Frankland River Primary School is an Independent Public School catering for students from Kindergarten to Year 6.
At Frankland River Primary School, we seek to provide a holistic education that ensures relevant and meaningful learning opportunities for all our students. We are a small school with approximately 55 enrolments. This allows our teachers and support staff to build a strong rapport with our students, and for students from different year levels to build close relationships with each other. Our multi-age classes, embraced by the school and community, provide many valuable social and academic opportunities for our students, where they are constantly challenged and encouraged to become confident, independent learners and critical thinkers.
We have a diverse staff of 15 bringing a breadth and depth of expertise to our school. Our strong culture of collaboration allows staff to embrace opportunities and work together to implement initiatives and continually improve processes in the school. Our staff also includes Italian, Class Music and Physical Education specialists to further complement our learning programs. We also have access to a speech pathologist, who provides early intervention and assistance for our students if needed.
Our school has a strong bond with the community. Our School Board works with staff to help set the strategic direction of the school and promote the school in the community. Our P&C Association works tirelessly to support the school through a range of fundraising ventures and many parents are actively involved in this group.
We have excellent facilities including a purpose built art and science room and a new library. Our school has interactive whiteboards in all of our classrooms and in the library. We also have a set of iPads which are used in conjunction with the computers available in the computer lab.
We are constantly working to strengthen our links within the Frankland River and wider community. Our aim is to make decisions at a local level that better meet the needs of our school, its students and staff.
The town of Frankland River is a small community located approximately 350km south of Perth. We embrace our rural location with the town being located about 65km from Kojonup and Mt Barker and 115km north west of Albany. The school is a catchment for families from Rocky Gully, Bokerup, Gordon River and Kybellup.
