Orelia Primary School is a school of choice in the Kwinana community. It commenced operating in 1969.
We are a Level 5 government primary school with approximatley 350 students, located south of Fremantle. Our school strives to meet the needs and interests of all students, and reflect the values and aspirations of our school community. Our purpose is to ensure all students leave Orelia Primary School well prepared for their secondary schooling, and have opportunities to develop the skills, knowledge and confidence that they need, to achieve their individual potential and play an active part in civic and economic life.
Orelia Primary School is a member of the Kwinana Federation of Schools which includes: Gilmore Secondary College, Calista PS, Leda PS, Bertram PS, Leda Education Support Unit and Medina PS. The Federation develops and coordinates strategic planning for schools in the community; to maximise achievement for all students and professional development for all staff in all schools.
Orelia Primary School community has recently developed the Strategic Plan for 2016-2018 which has focussed future thinking and directions of our school, incorporating the Department of Education's Strategic Plan for Public Schools 2016-2019 High Performance- High Care and Focus 2016. The collaborative staff planning consisted of rigorous interrogation of student data (which included NAPLAN, Online Entry, Assessment and teacher judgements) review of previous plans and the selection of evidence based strategies for the development of the new curriculum plans, which included new targets for improvement.
During 2015-2016 our staff and community reviewed and adapted it to align with our vision.
