Oberthur Primary School (5621)

School Overview

Oberthur Primary School, located in Bull Creek, caters for children from Kindergarten to Year 6.

Our school has an excellent reputation in the community and is a school of choice for families from many different backgrounds. This, along with our ideal size and location, contributes to the strong family feeling and atmosphere which is highly valued by both students and their families.

Your child will learn in a safe and enriching environment where they are inspired to achieve to the best of their ability. We take a team approach to teaching. Teachers, parents, students and the community work together for the benefit of every student.

At Oberthur Primary School, we develop the academic, cognitive and social skills of our students, helping them to become responsible members of both their school and their community.

Our students enjoy a full range of academic, social and cultural activities.

We focus strongly on academic success, especially numeracy, literacy and science with our students regularly achieving well in competitions. Students also have access to a range of programs including music, physical education and our Chinese (Mandarin) Immersion Program to foster creativity and development. We also focus on the environment with our Water-Wise and Waste-Wise programs.

We have a varied physical education program, with students competing in a variety of disciplines including football, netball, hockey, soccer, basketball, rugby tag, triathlon, as well as orienteering, edu-dance, gymnastics, swimming and athletics.

We have regular visits from Chinese students in our exchange program and our Year 5 and 6 students visit China on a study tour biennially.

We are proud of our virtues program. Key virtues such as respect, courtesy and self-discipline are discussed with students in class and are reinforced at assemblies and through student awards. We have a strong pastoral care program with a buddy system between students in senior and junior classes. A charitable and tolerant approach is evident in all our students.

In addition to our Kindergarten and Pre-primary areas we have a music room, well-resourced library and Chinese Centre and learning area, as well as areas for art, instrumental music and learning English as an additional language. Our students are also immersed in technologies - MacBooks, iPads and computers - from the moment they start school.

Our students wear their school uniform with pride. We are proud of our traditions, but we also have an eye on the future, making sure we are well-placed in the West Australian and global community.

We have an active school community with the P&C Association being heavily involved in fundraising and other school activities; our School Board meeting monthly to discuss the direction of the school; the School Building Fund being heavily involved in promoting community support of our building projects; and the Student Council meeting weekly to plan student activities.
