As an Independent Public School, Goollelal Primary School caters for students from Kindergarten to Year 6. Our school motto is, 'Sharing, Caring and Learning,' and this reinforces our belief in the importance of nurturing every child to fulfil their potential, socially, emotionally and academically.
Goollelal is situated 20 kilometres north of Perth in the suburb of Kingsley. Our school features a variety of dynamic play areas, including a 'loose parts' play area and a challenging fitness track. Our students also enjoy working in the chicken coop, vegetable patch and a variety of clubs during recess and lunchtime breaks. The school grounds are well maintained and feature established native trees and plants.
Our dedicated teachers and support staff are committed to providing a high quality learning program which encompasses all aspects of the Western Australian Curriculum. Our staff and children work together to create a positive school environment in which every child feels safe and is able to learn in a friendly and caring atmosphere. We offer a number of specialist subjects and have a strong STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) program.
The school's strategic focus for 2021 - 2024 is on student academic growth, particularly in the key areas of literacy and numeracy. This overarching goal is underpinned by three pillars: consistency of practice, a thriving school culture and staff and student wellbeing. We are fully committed to the implementation of evidence-based whole-school practices in literacy and numeracy and anticipate that our students will see the benefits of these in coming years.
Goollelal Primary is at the heart of a vibrant community. We work closely with the school community and value parents as partners in educating the children in our care. As an Independent Public School, the school operates under a School Board with parent, staff and community members. We also welcome parent involvement through our active P&C and through numerous school events throughout the year.
