At Warriapendi Primary School our vision 'Developing the Whole Child' captures our philosophy that academic achievement relies on a child having well developed social and emotional skills. We explicitly teach these skills alongside a varied and engaging curriculum so our students reach their full potential both socially and academically.
Located in the northern suburb of Balga, our school was established in 1970 and is set amongst beautiful gardens with newly refurbished playgrounds. It continues to grow as an outstanding Independent Public School with approximately 200 students from Kindergarten to Year 6 coming from diverse, cultural backgrounds.
We have an experienced, caring and innovative staff with specialist teachers in music, physical education, art, science and history and social sciences. A whole school approach to teaching english and mathematics in a direct way ensures that our students develop the skills required for lifelong learning. Students have access to the latest technology to develop their learning skills through engagement with digital technologies and science, technology and maths that is integrated throughout our learning programs. Students have an opportunity to learn Indonesian in Years 3 and 4.
Our school has a strong pastoral care program supported by our mentor program, school chaplain and school psychologist. The Magic Coat program provides a common language that is used throughout our school to recognise and manage emotions positively. The five CROWN values of confidence, respect, optimism, willingness and nobility are used by teachers to recognise positive behaviours both in the classroom and in the playground. The onsite Child and Parent Centre supports families with children aged 0-8 years offering parenting support, playgroups and an excellent transition to kindergarten program.
Parents are vital partners in the education of their child. We are proud to have the support of a dedicated and active P&C that work together to resource programs and projects. The school board acts as the governing body focused on improving student learning.
Warriapendi Primary School has made outstanding progress in NAPLAN results over the last three years and were nominated as finalist for Primary School of the Year in the 2018 WA Education Awards. We look forward to showing you around our amazing school.
