Dear Parents, Students and Friends,
At Overport Primary School our highest priority is your children! At Overport Primary our professional staff delivers engaging and inspiring curriculum programs to enrich each child’s education. They not only rejoice at the students’ achievements, but encourage and support their efforts. They have a genuine affection for the children in their care and develop positive relationships that promote connectedness to school. Our curriculum programs are supported by a broad range of specialist areas: Visual Arts, Performing Arts, Japanese, Health and Physical Education and Library. We have a fantastic community spirit where parents and teachers work together in our family centred environment.
We realise that choosing the right school for your child is extremely important. So don’t hesitate to contact the school to make an appointment for a tour. Please see the transition dates and information for preps at this link. Overport Primary School has an outstanding reputation within our community and offers many engaging learning opportunities for your child’s development. Come and see for yourself what we have to offer – give your child the best start!
Overport’s building design is unique. It has a semi-open plan style environment that offers opportunities for students to develop independence, make connections with a broad range of other students and staff as well as working in a calm, air-conditioned, attractive setting. Our senior students are housed in the “Towerhill Learning Centre” which comprises six learning spaces and two large meeting areas. This environment supports explicit teaching as well as many opportunities for our students to set personal learning goals with their teachers, therefore, having ownership of their own learning. Our preps are housed in a flexible learning centre in the “Summit Learning Centre”, where they have access to all their teachers. The “Summit Learning Centre” and the “Bayview Learning Centre” offer open yet flexible spaces for a range of teaching to suit all students’ needs. Our middle school is housed in the “Hakea Learning Centre”. The learning spaces are complimented by an extremely large well-equipped library, a visual arts centre and a performing arts centre. The students have access to a large range of multimedia equipment including iPads, netbooks, notebooks, desk top computers and a lab. All classes have interactive whiteboards. Our Year five and six students are invited to be part of the optional “bring their own device” program and can bring their own iPads to support their learning. We invite you to come for a tour when the children are working to see the school in operation.
Our School Council is currently working with the Building and Grounds committee and has developed a whole school grounds master plan. This plan will further beautify the school, embrace environmental awareness, offer student and school community ownership, as well as support sustainability within the local area. Please feel free to see our Grounds Master Plan.
