Farrer Primary School

Welcome to Farrer Primary School

Farrer Primary School is a thriving learning community in which teachers and families work in partnership to provide opportunities that foster creativity, deep thinking and skill development. We encourage students to be active learners who ask questions about the world around them and have the tools to find answers to these questions. We aim to equip students with 21st century skills through a curriculum focused on the explicit teaching of literacy and numeracy skills alongside real world learning units based on the Australian Curriculum, local priorities and student interests.

Our Farrer values of support, excellence, inclusion, innovation and sustainability are important in the development of responsible citizens.

We value and promote student voice through Student Parliament, circle time and individual goals set in writing and maths.  Parent and family partnerships are highly valued by our education team. We value parent input, feedback and involvement in learning, extracurricular and community events.

Farrer Primary School is a caring, happy school in which students are encouraged to be themselves and strive for continuous improvement.

If you are a Facebook user, we invite you to visit and 'like' our school's Facebook page. This is where we promote some of the great learning that takes place at our school and the connections we have with our community. Please go to

School Board 2022

The Board is responsible for overseeing the school's strategic direction. School boards must observe Directorate directions and ACT Government priorities and all legislative obligations. If you would like to contribute to the governance of the school this would be the perfect opportunity.

Nominations will open on Monday, 7 February 2022, for the following positions on the School Board.  Each term will be for a period of two years:

  • 1 P&C Association Member and 1 parent member

Note: With changes this year to the Education Amendment Act 2020, as a school without a P&C association, we need to first advertise for a local community member. If we get no nominations for a local community member, then we re-advertise the vacancy as a parent member.

Nomination forms will be available from the Front Office from Monday 7 February.
