Three Springs Primary School is 172 kms from the Mid West District Education Office in Geraldton and 320 kms north of Perth along the Midlands Road. Three Springs Primary School was established in 1908. The school buildings have changed since then and they now include three classrooms; two of which provide for open area teaching and assemblies, Art/Music room, a library which is fully automated, and Science/Technology lab. There is an Information and Communication Technology lab with a bank of computers as well as two computers in each classroom all being networked and have Internet facilities.

The school grounds feature a netball/basketball court, community cricket nets, shaded adventure playground, a newly established playground including a bike track which is called 'Tiggerland' and a reticulated grassed playing area. A Shade structure for play and assemblies has been erected by the P & C.

We have three classes operating to cater for our students from Kindy to Year 7. Our students either travel to school by school bus (2 bus runs), bike, walking or car. After Year 6 our students either go to Carnamah DHS (22 km away) or boarding schools. The school staff is made up with local people and staff who have chosen to work at Three Springs and have made the community part of their life.

The school has been recognised as being Asthma Friendly, Water Wise and Sun Smart and is now working towards becoming Wastewise. Our long term project which incorporates many outside agencies is our Community Garden Project situated on the corner of Carter and Maley Street. This project will see the children planting and maintaining vegetable garden, biodiversity area, worm farm and much more.
