principal's welcome

We are located four hundred and fifty kilometres east of Melbourne, in the forests of East Gippsland.

Welcome, to Cann River P-12 College. We are located four hundred and fifty kilometres east of Melbourne, in the forests of East Gippsland, Cann River is a bustling Café Town on the Princess Highway. Cann River the gateway to Point Hicks, where Captain Cook first sighted mainland Australia.

Our schools deliver a highly focused curriculum from P-12. We are able to deliver a wide range of VCE subjects due to our flexible approach in planning for each group of students.  Our aim is to develop productive citizens with positive pathways to the world of work and society and this we do more effectively each year.  For most students this will mean transition to life beyond the local area.

Visitors note the sunny welcoming nature of the school.  The school has very high staff morale and support from the community: in 2017 a Priority Review found we were substantially achieved most of a goals with the reviewer describing the school in his presentations as ‘fantastic school’.

 This is in part because we are aware of the challenges for rural and remote students and we see our role is essential in the lives of young people.  We have a very strong professional learning culture and we do this by targeting our needs, and working consistently towards them.  We have a whole-school approach to the social and academic learning of each student – with every teacher knowing every student and progress carefully supported.  We are highly responsive to different needs, abilities and interests of individual students.

We acknowledge the Monaro people as the traditional owners of the land.
