Yuluma Primary School (5217)

School Overview

Yuluma Primary School is an Independent Public School and caters for 210 students from Kindergarten to Year 6. Our broad range of programs focus on literacy, numeracy, values, and interactive and digital technology. We have extensive sporting facilities and pride ourselves on individual personal health achievements. Running club is on every Friday morning before school.

Yuluma Primary School opened in 1997 after North Innaloo Primary School amalgamated with Birralee Primary School (which had previously closed). The school was renamed 'Yuluma' Primary School to reflect Aboriginal heritage in the area. Yuluma Primary School is situated in a park-like setting with many mature shade trees and grassed areas complemented by paved walkways and gardens.

The school has strong community involvement. The School Board membership includes the Principal and eight elected representatives - three from the school staff and five from the community. We have an active P&C Association supporting the school and its programs.

The school is well resourced. In the area of Information and Computer Technology (ICT) a local area network is available to both students and staff. New Air Mac computers, iPads and Interactive Whiteboards allow increased opportunities for student learning and teacher development. Internet access is available to all users.

Specialist support is provided through music, visual arts and a Japanese language program. Music has a strong focus and access to clarinet and guitar tuition is offered through the School of Instrumental Music.

Values are very important to our school community so we have a raft of programs and activities for students with an emphasis on virtues. Taking a whole-school approach, programs are integrated across the student leadership, peer support and behaviour management programs. These programs provide the baseline for the ethos and purpose of Yuluma Primary School.
