Our philosophy is that children succeed at school when teachers and parents work in a mutually supportive and cooperative environment.
Arm Primary School is situated 5 km East of Lakes Entrance with an
enrolment of 175 students. The school serves the communities of Lake
Tyers Beach, Lakes Entrance and Lake Bunga which are popular tourist
areas for fishing, surfing, camping and boating.
Our school has entered a new and exciting phase with the building of a completely new facility in 2012. Over 3.85 million dollars has been spent building a state of the art educational complex. This complex integrates classrooms, library, shared spaces and administration under the one roof. A new outdoor sporting area and classrooms will be built later in 2013.

Our philosophy is that children succeed at school when teachers and parents work in a mutually supportive and cooperative environment. We also believe that open and honest communication is essential to building successful relationships between school and family. Consequently, our teachers are committed to developing links with all parents so that children are supported at school and at home. The school is the focus of the local community and actively involves all members of the school and wider community in its activities.
We believe that all children can and will achieve given support and time. At our school we are committed to developing the following skills and competencies:
–that children have high quality literacy and numeracy skills that allow success at school and provide a spring board for further education.
–that children have well developed movement and coordination skills that enable them to participate in a wide variety of sports and leisure activities.
–that children have positive self-esteem, are able to treat others with dignity and respect and are capable of building supportive relationships with others.
