Principal's Message

Welcome to Westall Primary School, a school we can all be immensely proud of.

Since 1961 Westall Primary School has been educating a diverse range of children and the community continues to celebrate and embrace this diversity. The school seeks to maintain a respect for each other’s beliefs and different cultural backgrounds that really enlivens this community.

At Westall, we will continue to develop and enhance a school that:

  • Focuses on the development of the whole child
  • Strives for the highest academic standards
  • Reflects the values of its community
  • Has a personalised curriculum for each child
  • Develops true partnerships that value each child

The children work cooperatively and support each other in their learning and are encouraged to set goals and reflect upon their achievements.

There has been a sustained and clear focus on building a stimulating learning environment so that every child is engaged in high quality learning. There has been a clear focus on whole-school professional learning, coaching, and building the teaching teams to ensure consistency of teaching and learning practice across the school.

Despite the high percentage of students who start school with literacy and numeracy skills well below the state and regional benchmarks, student learning outcomes in literacy and numeracy are well above expected levels.

Please feel free to come and speak with myself or any of the staff regarding your child’s education.
