Welcome to Swifts Creek P-12 School
Swifts Creek P-12 School is located in the high country of Far East Gippsland, Victoria. Our school was formed from the merger of Swifts Creek Primary School and Swifts Creek Secondary College at the start of the 2010 school year. We provide for the education of children from Prep through to Year 12. This ensures there is a seamless educational pathway for each student, and maximises use of resources to enrich each student’s school experience.
The school operates on two sites; Flagstaff Campus caters for students in Prep to Year 6, and Tambo Campus caters for students in Years 7 to 12, with some movement of both staff and students across the two campuses. The school has a student population of approximately 130, with around 70 of these based at the Tambo Campus. Students from Omeo Primary School are welcomed into Swifts Creek P-12 School in Year 7.
The school has a rich array of assets to enhance student learning. These include providing opportunity for technology enabled learning, small class sizes, interactive whiteboards, video conferencing facilities and diverse learning spaces to cater for education in the 21st century. The school has a culture of making its resources available to the community, and shares a 25 metre swimming pool, gym and squash courts with the community.
The school offers all students in Years Prep to 10 a sound and comprehensive education in all domains of the Victorian Curriculum. We also offer a diversity of programs at the senior levels, including Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE), VCAL (Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning) and Vocational Education Training (VET), enabling the school to meet the needs of individual students.
