Ballajura Primary School is located in the north eastern suburbs of Perth. The school was opened in 1989 and currently caters for 760 students from Kindergarten to Year 6. Enrolments continue to increase due to the school’s reputation for quality education, a focus on explicit teaching practices and high academic expectations. The school prides itself on being culturally diverse.
The school is of modern design and has outstanding facilities, which provide a stimulating environment for students, staff and the community. All teaching areas are air-conditioned and have wireless internet access which are networked to our 500 plus ipads that are utilised by our students to enhance learning programs. All classes are equipped with interactive LED screens that enable seamless integration of technology in the classroom. The school boasts a refurbished administration building, staffroom, boardroom and meeting rooms.
Our Early Childhood Education Centre recently received a $4 million government funded rebuild, making our facilities second to none. This features four, brand new purpose built early childhood classrooms from kindergarten to pre-primary, with state-of-the-art facilities both inside and out. All playgrounds were re-designed, including a nature fort, climbing equipment and bike tracks complete with shade sails for protection. The school has recently constructed a $300 000 nature playground, which is in part thanks to the fundraising efforts of our wonderful Ballajura Primary School community.
Furthermore, the school has a custom built drama room, library, fully-equipped science room, undercover assembly area, separate uniform shop and canteen. The school is also fortunate enough to have a modern dental clinic located on the grounds.
Ballajura Primary school has a full size oval, basketball and netball courts for students to access during school hours and a community library and pool within easy walking distance. The school’s grounds combine lush gardens, lawns and modern play equipment which reflect the school’s charter of providing staff and student facilities of the highest calibre.
