Welcome to Ararat West Primary School

Acknowledgment of Country

We would like to acknowledge Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander and Dajab Wurrung people as the first peoples and Traditional Owners and custodians of the land and waterways on which we live. We honour and pay our respects to Elders past and present, and the Elders from other communities who may be here today.


At Ararat West Primary School we are committed to providing a dynamic learning environment that is caring, challenging and equips children with the skills and desire to succeed in their personal journey.

The following values are central to the life of our school and how all members of the school community should conduct themselves:


We are Respectful:

We respect our self, others, the school and the community.


We are Resilient:

We keep trying and work through challenges.


We are Aspiring:

We always do our best and encourage others with positive behaviours.

We pride ourselves on building ongoing relationships with our extended community, students and their families with the overarching goal to, as a team, develop the whole student.

With the school being set amongst native flora and large grounds provide students with the opportunity engage and enjoy their education in a naturally rich setting. We are on the cutting edge with our teaching philosophy and curriculum content. Students and teachers operate in Collaborative Learning Spaces and engage in teaching and learning activities that evoke passion and inspiration.


We encourage all prospective families to come in and take a tour today.
