Woodanilling Primary School (5481)

School Overview


Woodanilling is a dynamic, rural primary school located between Katanning and Wagin, in the Great Southern Wheatbelt region. Our students are motivated, our staff dedicated and our school nurturing.

At Woodanilling we aim to 'Prepare All Students for Success'(PASS).

The school caters for students from Kindergarten to Year 4. Students benefit from a multi-aged classroom that is well supported by committed and hard-working education assistants; and qualified, experienced teachers. The small class size allows for individualised programs, authentic relationships and continuity of learning. A feature of the school is the extensive curriculum resources available, which includes sport and play equipment, digital systems (robotics) and 1:1 student-device ratios. The school has a well-established specialist Language (Italian) program and an environmental program that includes being Water Wise. Staff and students are fuelled by innovation and collaboration.

The school is comprised of three main structures; an administration building, classroom and library, and all buildings are fitted with reverse-cycle air-conditioning. The spacious classroom has two sections; a formal learning environment with interactive whiteboard and a large, multi-purpose wet area with kitchen facilities. The classroom is tailored to support holistic development of the individual child. The library is well-resourced and offers flexible seating arrangements; a research/study area and is also fitted with an interactive whiteboard.

Outdoors, the school boasts an undercover area, basketball/netball court, grassed playing field, bicycle/scooter track and playground equipment suitable for all ages including a large sandpit, outdoor kitchen and cubby house. Sustainable school facilities include fruit and vegetable gardens, an Aboriginal bush tucker trail and rain water tanks. The neat and well-kept grounds are nestled in a beautiful setting of natural bushland and make the school inviting and peaceful.

Established in 1902, the school maintains a rich tradition with many of the children who attend being those of former students who now act as ambassadors for the school and wider community. Positive relationships combined with strong, school-community partnerships see high levels of community engagement with people giving their time to be involved in educational programs, sport and fundraising events, busy bees and the School Council. The Parents & Citizens (P&C) committee is active, committed and continues to contribute to the school, both financially and by way of volunteer work. The school also connects families to a variety of external organisations including child and health services, Playgroup WA and neighbouring schools within the Great Southern Schools Network (GSSN) all of whom share common goals in maximising learning and wellbeing for students.

Woodanilling Primary School is the heartbeat of our community, helping our students' flourish, our community stay connected and our future bright.
