Bakers Hill Primary School is a Level 4 school located in beautiful rural surroundings just off Great Eastern Highway, approximately 75 kms from Perth. The school grounds provide an attractive setting for the school, comprising of a pleasant mix of undulating land with natural bush and green lawns, native shrubs and shady trees with outdoor settings.
Prior to 1998 the school was housed in the original brick building which contained a small office area, a staffroom and two classrooms. In 1998 the original school building was converted into an Administration area and classroom which housed the library. At this time a new teaching area block was built with five classrooms and a wet area. A covered assembly area was built beside the original school building. Two more permanent buildings were added in 2010 under the Building the Education Revolution program. The new Library and an Art/Science & Music block have added considerable versatility to the school to run specialist programs. The school has converted the Pre-Primary / Kindergarten play area from a traditional playground to a nature play area. The steel play equipment has been replaced with a water course, bridge and grass and sand play spaces. These areas allow the students to use their imagination to create with the found objects that abound in this area. The library is used by the Bakers Hill Out of School Care program and Holiday Care program.
Students study Italian as a second language from Years 1 to 6. Science, Music and Physical Education are taught as specialist subjects in all primary classes. The Bakers Hill Primary School Choir won the primary school choir competition at the Northam Arts Festival in 2016, 2017 and 2018.
The school is well equipped with learning technologies. All teaching areas are fitted with a large touch screen monitor and dedicated computer to enhance student learning.
Over the years the staff has built a strong reputation for its competency, teamwork, cooperation and collaboration. Minimum staff changes have provided the school with stability and enabled the staff members to provide consistency, experience and enthusiasm along with a good understanding of their community. The School Volunteer Program provides mentor support for our students.
The school has earned an excellent reputation as a small, caring community that enjoys strong support from the P&C and School Council.
