East Beechboro Primary School (5626)

School Overview

East Beechboro is a highly respected Independent Public School in the City of Swan catering for the educational needs of approximately 437 students from Kindergarten to Year 6. Our student population is inclusive of many cultural backgrounds as well as students with special needs.

In a partnership of mutual respect and purpose, our staff and school community work with a shared vision to establish a learning environment that provides a well-balanced education that maximises the outcomes of all students emotionally, socially and academically. The basis of our school's beliefs is a commitment to the importance of quality relationships upon which a safe, happy and productive learning environment will continue to grow.

Teaching and learning is based on educational best practice, working with a clear vision of priorities and addressing the needs of all students. The dedicated and professional staff utilise the Australian Curriculum to provide comprehensive educational programs designed to produce well rounded individuals who possess strong social and personal skills alongside their academic strengths. The school has a strong focus on maintaining high standards in the delivery of the curricula and ensuring that there is continuity in all educational programs from Kindergarten to Year 6. The educational programs reflect the importance the school places on an effective early childhood education and the need for explicit teaching of essential literacy and numeracy skills across all year levels.

The school offers three specialist programs for Years 1-6 in Music, Languages Other Than English (Indonesian) and Physical Education. Our choir provides children from Year 3 to 6 with musical skill and opportunities for community/public performances. Students from Year 1 to 6 participate in a comprehensive Physical Education program which is complemented by an extensive array of resources. Students are encouraged to compete in school-based athletics, interschool athletics and sport carnivals. Our Indonesian program is offered in Years 3 to 6. Students learn conversational language conventions, grammar and gain a cultural perspective of Indonesia. In addition to our specialist programs, we also operate a before school Jump Jam program for Year 1 to 6 students providing additional opportunities for community/public performances.

We are committed to the values that we believe are essential in achieving the best possible outcomes for all students. At East Beechboro Primary we use the Virtues and Friendly Schools Plus programs to develop qualities that contribute to the growth of resilient students who are encouraged to actively demonstrate good citizenship and responsibility in their daily lives. These programs are ably supported by our school chaplain who provides pastoral care for students in addition to running the Friendship Club at lunchtimes. The students are taught to set high standards for themselves in all aspects of their development.

East Beechboro Primary has a strong sense of community and is proud to have the support of a dedicated and active P&C and School Board. Parents play a vital role in supporting the school in ensuring students are provided with the best educational experiences possible by assisting in the classroom, at school events and with fundraising activities.

The school is of an open design with four clusters of air conditioned classrooms all fitted with interactive technology. Additionally we have a computing laboratory, an administration block, a library resource centre, an early childhood five-room centre incorporating three Pre Primary rooms, two teaching areas and two Kindergartens.
The buildings are set on extensive grounds, are security fenced and adjoin Maguire Park. Other facilities include an enclosed assembly area, canteen, basketball/netball courts, adventure playgrounds and onsite before and after school care.
