria. Our motto, ‘Together we Learn’ is supported by the school’s purpose – to provide a happy, caring, learning environment where children can achieve their potential.


First opening in 1954 with only 90 students, Warragul North Primary School now offers 670 students, attractive and well-maintained buildings and grounds. These include quiet sitting areas, specifically designed grassed play areas and separate play equipment for Foundation, Junior, Middle and Senior students. There is a grassed oval, three sandpits, an all-weather playing surface and a running track. The BER building houses the Foundation Learning Centre. Students benefit from modern specialist facilities including a library, gymnasium, art room and music room.
