About Us - 2018 Annual School Report

Dear Parents & Community Members

I am proud to present the 2018 Annual Report for Perenjori Primary School. As part of the school’s reporting and accountability process, the annual School Report provides you with a summarised account of our school operations and achievements, a ‘snapshot’ of our school’s overall performance in 2018. I am pleased to say that the majority of goals set in the 2016 – 2018 Business Plan have been achieved. The successes of 2018 will be the foundation for building future goals upon and assist in the setting of aspirational achievement targets for future improvement. The development of the 2019-2021 Strategic Plan is now underway.

Our Strengths

Our school has a number of significant strengths which include:

-  An extremely supportive school community

-  Proactive Parents and Citizens Committee

-  Experienced and committed teaching and support staff

-  An interesting diversity of experiences extended to students

-  Adapted educational programs which meet the needs of all students.

-  Amazing Students who care about one another and the school


The school board, as always, has played a positive and active role in determining the direction the school should follow, analysing and evaluating the school business plan.  On behalf of the previous Principal, Miss Karen Marshall, I would like to sincerely thank all board members for their continued support and productive feedback on the management of Perenjori Primary School.


I would also like to thank the P&C committee who have tirelessly continued to be a great asset to the school, raising valuable funds to assist the school in providing students with effective programs and resources. I would also like to show my appreciation for the hard-working staff of Perenjori Primary School. As without their dedication, and commitment success could not be possible.


In 2018 Perenjori Primary School started the school year with 43 students. Staff lead a strong focus on improving Literacy and Numeracy Standards and Excellence in Teaching, which was made evident through the Year 3 NAPLAN results. This will continue to be a strong focus in 2019.


The school engaged in a number of improvements to improve visibility of students in the Early Childhood learning area including removing partitioned walls and relocating cupboards to open up the space. This included replacing damaged floor surfaces. This was completed for the commencement of the new year 2019. Additionally, Room 1 was opened up to include the computer area, providing a more accessible learning area and to make further use of resources. 


Within the playground, students have thoroughly enjoyed “The Wild Side” Nature Play area at the back of the 2 demountable buildings, used during Term 2 and Term 3 (the cooler months of the year) with the use of mud kitchens and natural resources.
