Year 1 students, with the help of Year 6s and volunteers, planted various species of West Australian flora at the school’s administration garden on Tuesday

The hour-long activity, organised by Edith Cowan University pre-service teacher Jasman Andersen, who is on assignment at the school this term, coincided with World Environment Day on Monday

“The planting links to World Environment Day and reflects the school’s approach to sustainability.

“It gives the kids a chance to get involved with nature and have some fun.” Mrs Andersen said.

Parkfield Primary School

A high quality education for every child; whatever their ability, wherever they live, whatever their background.

Independent Public School

Parkfield Primary School is an Independent Public School which has been proudly educating young children for 25 years and has gained a strong reputation and culture as a leading primary public educational institution.

Beyond the academic excellence which Parkfield pursues, it proudly offers all its students a safe, inspiring and creative learning environment which provides unique opportunities for academic enrichment and extension.  Each and every child is encouraged to realise their full potential as we aspire to develop engaged, creative, independent, lifelong learners who will be active and responsible members of the school community. 

We consider our experienced teaching staff to be one of the strongest in the South West delivering engaging and innovative learning programs so that every child feels happy, challenged and valued.  Our strong and effective student services program encourages and supports student leadership, positive student behaviour and is supported by our pastoral care program.

Specialist teachers

Our specialist teachers are well respected, experienced and passionate in their chosen field and this is evident by their history of success.

Our active school community consists of our Parents and Citizens Association and School Board which is made up of parents, staff, industry and university representatives who are our partners in forging the school ethos and direction.

Our school buildings are of contemporary design with learning areas supporting three to four classrooms each with their own designated Information Technology area.  Specialist facilities are provided for the extensive Physical Education, Music, Dance, Japanese and Visual Arts programs.

Parkfield Primary School is situated in a vibrant, modern community which enjoys a wonderful, relaxed lifestyle. It is surrounded by water with the Brunswick and Collie Rivers to the east and south and the Leschenault Estuary to the west.  The proximity to the estuary, rivers and beaches enables staff and students to utilise these waterways for field excursions which supports our commitment to our Parkfield Learning and Understanding Sustainability (PLUS) whole school program.
