About Our School

Yokine Primary School was founded in 1959.  Today, as a vibrant and proactive school, we are proud and excited to be charged with the responsibility of building upon the excellent education reputation that has been established over many years.  In 2011, Yokine Primary School achieved Independent Public School status, creating positive momentum for change and new opportunities across the school.  There is a strong sense of community and tradition, focusing on supporting students' needs academically, socially and emotionally.

Our school is inclusive and embraces its rich multicultural identity.  With over 40 different cultural backgrounds and almost 50% of students with language backgrounds other than English, Yokine Primary celebrates and benefits from this significant diversity.  Children's individual differences are provided for through an inclusive and personalised approach to education, and a commitment to engage with families and the wider community. 

We recognise that parents teach, guide and motivate their children through their learning journey, and contribute significantly to their overall educational success.  Our School Board and Parents & Citizens' Association play important roles and are proactive across our school.  Together we nurture and support students to participate, be considerate, and value the pursuit of knowledge. 

Our school is committed to achieveing excellence through innovative teaching and learning, and an agreed expectation that all staff will collaborate and engage with colleagues as part of a professional learning community.  Staff members are committed to furthering their own professional learning and are supported in pursuing career aspirations.  We work as a team to deliver a curriculum that fosters independent learning and promotes critical and creative thinking.

The school's direction is clearly articulated to achieve a professional learning community where students are successful, teachers are highly effective and parents are partners in their children's education.
