Welcome to Westbourne Park Primary School.
Westbourne Park was established in 1914 and has a wonderful sense of both history and community. The school has a combination of historic and modern learning facilities which provide an aesthetically attractive and flexible environment for teaching and learning in a contemporary world. The students are friendly, highly motivated and engaged; and are immersed in many learning opportunities. Westbourne Park Primary School is a high performing site that caters for differentiation and personal growth beyond simply acquiring knowledge.
Our community is very supportive of the school and we have many opportunities for families to be involved. At Westbourne Park Primary School there is a high sense of both pride in the school and a sense of belonging.
There is a strong focus on our ARROW (Accountability, Respect, Resilience, Opportunity, Wellbeing) values and a whole school commitment to learning using the learner attributes that are based on the 21st century skills of critical and creative thinking, communication and collaboration. The ARROW values and CCC were developed and adopted by the student leaders, staff and community through a high consultative process in 2021.
Our school is zoned and we have many enquiries for out of zone enrolment which we will consider based on our capacity. School tours operate throughout the year and interested families are encouraged to book into a tour by completing the tour booking online form.

Westbourne Park Primary School is currently undergoing a major redevelopment due for completion mid 2023. This includes the establishment of a new nature play area (completed), redevelopment of a modern and functioning administration area to include student services, and a new community hub resource centre with outdoor learning spaces. The old Marlborough building is being renovated with collaborative classroom spaces (completed) and modern shared facilities.
I have had the privilege of being the principal of Westbourne Park Primary School since January 2020. I have a strong philosophy that students are our why and not only consider them but involve them in the decisions we make and the directions we take. I highly value teamwork and believe in a balance of explicit and inquiry learning with a focus on learner agency to promote development of the whole self. I believe that every teacher, support worker and leader will influence the lives of students in some way, and as principal I believe my role is to provide the opportunities, leadership, and support for people to authentically engage in ways that provide improvement, connectedness, positivity and growth.
Please look through our website and book a tour to get a sense of our wonderful school.
