Burrendah Primary School (5591)



School Overview



Burrendah Primary School, in Willetton, caters for students from Kindergarten to Year 6. Our school motto, 'Encourage, Endeavour, Excel' reflects our supportive learning environment, our work ethic and desire to see our students achieve to the best of their ability.

We provide a broad and balanced curriculum for our students, with system testing results being consistently high. Students access well regarded specialist programs in our purpose-built science laboratory/music specialist rooms, as well as health and physical education and visual arts. Students in Years 3 to 6 also have the opportunity to study Italian.

ICT is embedded with student access to iPads and a Windows based computer lab. A range of interschool sporting events, arts competitions and other events provide additional self-development opportunities for students.

Programs are in place to support students at educational risk, as well as our gifted students with a preference for early intervention to ensure our students have a firm foundation on which to base future learning.

We celebrate cultural diversity, providing a comprehensive support program for students who are learning standard Australian English as over half of our student population speak English as a second language.

We are also implementing a Positive Behaviour Support program to support students in 'Growing the Burrendah Way' with our Behaviour Expectations; Respect, Responsibility, Resiliency and Reach.

Our school is well respected within the local community. We share a close working relationship with Willetton Senior High School and Castlereagh School, with the three schools being within one precinct area.
