School Overview

Beckenham Primary School has been an integral part of the local community for over 100 years, opening in 1912. The school is located 12km from the Perth CBD on the Perth-Armadale train line. Beckenham is a vibrant and nurturing educational institution committed to providing a stimulating and inclusive learning environment for students which is characterised by a diversity of cultural backgrounds amongst our student population.

Our school motto, “Share and Care” embodies the values of tolerance, caring, understanding, thoughtfulness and selflessness which all contribute to a productive and harmonious school climate. The school is fortunate in having a diverse student population with over 40 cultural groups represented.

Understanding and respecting difference in others underpins the school’s 6 Kinds of Best values program.

This program supports students to be:

Kind to others

Kind to the environment

The Community kind

The Achieving kind

The Learning Kind

Kind to themselves

The school offers programs in Physical Education, Visual Art, Music, Kitchen/Garden (Design Technologies), Science and LOTE (Mandarin).

The school actively promotes sustainability with all classrooms assigned tasks that support the reduce, re-use and recycle message. We are an accredited Waste Wise and Water Wise school. The Kitchen and Garden program is aligned to the national Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden program. Children learn the importance of nutrition while engaging with the plant – grow – harvest – cook cycle.

The school’s highly dedicated and professional staff are committed to educating the students in their care. As part of this commitment to our students we offer a strong student services team. This includes a School Chaplain and Student Support Worker offering pastoral care to the students. Recognising that the presence of good relationships between students and staff promotes a safe school environment, a no-blame approach is taken to conflict resolution using restorative practice techniques.

We enjoy strong support from a very active Parents and Citizen’s association providing funding for various projects around the school. Parents and community are also involved in the operation of the school through our School Board.

Beckenham Primary School has spacious grounds including an oval and several designated play areas for various year groups.

Beckenham Primary School is a place where students embark on a journey of academic excellence, personal growth, and community involvement.

We are committed to providing a safe, supportive, and enriching environment that prepares students for the challenges and opportunities of the future. Join us in shaping the future leaders of tomorrow at Beckenham Primary School in Western Australia.
