Welcome to Warriapendi Primary School


Warriapendi Primary School is a co-educational Independent Public School (2010), first opened in 1970. We are located in the northern suburb of Balga, thirteen kilometres north of Perth City. The school has an enrolment of approximately 200 students drawn from a diversity of backgrounds. The school currently has six class groups plus full-time Pre-primary and two part time Kindergarten programs.

The school has a full range of facilities including three teaching clusters, Music Room, Library, Covered Assembly Area, Dental Therapy Clinic, Pre-Primary (part of cluster) and on-site Kindergarten. The school's computer network includes computers and interactive boards in all classrooms, the library and the administration building.
At Warriapendi Primary School our vision "Developing the Whole Child" captures our philosophy that academic achievement relies on a child having well developed social and emotional skills. We explicitly teach these skills alongside a varied and engaging curriculum so that our students reach their full potential both socially and academically.

We have an experienced, caring and innovative staff with specialist teachers in Music, Physical Education, Art and Science. A whole school approach to teaching English and Mathematics in a direct way ensures that our students develop the skills required for lifelong learning. Students have access to the latest technology to develop their learning skills through engagement with digital technologies and science/maths that is integrated through learning programs. Students have the opportunity to learn Indonesian in Years 3, 4 and 5.

Our school has a strong pastoral care program supported by our mentor program, school chaplain and school psychologist. The Magic Coat program provides a common language that is used throughout our school to recognise and manage emotions positively. The five CROWN values of Confidence, Respect, Optimism, Willingness and Nobility are used by teachers to recognise positive behaviours both in the classroom and in the playground. The onsite Child and Parent Centre supports families with children aged 0-8 years offering parenting support, playgroups and an excellent transition to kindergarten program. More detailed information about the Child and Parent Centre Warriapendi CPC can be accessed through the Department of Education website at www.education.wa.edu.au

Parents are vital partners in the education of their child. We are proud to have the support of a dedicated and active P&C that work together to resource programs and projects. The school board acts as the governing body focusing on improving student learning.

Warriapendi Primary School has made outstanding progress in NAPLAN results over the last three years and were nominated as finalist for Primary School of the Year in the 2018 WA Education Awards. We look forward to showing you around our amazing school and sharing our newly released Business Plan 2019-2021.
