School Overview

East Wanneroo Primary School is an Independent Public School catering for approximately 400 students from Kindergarten to Year 6.
Our school is noted for its strong collaborative literacy and numeracy programs with each student's learning needs tailored to their level of development. Our expert teachers provide learning programs that support our school's vision of 'working together to provide an inclusive, caring and happy learning environment where children feel safe and are encouraged to achieve their personal best'.
Our teachers are extremely talented and are experts in helping your child achieve their full potential. We encourage staff collaboration through year-based work teams where teachers get to plan, evaluate and report on student progress. Our teachers also ensure parents have regular class and student feedback through our Seesaw app.
Our school has had a 'good standing' expectation as part of our very strong behaviour management policy for many years which has produced a very stable environment for students, adding to their health and wellbeing. We have many positive incentive schemes that have helped develop a team spirit in our school with includes individual and class awards/rewards for students.
We have specialist programs in science, physical education, music and Japanese, all taught by our specialist teachers. We have a strong emphasis on music with students in Year 5 and 6 having the opportunity to study an instrument including flute, clarinet, trumpet and guitar through the Instrumental Music School Services. In-class recorder lessons are provided for students in Years 4 and 5 and ukulele lessons are taken with our Year 6 students. Our school choir (for Years 4 to 6) is featured at various school and community events. Our Japanese lessons are provided to all students from Years 3 to Year 6 and we have a Taiko Japanese Drumming Group for our senior students.
