Welcome 2024 Foundation Students & Families


It is with great pleasure that we welcome all of our Foundation Year families to this exciting stage of their child’s schooling. Werribee Primary School is a supportive and diverse community, which provides an environment where all learners have the opportunity to improve and achieve. We are an inclusive community that strives for excellence. 


Our values guide the decisions and behaviours of all members of our school community.

  • Respect: we care for ourselves, others and the environment
  • Responsibility: we are accountable for our actions and our learning
  • Resilience: we learn from our challenges and maintain a positive attitude

We are looking forward to working in partnership with you and your child as they start their educational journey.


Please refer to our 2023 Foundation Transition Booklet for all the up to date information regarding your child's first year of school.
