Watheroo Primary School (5458)

School Overview

Established in 1914, our school is the focal point of the Watheroo township which is located 38km north of Moora on the Midlands Road. Watheroo Primary School is a friendly, community minded school with students at the heart of all our decision making. We are proud to offer local families quality education within a caring, engaging and stimulating environment where all students receive individual attention and guidance.

At Watheroo Primary School, we have established effective learning spaces that are inviting, friendly and safe. Our staff are experienced, well qualified, active community members who deliver a range of unique learning opportunities and work in collaboration to build the capacity of each individual child. Improving the literacy and numeracy of every student is at the forefront of all our planning, and staff work hard to adjust their programs to meet the targeted need of students.

We set high expectations for our staff and students in respect to behaviour, teaching and learning, and these values underpin the approach we take to build a positive school culture.

Our neighbouring native bushland extends our school environment and encourages the active pursuit of environmental goals, outdoor learning and consideration of natural resources, flora and fauna.

In recent years, the student population has declined with larger cohorts of students moving onto secondary school and smaller cohorts entering Kindergarten. Our enthusiasm and spirit however, continues to soar. We consider our small numbers to be a tremendous advantage. Multi-age classrooms provide our students with the opportunity to learn alongside others from different year groups, allowing younger students to aspire, and older students to nurture and become role models.

The school embraces new families eagerly with old fashioned country friendliness and hospitality, which is mirrored by the close-knit local community.
