Welcome to Coolbinia Primary School

Coolbinia Primary School is an Independent Public Primary School set amongst native bushland and open spaces of Coolbinia. Enriched by a strong community and a friendly, caring atmosphere, the school has developed close, productive partnerships with a range of organisations. We have a strong connection to our local environment and sustainable practices developing students with a community conscious view.

Our experienced educators work alongside our parents and community, to guide students to be the best version of themselves. Our students are our greatest resource and they are supported in developing the attributes required to become leaders and instilling in them a love of learning.

Acknowledgement to Country

Kaya wanju moorditj maarmans, moorditch yorgas.

Hello, welcome great men and great women. We would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet, the Wadjak people, part of the Noongar nation. Wadjak country extends from Perth and all through the Swan Coastal Plains. It is on this very place we meet today where the Wadjak people have lived for thousands of years and will continue to live for tens of thousands more.

As their elders have stated, we are all a part of this journey together and it is important that we embrace OUR Wadjak culture, with the respect and acknowledgement it deserves. We also acknowledge the contributions of Aboriginal and Non-Aboriginal Australians to the education of all children and people in this country we all live in and share together – Australia. It is a privilege to be meeting on this land.
