Balga Primary School, is an Independent Public School that prides itself on working closely with parents and the community to provide a high quality education for our children to prepare them for opportunities that lie ahead.
We believe in developing the whole child and helping children to identify their strengths and interests so that they can achieve their dreams. Our vision is to strive to create a safe and supportive learning environment where all members of the school community are welcomed, respected and valued and where students develop the necessary skills, knowledge and confidence to become successful citizens.
We are proud of the rich diversity of cultures represented in our school community and ensure that the learning needs of each child are catered for. Committed, experienced and supportive staff have a focus on child engagement, wellbeing and identifying and applying teaching strategies so all children can achieve their best.
We provide a strong foundation in literacy and numeracy, and staff work together to streamline children’s learning with carefully planned progressive learning programs. The use of computers and iPads in the classrooms gives children the advantage of being familiar with state of the art technology.
Specialist teachers in science, physical education and music provide children with educational experiences that develop their individual passions and talents in their areas of interest.
Through the whole school use of the Friendly Schools Plus program and our school-developed values program, we support students to develop excellent interpersonal and self-management skills which contribute to maintaining our safe, caring school environment.
Our long-standing partnership with the 12 Buckets mentoring program helps children discover their talents and develop to their potential.
As an Independent Public School, Balga Primary School values parent and community involvement and has an active Parents and Citizens Association and School Board.
