Clifton Creek Primary School is a small rural school, established in 1911, which is a twenty minute drive from Bairnsdale in East Gippsland, Victoria and approximately 300 kilometres east of Melbourne.

Set in the foothills where farmland meets forest, our expansive school grounds provide an exciting outdoor play environment rich in opportunities for growth and learning. Excellent facilities include three large modular classrooms, a library, community built mudbrick art/music room and the recently refurbished kitchen with three fully equipped learning stations.  A wireless network and combination of desktop computers, laptops and iPads  ensure digital technologies are embraced as an aid to individual learning at Clifton Creek Primary School.

Like all primary schools we implement the National curriculum with a priority on laying strong foundations in Literacy and Numeracy.  However, our many special programs and school rituals along with the setting and the very low student staff ratio make Clifton Creek a unique school.  We have our secret garden, a chook pavilion, vegie gardens and frog bog.  Learning is enhanced through our own mates program and tuckshop/toastie/taco Tuesdays which are run entirely by the students. We also have our annual Kids & Blokes evening, Mother’s Day Dinner and end of year concert.   Staff participate actively in the Bairnsdale Cluster of schools and the East Gippsland Schools Network for professional purposes, working together to develop and implement shared philosophies and educational goals.
