Learning for Life

You need:

  • a strong early childhood education network
  • dedicated teachers and small class sizes at your children’s school
  • communities that support and are involved in education
  • a range of tertiary and vocational training opportunities

The Wimmera has high-quality education options for any stage of your or your family’s learning.

Our kindergarten and pre-schools are well-coordinated and are the central point for many neighbourhoods and young families.

Our primary and secondary schools are well-resourced many schools benefitting from new and modern facilities, including several that incorporate primary and secondary on the same campus, for a seamless transition and strong sense of belonging among students.

The Wimmera is the proud home to two major tertiary institutions – the University of Ballarat which offers higher education and vocational qualifications at its Horsham campus, and Longerenong College, which is Victoria’s fastest growing agricultural college.
