Our School - Principal's Message

Welcome to the Nhulunbuy Primary School website. We hope you enjoy looking through our website and getting to know more about our school and why we love it. Our school is a strong reflection of its community. Family focussed, charitable, multi-cultural, respectful and hardworking.  We are located in East Arnhem Land, the traditional land of the Yolngu. We have well established partnerships with our Yolngu families and deliver outstanding English as Additional Language programs to support these learners in our school.

There is a strong emphasis on the teaching of Literacy and Numeracy at Nhulunbuy Primary School. These key elements of learning are well supported through a balanced program that includes the arts, physical education, humanities and science. Our teachers are dedicated, energetic, skilled and caring professionals who support every child to achieve. Increasing student achievement and supporting students to succeed in their learning is what drives decision making at our school. Our community is very supportive of their children, and of the school and are involved in many ways on a daily basis. Our school has been recognised for excellence in Literacy and Numeracy achievement as well as Special Education at the NT Smart Schools Awards

It is my privilege to be principal of Nhulunbuy Primary School and work with our fantastic students, teachers, staff and parents in this unique part of the world. I hope you enjoy our website and take the opportunity to visit our school.
