Mount Tarcoola Primary School (5608)



School Overview


Mount Tarcoola Primary School is located in a suburb about 5km from the central business district of Geraldton. Established in 1978, we cater for students living in the southern suburbs of Geraldton and the Greenough hinterland.

We are a warm, friendly, welcoming school where manners, behaviour and dress standards are regarded as important. Mount Tarcoola Primary School cater students from Kindergarten through to Year 6.

A major focus of the school has been incorporating Positive Behaviour Schools(PBS) skills, attitudes and values and is a recognised leader in this initiative. We achieve considerable success in a range of academic pursuits, most notably the statewide Numero Competition in mathematics, the Clem Burn Heritage Award and the Randolph Stow Young Writer's Award.

Our teaching staff are very experienced, with the large majority having taught for ten years or more. Teachers also regard the school as a highly desirable location.

The school actively promotes and encourages parent participation and involvement in the life of the School. The Parents and Citizens' Association provides outstanding support and has linked much of their recent work to supporting the school's PBS initiatives. The school also has a highly active Pre School Committee that works closely with the early childhood classes at the school. Many hundreds of parents and extended family members join the school on numerous occasions throughout the year. These include regular school assemblies, Open Day and the End of Year Assembly and Graduation evening.
