Our School

Learning

Children are drawn from the surrounding Westernport Bay area and its coastal villages to attend classes from Grade Prep to Grade 6 at Somers Primary School. Currently, our School enjoys the status attributed to small community schools, with our enrolment gradually increasing to a present 230 children.

Our Story

Somers Primary School is nestled in a protected native bush setting in the centre of the coastal village of Somers on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula. Our School has prospered on this site since 1956, having been established on another nearby site in 1930.

Specialist programs in Languages Other Than English (German) and The Arts (Music and Visual Arts) are offered to all students. Support programs for specific children are also offered within the Literacy key learning areas where Reading Recovery and Bridging the Gap operate. We have also introduced a program called Enrichment and Enhancement.

We believe that the success of each child is a result of the close partnership between students, staff, parents and the school community. Whilst the future will bring changes to Somers Primary School, we will continue to offer a safe and caring learning environment, where all children will be treated fairly and can work to achieve their full potential.

Our teachers

Our School programs have been developed to foster self-esteem, confidence, independence and cooperative skills. The curriculum centres on the eight key learning areas with emphasis on Literacy and Numeracy.
