Pingrup Primary School (5380)

School Overview

Pingrup Primary School's motto is 'Working Together - Reaching Higher'. We are a small rural school approximately 360km south-east of Perth where individual education, with caring and attentive one-to-one instruction, is highly valued by the Pingrup community.

All students from Kindergarten to Year 6 demonstrate cooperative learning skills and participate effectively in student focused integrated learning opportunities. The multi-aged classrooms are well catered for with a dynamic approach to planning. Peer tutoring is often evident and a very effective way for students to improve their understanding of concepts.

Our school may be small in size, but we offer facilities and programs found in bigger schools. Our point of difference is highlighted by our small class sizes that allow our dedicated and enthusiastic teaching staff to offer a differentiated curriculum thereby, continually catering for the individual needs and interests of your child.

All students are encouraged to reach their potential in all areas of the curriculum through individualised and innovative teaching, learning and assessment strategies. The school has recently implemented MiniLit and Heggerty to assist our students phonological and literacy skills along with Maths Mastery which focuses on basic skills in mathematics. The school delivers high quality programs following the content of the School Curriculum and Standards Authority WA.

Our school offers excellent opportunities to be involved in sporting, academic or leadership activities. Our students have a strong sense of self, with staff investing time and effort to ensure that students are well prepared for their future schooling and life beyond school.

Pingrup Primary School participates in many opportunities that allow our students to partner with students from nearby towns. Collaboratively the nearby schools, such as Nyabing Primary School, Ongerup Primary School, Borden Primary School and Newdegate Primary School, work together to share learning experiences involving visiting artists, sporting activities and carnivals.

Our Year 5 and 6 students participate in a camp with students from Nyabing and Kukerin Primary School every second year. We aim for our students to engage fully with their educational experiences to produce life-long interests in learning and become a valuable member of the wider community.

Pingrup Primary school is well equipped for 21st Century learning. All classrooms are air-conditioned and resourced with appropriate Information, Communication and Technology hardware. The staff and students regularly use interactive whiteboards, desk-top computers, laptops, iPads and printers. The latest addition is a BenQ Smart TV which is located in the library.

We have been gradually making improvements to our junior playground which now includes a bike path, outdoor climbing equipment and a mud kitchen in the sandpit. Older students have a wide variety of sporting equipment to choose from including all ball sports, bikes and a Sticky Wicket for cricket. Our outdoor playground areas, undercover areas, lunch shelter and gardens provide our students with not only good sporting areas, but also relaxing and shady areas important for sitting, talking and participating in imaginative play.

Our school receives strong support from the Parents and Citizens (P&C) Association. Our fantastic parents and community groups continually support us and form an important resource encouraging community pride and promoting experiences that are highly beneficial for our students' development. A strong sense of community gives our students real life experiences to be connected with one another and make a real difference to the world around them.

We are proud of our students and know that your child would love to be part of our educational family.
