Moriac Primary School has an enrolment of approximately 200 children within four collaborative learning communities. We have a strong sense of community and the school is firmly entrenched within the Moriac township.

Moriac Primary School was established in 1922, built by the Moriac Progress Association on land donated by the Deppeler Family.  This origin epitomizes the sense of community partnership that underpins the success of Moriac Primary School. 


At Moriac Primary School we value a collaborative learning approach that places the child at the centre of learning and teaching. In order for our students to become engaged citizens who can strengthen the wellbeing of their society,

we place the utmost importance on the cognitive, physical, creative, social and emotional development of all members of the school.

We endeavour for our students to be EXCEPTIONAL, RESPONSIBLE and RESPECTFUL.

EXCEPTIONAL by putting their personal best effort into their learning

RESPONSIBLE for their own learning, actions and behaviours.


RESPECTFUL of themselves and others.


We aim to implement a rigorous curriculum that ensures our students are highly literate and numerate. We aim to develop critical thinkers and problem solvers; who are kind-hearted and creative, and have a lifetime love of learning.

We strive to ensure that our students develop a positive sense of self-worth, confidence and wellbeing, through a focus on teaching them the values of resilience, respect, empathy, integrity and responsibility.

We want our students to be active citizens who are globally aware. Who understand, value and care for the environment and society we live in, and embrace the cultural diversity that makes up Australia.
