Nanneella Estate Primary School (No. 3708) is situated in the rural district between the city of Echuca and the township of Rochester.

Our school offers a challenging seven-year program in English, Mathematics, Science, Technology, Health and Physical Education, The Arts, The Humanities, Critical & Creative Thinking, Ethical Capabilities, Personal and Social Capabilities and Languages (Indonesian). To facilitate teaching practice some key learning reas are combined into wider areas of studies referred to as integrated curriculum units.

The Victorian Equity Program (Isolated Rural children component) and CAP (Country Area Projects) allows for development and enrichment of services and activities in cultural, technological and personal development areas.

Our school is fortunate to be able to access part time teachers. This has allowed us to run specialist programs, in art and music, Indonesian as a language, science and more importantly an individual reading programs for children who need extra assistance.

A feature of Nanneella Estate Primary School is the very strong parent support for, and participation in, the life of the school. The parents are very protective of the existence and independence of the school and as a group, respond to requests for assistance and develop their own initiatives to add to the quality of the school environment and its programs.

Nanneella Estate Primary School clusters with other schools in our area to access additional activities such as sport, physical education activities, camps and academic and cultural experiences to provide outlets for additional opportunities for peer group social interactions. This clustering also allows for teachers to enhance collegiate contact. The six schools in the Campaspe Cluster are Elmore Primary, Goornong Primary, Raywood Primary, Colbinabbin Primary, OLSH (Our Lady of Sacred Heart Elmore) and Nanneella Estate Primary School.

Our school consists of two classrooms, a multi-use classroom, a staffroom, modern toilets with disabled facilities and an administrative area. Spacious grounds with excellent facilities, including shade area, basketball & netball court, the forest, the gazebo and extensive paving and lawns.
