Natimuk Primary School is unique as one of the last small schools west of Horsham. Natimuk is a rural township with a population of about 450. The school draws its students from the town and the surrounding farming district and is regarded as the hub of the community. Enrolments fluctuate around 30 students, which enables Natimuk Primary School to focus on the individual development of students with a strong emphasis on student health, well being and safety.
Our school community reflects the diversity of the Natimuk community which has been strongly influenced by its proximity to the famous landmark, Mt. Arapiles. Rock climbing and the Outdoor Adventure Industry are dominant and attract world class climbers and schools from all over Victoria for camping, climbing and leadership courses. Even with generations of farmers and professionals, the community has been labelled ‘alternative’ due to the artistic flavour and lifestyle it brings. Local expertise in rock climbing and the arts have been of great benefit to Natimuk school and our students enjoy regular rock-climbing outings and have contributed to award winning animations, National art exhibitions and the bi-annual Nati Frinj Festival.
The participation and support of parents and the local community are fundamental to the continuing life of the school and our open door policy helps to ensure ongoing positive staff, student and parent relationships.
