North Perth Primary School (5372)

School Overview

North Perth Primary School is an inner-city public school, established in 1899 with a long and vibrant history. It's this connection with its past, along with the enthusiasm and energy of the current students, staff and parents that makes North Perth Primary School a dynamic school community. The original school motto Honour, Loyalty and Duty is today understood as our values of respect, trustworthiness and responsibility.

Many outstanding students have attended North Perth Primary School. Our honour boards record the names of two Rhodes Scholars, and many high profile members of the arts, legal and sporting communities. The school is regularly visited by former students who share their fond memories with the students and staff.

North Perth Primary School caters for children from Kindergarten to Year 7. The majority of our students live in North Perth, and a small section of West Perth, Leederville and Mount Lawley. The school continues to experience rapid growth due to extensive revitalisation and infill development occurring in North Perth requiring enrolments to be limited to the local-intake area.

The school grounds and facilities have improved enormously over recent years to include a covered assembly area with a canteen, library, performing and visual arts building, early childhood centres for Kindergarten and Pre-primary, and an upgraded administration area. A fitness track, adventure playgrounds, landscaped oval, raised garden beds, and colourful murals, sculptures and paths are also a feature of our school. The school community is working to increase student access to play equipment and nature-based play spaces.

There is a strong community spirit and the partnership between parents and staff has seen North Perth Primary School continue to go from strength to strength. Much continues to be achieved through the hard work of students, staff members, parents, former students and members of the wider community working together.
