Welcome to Swansea Primary School

Swansea Primary School is a rural school, situated beside the beach on Tasmania's East Coast. Founded in 1860 as an area school, Swansea School, was previously located at the (now) East Coast Heritage Museum and moved to its present site in 1921 before becoming a primary school in 1975. Swansea Primary School is proud of its history and the quality education it has provided to local children for over one hundred and fifty years.   

Swansea Primary is a birth to Year 6 school. We have a Launching into Learning (LiL ) program, a Kinder/Prep,  Year 1/2, Year 3/4 and a 5/6 class for the first time in many years. With a current enrolment of 69 students. In 2023, Kindergarten students attend three days a week, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

Students have opportunities for leadership roles and student voice is encouraged. Our SRC and House Captains are elected and help to lead the student body by organising events and fundraisers, facilitating fitness and hosting our sports carnivals and school assemblies. With no secondary school in the township we place a great priority in preparing students for their transition to high school, wherever that may be. Our feeder high school is Triabunna Distrcit School, located just over half an hour away.

We have a strong music program, offering class music, guitar, Year 6 band and choir.

Our School Vision:

"Working together to grow through quality teaching and learning".

Our School Mission Statement at Swansea Primary School is related to our collective DECYP values of Courage, Aspiration, Growth and Respect.
