Tungamah is a small agricultural township with a population of about 300 people on the Boosey Creek, 30 kilometers south west of Yarrawonga in North East Victoria. Most students are drawn from within the town itself; however, two bus routes also bring around 20 students from the nearby rural communities of Burramine South, Lake Rowan and St. James.
The school was established in 1880 in Barr Street and moved to its present Tower Street site in 1972. In addition to the complex of three classrooms, an administration block and library, the site includes a 25 metre swimming pool which is available to the general public outside school hours.
The school also consists of a large Outdoor Learning Center. This facility was built using funding from the Building Education Revolution initiative.
At Tungamah Primary School we promote and actively encourage strong, positive relationships. Our values program Tunga Kids are Friendly Kids and BounceBack aim to explicitly teach and engage students in conversations about being resilient and bouncing back from situations.
Tungamah Lions Breakfast Club Mornings
On Thursday mornings from 8am onwards, the Tungamah Lions Club run our morning breakfast program. Ybonne and Carol come along every Thursday morning and supply the students with toast and juice.
We are so lucky to have this program running and we would like to thank the Tungamah Lions Club for providing our school with this program.
Breakfast is one of the most important things kids can have each morning to help them learn and focus on their work at school.
The students enjoy this program very much and we once again thank the Lions Club for running this important program.
Parents are also welcome to come along and with their child and have some breakfast if they would like too.
Foundation - Grade 2
Today Miss Purcell and the junior students have been working hard on their literacy skills. The students worked in groups to expand on their vocabulary using a picture dictionary. The students will be using their dictionaries to help with their grammar, writing and spelling skills everyday. The students may take home their dictionary with their reader satchel but it must be returned everyday to assist with our literacy tasks.
