Welcome to Triabunna District School

Hello and thank you for visiting our website. 

On behalf of our staff, students and wider school community I extend our warmest welcome. 

Triabunna District School is situated in spacious grounds at the gateway to the township of Triabunna. The school has a combination of modern and historic buildings overlooking beautiful Spring Bay and majestic Maria Island in the distance.

Our school has a long history; the Triabunna State School being continuously open since 1863. With many modifications over the years, the school now provides a co-educational facility for K- 6 students and a Birth to 4 program for children from our township and for 7-12 students from across our Municipality including Swansea, Little Swanport, Triabunna, Orford and Buckland. 

There are approximately 155 students in the school, equally divided across the Primary and Secondary sections. Our K–12 facility provides a unique context where whole school approaches have been adopted to ensure the best learning opportunities to meet the educational needs of all students. 

Our vision is underpinned by the Department Of Education values of Aspiration, Growth, Resilience and Courage as well as our school values of Respect, Resilience and Growth.  We encourage creative thinking and work to develop problem solving skills.  We strive to develop preparedness for life-long learning that fosters a positive attitude by valuing and celebrating achievement in its many forms.

These aims and objectives can only be achieved by establishing close, three-way partnerships between parents, staff and students. As such, we welcome our new students and their whole family to our school community and look forward to our ongoing collaborative work that ensures that learners are first – connected and inspired.
