Cervantes is a small coastal town situated approximately 190 km north of Joondalup along the Indian Ocean Road with the Nambung National Park and the famous Pinnacles on our doorstep. The main industry in Cervantes is Crayfishing with other residents involved in local businesses, mining or government departments. Cervantes is a popular holiday destination and the many visitors cause the town population of approximately 500 permanent residents to fluctuate.
Cervantes Primary school is a Level 3 school in the Midwest Education Region, with approximately 45 students currently enrolled. Our vision of 'The Pinnacle of Learning and Growing Together' reflects our unique environment and our mission to respect the individuality of each child and encourage them to succeed in a changing world. We are known for our collaborative approach between students, parents and staff to achieve each child's potential. In 2012 we became an Independent Public School and we work with Jurien Bay DHS and Leeman PS as the Turquoise Coastal Schools Alliance, to benefit our students.
Stable teaching and support staff has helped ensure the excellent quality of educational programs offered at Cervantes Primary. Multi age classrooms are kept to small sizes and supported with regular Education Assistant time. This ensures an individualised student approach.
Cervantes Primary offers many interesting learning programs utilising local and outside experts. Students from all year levels are involved in excursions and incursions and the senior class students attend a week camp every second year. Traditions at Cervantes Primary include a summer surf carnival, involvement in the community ANZAC service, Year 6 leadership development, Father's Day Breakfast, involvement in the community Art Exhibition, the Year 6 graduation celebrations and the end of year Beach Party.
Our sea murals painted by a past student, along with our well maintained school grounds and student friendly play areas help make our school an inviting environment. Staff continually promote and explicitly teach the school values of showing respect, being responsible and building relationships across the curriculum. We often receive feedback from visitors about our friendly and polite students.
