About the School

St Ita’s Primary school was opened in 1989 and is located in the West Gippsland town of Drouin, approx 140km east of Melbourne. It is supported by the Drouin Catholic community to assist parents in the education and formation of their Christian values. 

At St Ita’s Primary School we aim to provide an environment where children feel good about themselves and achieve to the best of their ability.  We encourage our students to be active, independent learners with sound values that are developed in a school community that demonstrates our Catholic identity based on the Gospels and teachings of the Church. 

The staff at St Ita’s Primary School are dedicated professionals who are committed to instilling the message that learning is a life-long process. Our curriculum is designed to meet the individual needs of all students whilst encouraging each to develop towards his/her full potential. 

At St Ita’s Primary School we welcome parents into our learning community and value their significant contribution to the education of their children.  We promote open and honest communication and provide development opportunities for parents to enhance their role as the prime educators of children. 

Our classrooms are modern and appealing and we have a well-resourced Information and Communication Technologies program that permeates through all curriculum areas. St Ita’s has trained Literacy and Numeracy intervention teachers and teacher aides to assist children who need extra support in these crucial areas. We offer Reading Recovery in Grade 1, Rainbows Reading (reading intervention) in Grades 2 to 6 and we are an EMU (mathematics intervention) pilot school.
