School Profile

 

A warm and safe environment for all members of our learning community is what we strive to offer at Swan View Primary School. We put the pastoral care and mental and physical well-being of our students above all else. We believe that learning achievement comes more easily when our basic needs are met. 

Our staff work hard to be caring and nurturing as well as give students the opportunities to learn what the curriculum demands and life dictates. There is a balance of experience across the members of staff. Staff members are committed and diligent in their duties and provide enriched learning experiences for our 300 Kindergarten to Year 6 students.

We continue to be proud of the range of programs we manage to provide for our students. They have access to music, Italian, art, computer science, including Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), numeracy specialist, Cadets WA-River Rangers, physical education and health. We enjoy the chaplaincy program, Playgroup, instrumental music and three year old learning sessions. 

The school consists of 13 learning areas which includes an Early Childhood Centre. We are fortunate to enjoy separate curriculum delivery areas; library resource centre, music room, art room, computer laboratory, a designated mathematics room, science laboratory, a covered assembly area, activities room, dental therapy unit and a canteen.

Many parents are engaged in the teaching and learning process through their contributions by assisting in classrooms, the library, canteen and uniform shop. Our students participate in a breakfast program three days per week and have access to morning tea and lunch for those who need it. Our School Council and the P & C Association provides a platform for parent participation in the educative life of the school. 

We are all proud of our school and the commitment we have to developing students for 21st Century.
