Nollamara Primary and Intensive English School

Our vision at Nollamara Primary and Intensive English School is to create a dynamic and safe learning community, inspired by cultural diversity, partnerships and educational innovation striving for academic and civic excellence for all our students.

Nollamara Primary School (or as we like to call it, Nollamara Primary and Intensive English School) is located approximately 7 kilometres north of the Perth Central Business District and is part of the North Metropolitan Education Region. The school was built in 1956 and was constructed using the old U configuration. Nollamara Primary School is a Level 4 school with a student enrolment of around 240 students and caters for children from Kindergarten to Year 6.

Nollamara has excellent facilities to cater for students educational, social and physical needs. The school has a new library which was completed in 2015. We also have a large oval for general play and sporting activities, as well as basketball courts and cricket nets. All classrooms are air-conditioned and we have a fully enclosed under cover area. Classroom IT is supported by interactive whiteboards in every classroom as well as an extensive wireless network to support notebook computers and iPad devices.

At Nollamara we recognise and value the cultural diversity of our students. Nollamara has an integrated Intensive English Program (which commenced in 2005) consisting of approximately 70 students. We cater for a variety of students who hold both permanent and temporary residency status. We have a large proportion of English as an Additional Language (EAL) students as well as around 12% indigenous student enrolment. Both the IEC and the main school are fully integrated and work in harmony.
