Westbourne Park Primary School

About Us

school logoWestbourne Park Primary School was established in 1914 and has a wonderful sense of both history and community.  This year we are celebrating our Centenary.

We currently have approximately 570 students and have a second ‘campus’ further south on Goodwood Road which houses our new gym and our Italian program for older students.

Our school is zoned and we have many enquiries around enrolment.  School tours operate throughout the year and interested families are encouraged to book into a tour by phoning 8271 7430.

In 2011 we received an International School of Excellence in Habits of Mind Award in recognition of our work in developing and embedding  Habits of Mind (HOM).  Since HOM have been introduced at WPPS, we have seen a marked improvement in student achievement.

Alongside this, our greatest success is in the development of the ‘whole child’.  Recognising that our students are individuals who have a variety of talents and skills.  We have a strong focus on our values which guide how we behave.  We are mindful in our learning, looking to give to others.

Our community is very supportive of the school and we have many opportunities for families to help.  At WPPS there is a high sense of both pride in the school and a sense of ‘belonging’.

We are excited to be on a new journey with Lee Crockett, international authority on what students need to be successful in the 21st century.  We are one of the handful of schools across the world that Lee is working closely with to develop our students’ capacity to learn and grow in a fast-changing world.
