About Us - Principal's Welcome

Welcome to the Karratha Primary School website. This website provides an opportunity to strengthen the link between our school and our community by showcasing our learning programmes and the successes of our students, and sharing information about policies and procedures within the school. Our website is also a great way to share our school with the wider community of family and friends.

Our Vision: At Karratha Primary School we value diversity and academic excellence. We are positive and inclusive. We embrace the values of care, personal best, responsibility and respect to nurture independent lifelong learners and active citizens.
Our motto is ‘Courtesy’, which refers to being polite and using manners. Courtesy is also showing excellence in the way we treat others and ourselves.
In 2020, our priorities are Academic Excellence, Belonging and Lifelong Learning. We will continue refining our teaching and learning practices, and focus on developing STEM. Our Positive Behviour Support approach, Be You framework and Friday Clubs support every child and family to feel a sense of belonging at KPS. We are exploring what it means to have a growth mindset this year and how this will support the children to become successful lifelong learners.
We deliver specialist programs in The Arts, Physical Education and Japanese for students in Years 3-5. Our Year 6 students have leadership roles as the graduating class and the Grub Club promotes messages about sustainability. Our school choir performs in the local community throughout the year. We     
I look forward to a fantastic year in which our whole school community focuses on supporting every child in the school to develop as independent lifelong learners and active citizens.
