Dudley Park Primary school was opened in 1976 and is set is amongst the Tuart trees in the heart of Mandurah. We are a Positive Behaviour School (PBS) and offer a broad curriculum for students from Kindergarten to Year 6. Our four Expectations for Success: SAFE, FRIENDLY, RESPECT & ACHIEVE have been developed in partnership with students and families and they guide all that we do at our school. We support the development of younger children in the community through the Dudley Park Child and Parent Centre. Students at Dudley Park Primary come from a variety of social and cultural backgrounds. We are extremely proud of the indigenous heritage of our community. Our community serves approximately 378 students, with 20% being Aboriginal, and an increasing enrolment of students whose first language is not English.
Our Vision: Success for everyone through a commitment to excellence and innovation in a safe and caring school community. All students and families have different needs and circumstances. We ensure that we cater for these individual needs to allow our community to grow together. We set the bar high and strive to achieve the very best academic, sporting and social outcomes. We embrace new ideas and are committed to doing things differently. This allows us to respond to the unique needs of our community. We understand the importance of positive relationships and partnerships in achieving the very best outcomes for everyone. We focus on the whole child to ensure we support physical, cultural, moral and intellectual development.
We embrace our motto 'Achieve Your Dreams' through a commitment to excellence and innovation in a safe and caring school community. Our School Board takes an active role in establishing and maintaining clear direction for the school and works alongside our Parents and Citizen Association, who raise valuable funds for extra school resources. We understand the importance of positive relationships and partnerships in achieving the very best outcomes for everyone.
The Western Australian Government has established 16 purpose-built Child and Parent Centres on selected public-school sites throughout the State and Dudley Park Primary School has been selected to host one of these centres. The school welcomes the opportunity of working closely with the Child and Parent Centre in supporting families and their children from our immediate community as well as through our nearby schools and their communities.
Our KindiLink program welcomes Aboriginal children from 0-3 years old and their families. The program strives to support their learning and development through 'play and learn' sessions based on the Abecedarian approach. KindiLink aims to support children's development and learning in the years before they start Kindergarten and to forge strong and supportive links between home and school. Parents and caregivers are supported to be actively involved in sessions to help inform their child's development and learning. KindiLink values and supports the learning that families provide at home.
We aim to provide a range of programs designed to increase student engagement, extend our students who are achieving above expected levels and support those students who require additional assistance. The specialist programs run at our school include STEM, Drama, Noongar Languages, Physical Education, Deadly Koolinga Chef Program, Drum Beat, Riding for the Disabled, Lexile Reading Program and Reading Intervention. We run programs out of our onsite Recreation Centre, focused on improving student attendance and engagement at school and is equipped with pool tables, air hockey, table tennis, basketball and fuse ball tables. Students also have access to dress ups, Lego and many other games. The commercial grade kitchen is utilised in a variety of learning programs. We have high expectations of success for every student, which is why we implement programs which cater to their specific needs.
We aim to establish and maintain links between staff, parents and members of the broader community and welcome you to visit our website or contact us directly to discover more about our school:
