Dumbleyung Primary School is a small, community-oriented school with 39 students from K-6. Students and staff are well-known to each other and feel a sense of belonging and pride in their school.

As a small school, we take advantage of opportunities not available to bigger schools and our students enjoy a range of experiences that enhance their primary education. Our small staff support each other to achieve great things for our students and all contribute to a positive and inclusive school culture.

The School has a very active Parents and Citizens (P&C) Association as well as supportive School Council. The school staff and community have formed a collaborative partnership to ensure a positive learning environment, allowing for optimum outcomes for all students.
