School Overview

Wandering Primary School, located approximately 130km south-east of Perth, is a small Level 3 Western Australian Government School offering high quality individualised and inclusive education from Kindergarten through to Year 6. The school provides rich learning experiences for children in the town and outlying rural areas. A bus service is available to transport students to and from school. Wandering Primary School offers excellent teaching and quality learning, good values and a strong pastoral care program.

The school is currently operating two classes, a junior class (Kindergarten to Year 2) and a senior class (Years 3 to 6)with two experienced full time teachers, a principal, registrar and various quality school support staff. Our positive, challenging and differentiated educational program allows children to develop the necessary knowledge and skills to become confident, independent learners. Our priority is 'no child left behind'.

The first school was built in 1869, relocating to its present location in 1924. The school buildings constitute the original two classrooms, an administration block, early childhood centre, large undercover area and a well resourced library. One of the original rooms has been refurbished as a STEM room and boasts a diverse and generous range of IT equipment and infrastructure. The school is set in very attractive and spacious grounds. Students are involved in sustainable vegetable gardening and are assisting with the development of a cultural area where open classrooms will be conducted.

The learning program is well established and whole school plans, processes and data is reviewed regularly to ensure a quality educational program for all students. Teachers undergo regular performance reviews and participate in professional learning and networking wiht staff from within the Narrogin Schools Network.

At Wandering Primary School, we are concerned with children's physical, intellectual, emotional, social, aesthetic and creative growth and the ability to apply this to day to day living. We regard all children in our care as individuals, encouraging them to develop to the fullest extent possible. We pride ourselves on the warmth and friendliness of our students and staff and the strong family feel that exists within the school. Wandering Primary School works in close partnership with the school council, the parent and citizen's association and the shire and community of Wandering.
