PARENTS AND FRIENDS
Harrietville Primary School is very fortunate to have a highly motivated and effective Parents and Friends Association. They support the school through fundraising: Harrietville Annual Duck Race, AMTRA (Australian Motorcycle Trail Riders Association) lunch provision, stalls and raffles at local events. In collaboration with School Council, they form connections and insights into the school community.
Current P&F Association:
President: Eleanor Pierce
Vice President: Tom Hinchliffe
Harrietville Primary School offers Kinder Club twice a Term, for children aged from birth to five years. Sessions are run within the school setting and are based on the Early Years Framework and consist of literacy-based activities around a book that older students have shared. This encourages multi-age mentoring and networking, and promotes a caring and nurturing culture within the school.
Parents are invited to bring along morning tea for their child, to have at recess with the students.
The Alpine Cluster of schools connects our 4 local small schools. This partnership enables learning, sport, cultural and social links to be developed amongst a broader range of staff and students. The schools compete in sporting carnivals (Athletics, Swimming), as well as camps and excursions. Local Principals in the cluster aim to meet once per term to enable collegiate support and sharing of ideas.
The Alpine Cluster of schools include:
Harrietville Primary School
Wandiligong Primary School
Porepunkah Primary School
Bright P-12 College
Myrtleford P-12 College
