Secret Harbour Primary School (5761)

School Overview

The purpose of Secret Harbour Primary School is to develop the whole child by providing quality learning experiences in order that every student may become a positive contributing member to our society goals. Our school motto 'Leads the Way' has been embraced by the school community.

Secret Harbour is on the WA coast and is situated between the cities of Rockingham and Mandurah. Our open spaces, bush land, beaches, parks and lakes combined with a strong sense of community spirit make Secret Harbour an ideal place for families. We cater for students in Kindergarten to Year 6 and have students from many different countries and cultures. Students and staff are very welcoming and supportive of new families during transition. We have a Defence Force Transitional Aide to support Defence Force families in the school. The school includes a well-equipped library wide computer access arts and music facilities and a modern Early Childhood Centre. Families have the convenience of a school canteen and an on-site Dental Therapy Unit.

Working closely with our neighbouring schools as part of the recently formed Comet Bay Professional Learning Community (CBPLC). The CBPLC continuously seeks out and shares learning and then acts on that learning. The goal of the CBPLC is to enhance our effectiveness as professionals so that students from all our schools benefit.

We provide a caring environment where individuality is recognised and valued; students develop self discipline respect and concern for others; self esteem self reliance and responsibility are fostered; a sense of belonging and pride is engendered; and they develop an ability to work cooperatively with others whilst communicating in a sociably acceptable manner.

Our school provides a learning environment where students are committed to excellence; diversity is recognised and catered for; full potential is achieved; they are encouraged and assisted to accept responsibility for their own learning; they make a positive contribution to the school and wider community; they develop respect for the rights of others; and learning is seen as part of a life-long process.

We aim to establish and maintain links between staff parents and members of the broader community through the free flow of communication; a commitment to seek out and encourage those who can enrich the school programmes; and the provision of opportunities for involvement and initiative in shared decision making.
