Yalgoo Primary School (5488)

School Overview

Yalgoo Primary School, which was established in 1897, is one of eight schools in the Murchison cluster of the Mid West Education District. It is approximately 220 kilometres from Geraldton. The closest schools are Mullewa District High School, Morawa Agricultural School and Mt Magnet District High School.

The students are catered for in two multi age groups (MAGS) classrooms. Staff use a collaborative approach to curriculum delivery and this, with the Aboriginal Literacy Strategy (ALS), is ensuring student's needs are met.

The grounds are attractive and the basketball court, covered area, playground and school oval are well used throughout the year. The new play areas of thermoplastic designs with letters and numbers are on the verandah outside Room 2, the Library and Room 4 teaching areas. The Undercover area has a snakes and ladder game together with hopscotch.

The school is supported by a small but dedicated group of parents who participate in the School Council. Community spirit is strong and this is reflected in the local presence at school functions. The school works collaboratively with the Shire of Yalgoo and Mullewa Employment Economic Development Aboriginal Corporation.
