School Overview

Currambine Primary Schools motto of 'Together Towards Tomorrow' reflect our schools strong sense of community and our forward thinking approach meeting the needs of our students, parents and staff.

Our school is located in the suburb of Currambine, approximately twenty five kilometres north of Perth in the City of Joondalup. Currambine is an Aboriginal word meaning place of hard rock.

Currambine Primary School opened with some 300 students in 1997 and has grown to over 800 students. Over fifty per cent of the students who attend Currambine Primary School come from the surrounding suburbs drawn by our reputation as a quality education provider for children from Kindergarten to Year Six.

Currambine Primary School offers a broad and diverse curriculum to the students in our care. Specialist programs in Music, Visual Art, Physical Education and French are offered across the school. Selected students are offered the opportunity to study a musical instrument.

Currambine Primary School ensures all children develop the skills and attributes to be successful leaders. All students participate in the Leader in Me program and develop the habits of highly effective people. Our school offers a wide range of programs that support our student's social and emotional growth including Friendly Schools Plus, Aussie Optimism and Bounce Back. Our school also sponsors a World Vision Child and supports schools in Cambodia through the Angkor Project.

The Student Care and Support Policy encourages students to make positive choices. The policy is flexible to accommodate children with special behavioural and educational needs. Outstanding behaviour has been acknowledged consistently through such things Gold Class awards, merit awards and Assembly Stars. Councillors and School Ambassadors are groups where students are recognised for their leadership skills.

Currambine Primary is a community and we regularly gather to celebrate together. This includes many special events such as our ANZAC Service and Carols by Twilight.

The school has excellent facilities including four teaching blocks and a fully enclosed and carpeted undercover area. This makes assemblies and incursions comfortable, enjoyable and relaxing. Within the undercover area is a school canteen, which operates five days per week and is currently run by the P&C Association. There are separate buildings for administration, the library, music and technology and staffroom. Each teaching area has access to wireless digital technology and an eBoard.

The contributions and support of our parents is highly valued in our community. Each child's education is a collaboration between the school staff, the child and their parents. An active P&C Association contributes successfully to the resources our children enjoy as part of their schooling. Parents are also strongly represented through the School Board which guides the long term agenda for our school.

Currambine Primary School was granted Independent Public School status in 2011. All teachers are merit selected as are the principal and associate principals. The school enjoys a dedicated enthusiastic and innovative staff that is focussed and ensures each child enjoys a successful learning journey.

Our community sees Currambine Primary School as a caring and dynamic learning environment characterised by our welcoming atmosphere, a broad range of curriculum offerings and a commitment to moving 'Together Towards Tomorrow'.
