Narrogin Primary School (5341)

School Overview



Narrogin Primary School has had a proud history of serving the Narrogin community for children from Kindergarten to Year 6. Our school motto, 'In the Pursuit of Excellence', reflects the belief that every child can be successful. We take a personal approach to prepare children to be life-long learners and active citizens in the wider community. We are here to ensure your child is supported to achieve their full potential.

Staff value cultural and linguistic diversity, difference and individuality, and use inclusive educational practices. Our staff provide quality education for all students, maximising learning opportunities and preparing each child for a successful life. Our teaching caters for the social, emotional, physical, academic, cultural and creative needs of individuals in a safe and supportive environment.

Wireless connectivity has facilitated greater use of technology in classrooms. The school is now well-equipped with a large bank of desk-top computers, interactive whiteboards in all classrooms, laptop computers and iPads.

We pride ourselves on creating interesting learning spaces for our students. Our unique cultural classroom, featuring a colourful mural, was designed and painted in conjunction with the Community Arts Network. Our science laboratory and multimedia studio lets students complete hands-on learning, further enriching their experience.

With the assistance of students, parents, community members and local businesses, a sensory garden, known as the 'Harmony Hangout', was designed and built. This is a very popular meeting space for students, staff and community members.

Additional facilities and programs include an off-site Kindergarten, on-site KindiLink, Noongar meeting room (Koorlanga Mia) and an on-site dental clinic. We also have a chaplain, school psychologists, school nurse and after school and vacation care available. As a community oriented school, our facilities are often used by clubs and families.

Our children are taught in a safe and supportive environment, with a strong focus on the behaviour expectations outlined in our Positive Behaviour Support program. Our five behaviour expectations: Safety, Tolerance, Academic Excellence, Respect and Responsibility, give rise to our mascot, 'STARRY', and we strive to demonstrate the 'STARR' behaviours. Our 'BeYou' program maintains and enhance the strong pastoral care and social and emotional support that is provided.

Students have the opportunity to take part in our specialist programs in languages, visual arts and physical education. Talented and gifted students are identified for inclusion in the Primary Extension and Challenge program (PEAC). Students with musical aptitude are able to access instrumental music, through our School of Instrumental Music program, and choir is offered as an option to interested students from Years 2 to 6.

Our School Board supports and contributes to the school's strategic direction. The school has an active Parents & Citizens Association, which contributes generously to the school's requests for support. Our business plan aims to optimise student achievement, teaching quality, leadership and relationships and partnerships.

The town of Narrogin is situated approximately 200 kilometres southeast of Perth. Student intake is drawn from the town of Narrogin and surrounding areas, including farming communities. Buildings vary in age and reflect the school's history. The school has a well-resourced library and purpose built music and art facilities. Older buildings include six linear style rooms that open onto a large veranda and fully carpeted assembly area, with a canteen. Two cluster style blocks feature three classrooms, linked to a common wet area.
