Welcome to Yea Primary School

Craig Irvine


Hello and thanks for visiting the Yea Primary School website. My name is Craig Irvine and it is my great pleasure to have been appointed the new Principal of Yea Primary School after Debbie George’s retirement after more than 12 years as Principal of Yea Primary School.


Yea Primary School is a special place that has served the community of Yea and the surrounding region for well over 100 years. It is a privilege to work with our students, staff and families to make our school the very best it can be.


At Yea Primary School we work together to provide a safe, nurturing learning environment that is grounded in positive relationships so that every student can thrive and reach their maximum potential. We focus on developing the ‘whole’ student – emotionally, socially and academically. We appreciate and nurture each student as unique individuals with different interests and learning styles.


We provide an engaging curriculum that is tailored to the needs of each student. Our passionate teachers ensure our students grow in confidence and capabilities and develop skills for the future. We use innovative techniques, rich resources, research based and proven instructional practices to promote student learning.


We embed and live our school values of respect, integrity, persistence, collaboration, creativity and empathy. The school embraces the community and is well served by a number of community members of the who volunteer their own time, expertise and resources to offer opportunities and experiences for our students. There are many opportunities for parent and community involvement at the school if you are interested and we would be thrilled to have you become a part of our school community.


Please contact the school if you have any questions or queries.


With warm regards,


Craig Irvine
