South Ballajura Primary School (5734)

School Overview

South Ballajura Primary School is located at the southern end of Ballajura and currently has 440 students from Kindergarten to Year 6. Our specialised team of early childhood teachers and education assistants provide younger students with an excellent introduction to education. The school has a strong focus on literacy and numeracy; and sets high expectations for all students.

Students come from diverse cultural backgrounds; with 41% of students having a language background other than English. Students are supported by a team of specialised teachers and education assistants.

Our positive and challenging learning and teaching programs ensure that all students develop the skills they need to be confident and independent learners; in a rapidly changing world. We have excellent specialist programs in Indonesian, Physical Education, Music and the Visual Arts. We have interactive whiteboards or plasma televisions in all classrooms.

South Ballajura is co-located with the South Ballajura Education Support Centre; this provides many opportunities for integration between classes and students. We have a strong ethos of caring and each child is welcomed as making a unique contribution to our school community.

We have a whole-campus focus of 'You Can Do It' and actively teach, practise and recognise the five keys to school success - Getting along, Organisation, Persistence, Resilience and Confidence. Positive behaviour is modelled and rewarded. There are consistent and clear consequences for students who breach our code of conduct.

2011 saw the opening of a new early childhood block and a new arts and teaching cluster block. This has directly enhanced the quality of the programs we are able to offer and deliver. Other facilities include a well resourced library and computer laboratory.

Our grounds are spacious and well-laid out. Kindergarten and Pre-primary students have designated and purpose-built play areas. There are junior and upper playgrounds; as well as a large oval, paved areas, basketball and tennis courts; and areas just to sit in the shade.

You are invited to visit our campus and see our great facilities and learn more about the programs we offer.
