Welcome to Booragoon Primary School
Booragoon Primary School has many attributes that make it a unique, highly regarded West Australian Government School. Children here are happy, and they feel a deep connection to, and pride in their school. We have a number of families with a third generation member attending. Most noticeable in our school is the genuine care and mutual respect between staff and children.
Our school, which caters for Kindergarten to Year 6, is situated in the South Metropolitan suburb of Booragoon, a stone’s throw from Garden City Shopping Centre. The school was established in 1967 in a bush setting close to historical Wireless Hill Reserve. In 2017 we celebrated our 50th Anniversary, with numerous events and activities organised by our highly committed school staff, School Board and Parents and Citizens Association.
The buildings and grounds are well established and maintained, providing and excellent environment for both students and staff. We have four teaching blocks including an onsite Kindergarten, two purpose-built Pre-primary units and a senior teaching block. A multi-purpose building incorporates a Visual Arts room, a Science Lab, an instrumental music room and a fully automated library.
We have a focus on culture and the arts, with Specialist areas offered including Music, Visual Arts, Drama, LOTE and Science. Some sixty students learn a musical instrument through the (SIM) Schools Instrumental Music program and our String Ensemble and choir are outstanding.
Reflecting the fact that we have many high achieving students, our teaching and learning programs are designed to be innovative and challenging. Our 1:1 laptop program has now been in place for ten years and the school is a leader in technology based learning. We provide effective programs and support for the full range of learning abilities. Our teachers and Education Assistants are highly skilled practitioners, understanding and meeting the individual needs of each and every child in their care. Our goal is to provide our students with the skills and knowledge they’ll need to live and work successfully in the 21st Century.
Our community is extremely supportive of the school, evidenced by a strong, vibrant P&C and an effective School Board. We have a legion of ‘parent helpers’ who are happy to be called upon throughout the year to assist us with classroom activities, excursions, carnival days, fund raising events, and the Dads and Kids Camp Out.
