Como Primary School (5110)



School Overview



Como Primary School is an inner suburban school situated near the Swan River. We are an Independent Public School catering for children from Kindergarten to Year 6. Our motto, Only Our Best, is well reflected in all areas of school life and in everything that we do and applies equally to the academic, social, emotional and physical development of all our students. Our students are confident, articulate, self-motivated and have a positive attitude towards school. We provide them with the skills and confidence to be their best and achieve their potential. School student leadership is encouraged with prefects, school captains and other school student leaders performing important roles in the everyday life of the school.

Our staff consists of both beginning and experienced teachers who are working together to provide our students with the best possible education for the 21st century. Our support staff are very positive and fully supportive of our teachers as they plan, deliver and implement the Western Australian Curriculum.

Special programs include our perceptual motor program which develops the motor skills of our Pre-primary and Year 1 students, and the Primary Extension and Challenge Program (PEAC) for our Year 5 and 6 students. Other special programs include French, school virtues program, school buddy program, robotics program, the arts, music and physical education. Both our junior and senior choirs perform with distinction at various venues and our Year 5 and 6 students have the opportunity to learn clarinet or a brass instrument. We also have teachers skilled in running programs for students who are learning English as a second language.

Our technology is progressive with a bank of classroom computers and iPads available for use across the school. The upper school classrooms have adopted a bring your own device approach and iPads are used on a daily basis.

Our whole of school behaviour management policy ensures our students take responsibility for their own behaviour. This together with an active anti-bullying policy and strong virtues and values program makes our school a safe caring and positive place to learn.

Como Primary School's parents are very supportive of the school. The School Board and an active P&C Association undertake activities such as running the school canteen and providing support across the school. Local businesses and past students are also supportive of our school.

The school is a traditional brick and tile building and is fully air-conditioned. The grounds have been pleasantly landscaped, with grassed areas, gardens and shady trees. There are twelve classrooms plus an art room, a library, a purpose-built Kindergarten and Pre-Primary building, an undercover area (that houses the canteen), a uniform shop, and a multi-purpose room used to support those students learning English as an additional language. A hall sits on the eastern boundary of the school which is used for school assemblies, the music program and the community.
