Coolbinia Primary School (5116)

School Overview

Coolbinia Primary School is an Independent Public Primary School, catering for students from Kindergarten to Year 6. We are set amongst native bushland and open spaces of Coolbinia. Enriched by a strong community featuring a friendly, caring atmosphere, the school has developed close, productive partnerships with a range of organisations.

Our experienced educators work alongside our parents and community, to guide students to be the best version of themselves. Our students are our greatest resource and they are supported in developing the attributes required to become leaders and instilling in them a love of learning.

Coolbinia Primary School provides whole school and classroom programs that engage students in the process of learning to stimulate their desire to learn. This is achieved through the provision of contemporary, high quality teaching and learning programs that build upon student's existing knowledge and provide structures that best support learning.

Our dedicated staff understand that children need to learn in an environment that supports positive mental health. This is achieved through a comprehensive whole school approach to student wellbeing and the development of the social, emotional, psychological and physical needs of every child.

While academic development is a key consideration, we also provide for students to develop skills and abilities in areas such as Technologies, Italian, Music and Physical Education. Opportunities exist for students to learn a string instrument, be a part of the choir or string ensemble.

We have a proud record of success in interschool sport including swimming, cross country and athletics. Coolbinia is acknowledged as a leader in the area of cross curriculum. This has been a priority for over a decade and has been acknowledged by the government and many local and global organisations. This has led to a strong connection to our local environment and sustainable practices developing students with a community conscious view.

Coolbinia PS is committed to continual improvement in digital technologies and STEM learning. In doing so we support our students in developing the skills, knowledge and understandings required to access 21st Century learning tools and the opportunities to use them in finding solutions to authentic, real world problems.

Coolbinia Primary School values and promotes collaboration and is part of the Mount Lawley Hub, which also includes Mount Lawley Primary School, Inglewood Primary School, Sutherland Dianella Primary School, North Perth Primary School, Kyilla Primary School, Yokine Primary School, Highgate Primary School and Mount Lawley Senior High School.
