Maida Vale Primary School is located approximately 20 kilometres from the Perth CBD in the foothills and offers a unique bush setting with nearby local reserve. The school was first opened on 12 February 1912 on a site some 1.5kms north west of the present day location. The building was a single weatherboard and iron classroom and the sixteen pupils were in the charge of the school's first teacher, Miss Ida Lee. This first bush land setting was rather secluded and was not even serviced by a road.
In 1925 the building was relocated to the present site and since that time, the school has maintained a steady growth, commensurate with the housing development in the area.
The present day facility still enjoys considerable bush environment together with well-developed wooded lawn areas and the immediate proximity of the Maida Vale Oval Reserve, allows the use of extensive sporting facilities
The current day buildings range in age from the late 1970's to our Bindi Bindi Covered Assembly Area that was completed in 2021.
The School became an Independent Public School in 2015 and the School caters for students from Kindergarten to Year 6.
The classrooms are well appointed with interactive whiteboards in each classroom and a shared banks of iPads and laptop computers for students to develop their ICT skills.
