About Mirrabooka Primary School

Welcome to Mirrabooka Primary School

Mirrabooka Primary School has an inclusive ethos providing a quality education and equal opportunity for all students. The staff facilitate the intellectual, social and physical development of all students through the structured learning programs they deliver.

 

Our school's role is to prepare students for the challenges, responsibilities and experiences they will encounter in their future life. Mirrabooka Primary School staff pride themselves on actively motivating and engaging students in a safe and stimulating learning environment using the principles of teaching, learning and assessment. Literacy and numeracy are core areas of development that are targeted in every year level.

 

Our students come from diverse backgrounds which creates a culture rich environment that focuses on respect and acceptance. Valuing diversity is the foundation on which the many successful programs operating in the school are based. In Semester 2 2005, an Intensive English Centre commenced within the school and currently supports an enrolment of approximately 100 students.

 

A staff of experienced teachers and education assistants ensure that each student has access to a curriculum which caters for their individual educational needs. The staff are highly motivated, enthusiastic and work collaboratively to deliver curriculum and support school initiatives that are student focussed.

 

The attractive campus is shaded by mature trees, bounded by urban bushland and shared by the 300 students of the Primary School and the Intensive English Centre. We are situated in the suburb of Dianella, on the southern side of Mirrabooka Senior High School approximately 14kms from the Perth Central Business District. The school attracts students from the suburbs of Mirrabooka, Balga, Dianella, Morley, Nollamara, Yokine and Westminster.

 

There are positive and effective School Parents & Citizens and School Council committees which meet regularly to discuss and make decisions about school programs and priorities. The active Student Council is comprised of a Head Boy, Head Girl and Deputies who are elected by the school students for the whole year along with class representatives who are elected for the duration of each term. This process teaches the democratic electoral processes, group representation and the rights and responsibilities of positive leadership

 

Mirrabooka Primary School places a strong emphasis on the provision of a safe and secure environment for all students, and we are committed to ensuring all children enjoy coming to school.

 

Future Directions

Mirrabooka Primary will form part of a local network of schools within the North Metropolitan region and work collaboratively within this network . The school will also build upon the strong established connections with other local service providers and the schools within the Mirrabooka Education Precinct. Students attending Mirrabooka Primary may continue their secondary education at Mirrabooka Senior High School or Mirrabooka Senior High School Education Support Centre which are situated on the same site. Continuity of current programs within the school and a number of new Literacy and Numeracy initiatives will be priorities for the school.
