Established in 1963, East Narrogin Primary School is located in the progressive regional centre of Narrogin in the Wheatbelt region of Western Australia about 200km south-east of Perth. The school is located on the traditional lands of the Whadjuk Noongar people. The name Narrogin is derived from the Noongar word Gnarojin which means place of water. Our school provides primary education for Kindergarten to Year 6 students drawn from within the town and outlying areas. We provide a safe, inclusive learning environment with a focus on the wellbeing of each child. The Chaplain and the AIEO are an integral part of our school community, working to strengthen links between families, the local community and the school. In recent years our staff have been recognised through the WA Education Awards for the care and support shown to students. We provide specialist programs in Music, Visual Arts, Library, Indonesian and Physical Education to enhance our curriculum offerings. East Narrogin PS is well resourced with a large undercover area, art and craft room, computer laboratory and purpose built Early Childhood Centre catering to our Kindy and Pre-Primary students.
East Narrogin PS became an Independent Public School in 2013. The school enjoys the support of an active Parent and Citizens’ Association (P&C) and an effective School Board. The school recognises and values our positive working relationship with the wider school community. Our diverse student population represents families from across the globe, including South Africa, the Philippines, Netherlands and India. Our canteen is managed by the P&C, offering healthy lunches, whilst our pastoral care staff provide students with a nutritious start to the day through Breakfast Club each morning. Amity Health operates a community playgroup within the school grounds, supporting parents with the transition from home to school. Parenting workshops are also offered throughout the year from our Community Centre.
Our school is focused on ensuring all students, regardless of ability or style of learning, are provided with the opportunity to reach their full potential in a positive, supportive and engaging learning environment. We foster individual student interests, encourage active participation in the learning process, and provide opportunities for students to apply knowledge and skills to real life experiences and challenges. At East Narrogin PS we maintain high expectations of our staff and students, recognising that high quality teaching positively impacts student learning outcomes. We celebrate good behaviour, challenge students academically and provide opportunities for children to be leaders in their classroom, school and in the community.
East Narrogin Primary School welcomes the opportunity to share our school and our achievements with parents, carers and visitors to the school.
