School Information

Our school’s motto of “friendship” underpins an ethos of providing a positive, co-operative, safe and caring learning environment. We welcome your partnership, support and encouragement in all our endeavours.

As stated in our vision, at Alinjarra Primary School we work together with our school community to equip our students to strive for excellence in all that they do. We encourage them to be active lifelong learners with a passion for knowledge. Above all we want our students to achieve their potential and become responsible, civic minded members of the world community.

Our teachers at Alinjarra are dedicated to providing high quality educational opportunities through effective programmes, appropriate responsive strategies, expectations of excellence and challenge, and nurturing in children a sense of achievement in giving their best.

At times we will try new programmes, trial new approaches and consolidate the use of proven learning techniques. We have high expectations of behaviour and self-discipline from our students and will encourage an attitude of “caring for others”.

We welcome your family to our school community. Through open, honest communication we can work together to ensure a positive learning journey for your child. Our staff strive to ensure that our students leave us with the skills, knowledge and attitudes to achieve their individual potential.
