West Leederville Primary School offers a range of Arts programs from the Western Australian Curriculum.

All K-6 students study classroom music. From year 4, there is an opportunity for students to audition for the school’s Super Choir, which performs at numerous community events as well as annually in the Massed Choir Festival. A number of selected Year 3 – 6 students, through the Instrumental Music School Services, learn to play the violin, viola and cello. The school ensemble competes annually in the ABODA Festival, where they perform at a very high standard.

West Leederville Primary School offers both Drama and Visual Arts on a semester basis.

Highlights of the school calendar include the biennial school production, Christmas concert, and amazing community events such as 2017’s ‘Sculptures under the Tree’.
