|Phoenix Primary School is an Independent public school, situated to the south of Fremantle and near Coogee in Hamilton Hill. Our school currently has 265 children from Kindergarten to Year 6. Our students come from a wide range of cultural backgrounds with approximately 28 nationalities represented in our school population. We like to acknowledge, embrace and celebrate our diversity.
Our specialised team of early childhood teachers and education assistants provide innovative and engaging classes for the children's first introduction to education. The expertise of all staff is apparent as they provide a well-balanced and challenging curriculum for all students. Our experienced staff work collaboratively to ensure quality evidence based programs are taught which target the learning needs of all our students. We have a strong focus on numeracy and literacy, with programs for students who show strong academic talent.
Our positive and challenging teaching programs allow all students to develop the necessary knowledge and skills to become confident and independent learners, becoming purposeful, valued members of the global community and realising their full potential. We are proud of our reputation in providing a safe and nurturing environment whilst offering a diverse range of subjects including music (supported by the School of Instrumental Music), Italian, physical education and digital technologies (including coding), which are taught by specialist teachers.
Our staff are committed to a strong academic and social-emotional curriculum, making our school conducive to student learning and every child feeling valued. High standards of behaviour are expected and whole school engagement in our 'merit awards' and 'values certificates' help students understand the idea of reward and recognition for their efforts. Student welfare and happiness remains a high priority.
We are proud of our students' achievements and celebrate their successes in school and out of school, in their careers and sporting achievements. Phoenix is proud of our pastoral care programme and nurturing environment, which has been developed over the years. Our staff promote our vision of developing within each child resilience and the problem solving skills essential for their future success.
We engage with our students in all of their own learning through an IT rich teaching environment in well-resourced classrooms with wet areas for arts and craft. Outside, our students enjoy extensive, well developed outdoor play areas including a large oval, netball courts, climbing frames and nature based play areas. The school is fully air-conditioned, providing a pleasant learning environment throughout the year.
Our teachers are good teachers. Our staff are good staff. Together with our community we create the best learning environment for all our students.
