The history behind the name
Our school is named TULLIALLAN Primary School This name reflects the local historic and aesthetic significance to the City of Casey and to the students and families that live in the school’s local neighbourhood. Tulliallan is highly significant in history and in a regional context as it is associated with the settlement of the study area during the pastoral era of 1850s and 60s prior to the land being opened for selection. It illustrates the development of cattle runs within the south east part of the Settled District of Port Philip. It has associations with locally important individuals in history including members of the Rossiter family, Strettle family, James Gibb and Captain Mitchell. The heritage listed “Avenue of Elms” and “Shearers Cottage” is 400 metres from our school site.
I am looking forward to meeting you and sharing the development of the school as we establish our own traditions, history and reputation over the years as a wonderful school for our children and families.
