Situated within the Southwest Education Region in the city of Bunbury, Carey Park Primary School is a level 5 Primary School located 170 kilometres south of Perth. The School has a current enrolment of 270 students from Kindergarten to Year 6. Opened in 1955 for students in Years 1 to 3, the original structure remained in use until 2000 when the new, state-of-the-art two storey building was completed. Classes commenced in the new facilities at the beginning of the 2001 school year. The school was successful in becoming an Independent Public School in 2013.
Carey Park Primary School is a dynamic public school with a rich history, strong traditions and a proud identity. Our Choose Respect initiative is a whole school focus, immersing the school and community in a culture of respect where everyone treats each other with care and consideration. Community support for our approaches to instilling mutual respect is high, with strong partnerships existing between the school and its wider community. This enables us to get to know our families well and respond to their needs quickly and effectively.
Our school is proud to have a rich diversity of cultures within its community. To support this, the school has developed a strong focus on early intervention practices, with families having access to coordinated early learning, maternal health, parenting support services and programs through the Child and Parent Centre located on the school site.
Student achievement at our school is supported through our specialised and targeted approaches to Literacy and Numeracy, our Positive Behaviour Support Program, increased Education Assistant support time in classrooms, and a highly experienced and dedicated staff. The major strategies implemented to improve student achievement are: the integration of digital technologies across the school; a focus on reducing class sizes; promoting a positive choose respect environment; maintaining a consistent and positive approach to supporting positive student behaviour; and focussing on early childhood intervention in collaboration with our on-site Child and Parent Centre.
We have a strong focus on our school Values – Challenge; Achieve; Respect and Encourage, which underpins our PBS Program. These values promote a calm, supportive, positive and engaging learning environment, which, in partnership with our parents and carers, helps us to provide opportunities for our children to achieve to the best of their abilities.
Carey Park Primary School, together with the school community, strives to create a safe, supportive environment, conducive to providing our students with maximum opportunities for achieving success.
We want students to CARE: to Challenge themselves, to Achieve to the best of their ability, to Respect themselves, others and the environment,
and to Encourage one another to achieve.
A place to call home, generation after generation.
