Welcome to the Wanniassa School Website

Wanniassa School has built a reputation for having a diverse, vibrant, energetic community by encouraging families as partners in learning.

We are proud to recommend our school as a place where all students are able to learn and play within a happy, safe and caring environment, from Preschool to Year 10. The individual care and attention that we give our students in the vital formative years is the key to the growing success of our school.

The campuses are separated by a short walk through a beautiful stand of gum trees and cross campus learning opportunities are proactively explored.
