I am lucky to be the principal of this school. West Leederville Primary is a vibrant place of learning and social growth. Proudly inner-city, the school is just three kilometres from the Perth CBD, with a cosmopolitan community of students from many cultural and linguistic backgrounds. Established in 1898, our school has a rich history and traditions. Over the years the school has grown significantly, expanding to fill the site. While the original heritage building remains, additional, modern buildings house now help to house over 570 students. It is a beautiful site, wrapping around a large fig tree and featuring city glimpses from across the school.
Our students constantly display our school values of perseverance, kindness respect, excellence and courtesy. They have a growth mindset and demonstrate a creative and inquisitive outlook on life. Students are supported by dedicated and highly motivated staff, who embrace a child-centred philosophy and are committed to improving outcomes for all students.
The school is firmly embedded into the culture of the local community. It is a warm and embracing environment that ensures everyone is welcomed and encouraged to participate in the daily life of the school. We are grateful for this engagement and collaboration because we know, when everyone works together, great things happen.
