East Hamersley Primary School (5627)



School Overview



East Hamersley Primary School is an Independent Public School driven by a collaborative professional learning culture of high quality teaching and learning, collaboration and high expectations. Established in 1979, we provide a range of educational programs for students from Kindergarten to Year Six. We are an outstanding school committed to providing a safe and caring environment in which students can feel comfortable to learn and grow.

Our teachers are highly skilled, passionate and experienced across all learning areas. We are a high performing school known for outstanding achievement. A recent review said 'There is much to be learned from the exemplary practices at East Hamersley Primary School, which have contributed to sustained high levels of student achievement.' In 2013, we were a finalist for WA Primary School of the Year.

Your child can access specialist programs in Music, Art, Indonesian, and Physical and Health Education, as well as have the opportunity to participate in the school choir. Our classes are designed to support both SAER (Students at Educational Risk) and TAGS (Talented and Gifted Students). In Year 6 students have the opportunity to lead and manage their peers in various sporting and school activities, as well as mentor students through a peer skills program.

We believe that literacy skills are the foundation of school success, with partnerships such as with the local library, the State Library's Better Beginnings Program, Speech and Occupational Therapists and the Child Health Nurses. Our early years program is a combination of play based, intentional learning and explicit teaching. We also offer an Early Intervention program for those students experiencing difficulties in the early years.

We foster inclusive partnerships between our students, parents, staff and the community, with a very active School Board and Parents and Citizens' Association who meet twice each term. Our pre-Kindergarten program runs in partnership with the parent community and Playgroup WA to ensure our students have the best possible start to formal schooling.

Your child will enjoy our quality facilities to support their learning, include our library, music room and undercover assembly area. Our classrooms are spread across three blocks, as well as our Early Childhood block. Each classroom features an interactive whiteboard and access to computers to help make learning engaging and collaborative. We are also an accredited Water Wise, Waste Wise and Asthma Friendly School.

We welcome parents at all times, so get in contact with us to find out more:
