Warnbro Primary School
Category:Education, Primary Schools
Warnbro Primary School is located close to the beach 7 km south of Rockingham. The school is close to rail and freeway links to Perth and Mandurah. The school opened in February 1973 and has operated on the same site since that time. The school having grown to a over 1000 students in the mid to late 1990s now has settled at around 500 students. The trend is for a slowly declining school enrolment as the population of the local community ages.
Many of the school staff have been at the school for over twenty years with well established relationships with parents and connection with community groups such as local sporting clubs. Others have recently graduated from university bringing new perspectives and fresh ideas to our school. The staff are committed to maintaining a safe, happy and engaging environment for all students and staff in which learning and innovation thrive.
There is a cluster of 2 Kindergarten classrooms and another of 3 pre-primary classrooms recently built through the Federal Government’s Building the Education Revolution (BER) program. Also built as part of the BER is a new Arts, Science, Technology and Extended Services Centre. The Extended Services include Student Services program, School Health services, Speech Pathology, 0-4 Years School Readiness Program, Before and After School Care and after-school activities.
There is a purpose built library, health food canteen that operates each day, covered assembly area, school oval with adjoining basketball/netball courts and cricket practice nets.
A feature of the school grounds is a remnant stand of tall Tuart Trees as well as extensive grass areas and several sets of shaded playground equipment to suit all age groups.
