Principal's Message

As the Principal of Burrendah Primary School, with its well-respected history of providing exceptional educational outcomes, I warmly welcome you to our website. We are very proud to be a high performing school within the local community of Willetton. We are a culturally diverse school community, with representation from over 40 countries and students speaking a variety of different languages. The 'Select Language’ is a translation dropdown menu that is available on each page of the website, if English is not your preferred language. Alternatively select your preferred language using your browser.

We set high expectations of our students and work diligently to safeguard positive emotions across our school community.  Support is provided to an individual child’s well-being by providing a school environment that encourages each child to explore their potential as they work towards achieving their personal best. We gently urge our students out of their comfort zone to attempt new challenges. We encourage our students to develop and uphold respectful relationships with their peers, teachers and the broader community.

While we are growing in size we have maintained our focus on fostering a family friendly atmosphere where parent engagement is valued. We work hard to develop and sustain productive partnerships with our parents/guardians, local schools and businesses.

I look forward to working with the school community to ensure our excellent results continue as together we embed our 2019-2021 School Business Plan’s Connect, Commit and Collaborate focus in the following areas:

  • Student Engagement
    With a focus on individual student achievement and progress, and differentiation of the curriculum to meet individual learning needs. Mental health and wellbeing of students is a top priority.
  • Staff Engagement
    Through the provision of relevant professional learning that builds teacher capacity, leadership opportunities and a collaborative culture amongst staff. A mental Health focus to enable staff to work in an increasingly complex educational environment is paramount.
  • Families and Community Engagement
    Building synergy between home, school and the wider community, extending partnerships beyond the immediate school.
