School Overview

Wanneroo Primary School is an Independent Public School situated in the the North Metropolitan Education District. The school caters to 480 students from Kindergarten to Year 6 and has a long and positive history with its local surrounds, being established in 1899.

In 2005 the Wanneroo Primary and Wanneroo Junior Primary schools amalgamated and the current school was constructed. The new school building is set in secure and attractive grounds, with well-appointed facilities complete with air conditioned buildings.

At Wanneroo PS the leadership focus is on providing an environment where students are supported to achieve and successes are celebrated.

There is a focus on implementing whole school approaches based on research of best practice, including contemporary teaching, learning and assessment strategies that are relevant for the context of Wanneroo Primary.

A particular strength of the school is its professional staff, whose collaborative approach is recognised and valued by the community.

The agreed values of Respect, Integrity, Safety and Engagement (RISE) are embedded across the school community. We all strive to 'RISE for Excellence'.

To ensure a close and effective working relationship is developed between the school and home, the involvement of parents at Wanneroo PS is crucial. Parents are encouraged to be involved in the school in a range of ways including helping in classrooms to support the learning, or through membership on the School Board or on the P&C.

As an Independent Public School, Wanneroo Primary is well placed to continue to build on its proud heritage and tradition of 'Growing Together'.
