White Gum Valley Primary School (5469)

School Overview

White Gum Valley Primary School is a community of learners striving for excellence in an environment of care, support and cooperation. With our country look and family feel, our school is the ideal learning environment for your child.

Located close to Fremantle, we are an Independent Public School catering for children from Kindergarten to Year 6. Children in our school come from a wide range of backgrounds and nationalities, giving your child an amazing opportunity to learn about other cultures.

Our staff have extensive experience. Their caring and professional attitude will ensure your child is nurtured and supported to achieve their full potential. Our school community is very small, which allows our staff to get to know your child, their strengths and their passions. Our staff include a learning support coordinator, Aboriginal education worker, school psychologist and school chaplain.

Our focus is on developing your child's literacy and numeracy skills. Our expertise also allows us to offer a range of specialist programs including Italian, music, physical education and visual arts. Children at our school have the opportunity to participate in before school sporting programs as well as school sporting clinics and a range of school and interschool sporting carnivals.

There may also be an opportunity to participate in the Primary Extension and Academic Challenge Program (PEAC), the Instrumental School Music Program and a range of national mathematics, language and science competitions.

We have a strong pastoral care program that promotes positive behaviour management and emotional development using the Positive Behaviour in Schools Program. Onsite we also cater for several playgroups, and offer a before and after school care program.

We receive support from volunteer organisations including MANNA Inc, Food-Bank, Ed-Connect Volunteers in Schools Inc along with speech pathologists from local universities.

Our P&C Association is actively involved with the school and undertakes many community fundraising events, and runs the school canteen and uniform shop. They also provide advice and assistance with grounds projects. The School Board plays an important role in assisting to set strategic directions.
