Calingiri Primary School (5080)

School Overview

Calingiri Primary School, located in the Wheatbelt, caters for children from Kindergarten to Year 6. Our students come from a variety of backgrounds, with many living on nearby farms.

Calingiri Primary School is a dynamic learning community where members work collaboratively to give every child the opportunity to realise their full potential and to become resilient, confident and respectful citizens. Our small student population of 31 students allows us to know each student as an individual. Staff and students work together to create a positive school environment in which every student feels safe and is able to learn in a friendly and caring atmosphere.

Classes are structured to ensure optimal outcomes for our students. We have two full time classes: one for Kindergarten to Year 2 and the other for Years 3 to 6. Students learn in a nurturing environment that focuses on fostering a passion for life-long learning. We provide students with many opportunities to participate in a variety of activities including incursions, excursions and clinics. Students in Years 5 and 6 also attend a biannual camp.

We offer a diverse range of subjects including robotics, visual arts and music. Other specialist areas include physical education, science and French. Technology is used extensively with students regularly using computers, iPads and robotics. We begin every week with a student assembly where exemplary behaviour, working towards goals and positive attitudes are discussed and rewarded.

Our school's learning and teaching culture of 'Excellence' and our strong sense of community drives our vision - to prepare students to be positive and flexible learners enabling each student to achieve to their maximum potential.

Our challenge is to further develop our students as successful, motivated learners. We are confident that this approach along with targeted learning can be achieved with the support of strong partnerships between the school and the school community. Together we are building the learning foundations and futures of our children.

Our school enjoys a strong community spirit with close, supportive relationships existing between students, staff, parents and the community. The Calingiri School Council works with the principal to set and monitor the key directions and continued development of our school. The council includes representatives from parents, staff, P&C Association and the community. The proactive P&C Association continues to support the school with numerous fundraising campaigns to assist in the provision of resources and equipment for the school.
