Beacon Primary School (5033)

School Overview

Beacon Primary School is a small, vibrant school located in the north-eastern Wheatbelt, catering for students from Kindergarten to Year 6. Our school has an experienced, enthusiastic and caring staff that are committed to providing the best learning opportunities for the children in our care in a safe and welcoming environment. Our multi-age classes offer a range of programs that enhance student learning, and allow all students to develop the necessary knowledge and skills to become confident, independent learners. Our staff strive to support the academic, social and emotional development of all students across the primary years to prepare our students to be able to make a positive contribution to society now, and in their future lives.

The school comprises two classes - Junior (Kindergarten to Year 2), and Senior (Year 3 to Year 6) - and serves the residents of the townsite and surrounding farms within the area.

As a small rural school we have strong relationships with schools within the region which benefits students by providing them with opportunities to regularly participate in educational, cultural, sporting and social events that allow them to form friendships with children from other schools. The Ninghan Cell, comprised of 6 local schools (Beacon, Bencubbin, Koorda, Nungarin and Trayning Primary Schools, and Mukinbudin District High School), hosts learning activities such as Cultural, Maths and STEM Challenge days; sports carnivals such as swimming, athletics and cross country; and a range of incursions to add to the learning program across our schools. We are also part of the wider Inland Lighthouse Network which supports the school through additional learning experiences (leadership, Science) and the professional development of our staff. To further enrich the curriculum, PEAC courses are available for select Year 5 and 6 students.

We have a rich history, where our school and the community work together to provide an education that meets the needs of individual students, and provides the foundation for each student's future education. Our students are our main priority and delivering an environment of High Performance and High Care is always at the forefront of what we do.

Our school plays an integral role in the Beacon community and parents and community members play an active and important part in ensuring students are provided with the best possible learning opportunities. Staff and parents work in partnership to ensure every child has a positive, happy and rewarding school experience.

The school is strongly supported by the School Council and an active Parents and Citizens Association. Our parent body is passionate about supporting our students and this is evident with the ongoing, dedicated support they provide in classrooms, at carnivals and in fundraising events.
