East Kalgoorlie Primary School (5232)



School Overview



East Kalgoorlie Primary School is a family focused K-6 school located on the eastern fringe of the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder. Our students are from all over the city, 98% of whom are Aboriginal. We have a strong emphasis on the early years of schooling with services for every student and are uniquely placed to offer a highly supportive and nurturing environment.

Our intensive work in the early years is based around Early Years Plus, an innovative approach to learning for our diverse group of young learners. It looks outside the traditional boundaries of schooling and builds on the strengths every child brings to the first years of schooling. With a full time early years program running five days a week, including two Kindergarten classes for three and four-year-olds, we ensure every student has the opportunity to reach national early years benchmarks.

All of our students have access to school provided speech and occupational therapy if required, as well as a dedicated health and family support team on staff. Our full time music teacher runs a comprehensive program including a very successful choir and Drumbeat program that has proved extremely popular with students and parents alike. Our language and cultural program highlights our commitment to fostering Aboriginal culture in our school community. Our grounds feature a developing naturescape, sunny courtyard, and outdoor play and learning environments.

At East Kalgoorlie Primary School, our staff, resources and programs are all committed to developing strong, independent students ready to fulfil their dreams. If our students want to be butterflies, then we will make them wings. Our 'can do' philosophy ensures that no stone is left unturned to assist our students to achieve success.

STEM, robotics and coding lessons are a focus for the school. We are committed to using state of the art ICT solutions for engaging learning and remediation programs. All of our classrooms are fully air-conditioned with an interactive LCD touchscreen. We also have iPads, desktop and laptop computers in every classroom.

Our facilities include a fully stocked library, learning support and health services centre, and kitchen that provides healthy and nutritious breakfast and fruit every day. Our spacious undercover area, renovated reception area and community room provide ideal spaces for community events and family liaison.
