Learners First

Principal’s Welcome


Lenah Valley Primary School’s motto is “We Care & Give Our Best“. The core values of the school are Positive Relationships, Achievement, Resilience and Respect. These values guide the learning and actions of students, staff, parents and community members and are actively ‘lived’ by all.


Our school is known and loved by past and present students because of its atmosphere of warmth, acceptance and support and also for its highly engaging and challenging curriculum. We want every child who leaves our school to be curious and interested in their learning and sensitive and open to others’ points of view.


The school offers an extensive Launching into Learning Program for young children (birth to Kindergarten) and their families. It is here we focus on developing positive relationships, support networks, life skills, caring communities and engagement with school.


We value parent involvement in all learning programs. Our partnership with parents is of upmost importance to us. We seek their views about their child and also about broader school issues. We actively keep parents informed about our educational programs and their child’s achievements.


We have an active School Association that has achieved significant goals, including the refurbishment of all school furniture, the redevelopment of the kinder playground, the purchase of technologies for classrooms, the development of the early childhood playground and the introduction of the walking school bus. The School Association also provides a channel for parent input in relation to school decision making and oversees the fundraising of the school.


Situated on the outskirts of Hobart’s CBD, underneath the majestic Mt Wellington, our picturesque surroundings provide the perfect back-drop for quality teaching and learning.
