Balnarring Primary School is located 70 km south-east of Melbourne. The school’s mission statement is to develop competent, curious learners who strive to do their best and both respect and care for themselves, others and the environment. The school employs a specialist science teacher to devise and deliver a science program in a dedicated science room from Foundation to Year 6. The school community highly values its wetlands and sustainability area. These provide rich contexts for students to actively learn about sustainability and demonstrate their care for the environment.
