From the Principal

Thank you for visiting Richmond Primary School’s website and welcome to Richmond in 2019.

We see a positive teacher/student relationship as a key element of student success.  Our goal is always for every child to be happy and calm, in order to achieve their best and to feel a sense of belonging, being and becoming. 

Belonging to the Richmond community and feeling valued; being self-aware, resilient and capable and becoming the best version of themselves, academically, socially, physically and emotionally.

We enjoy the support of a very strong and forward-thinking School Board and an energetic Parents and Citizens Association. These parent groups represent our 700 parents and reflect the strong values of our school community. The principal is actively involved in both groups and they are the main vehicles for parents to be involved in school decision making. There are lots of other opportunities for parents and family members to be involved in the day to day life of the school.

We offer specialist instruction in Italian language; visual art, music, instrumental music and physical education. Some recent highlights have been: Being the 2018 inter-school soccer champions; winning the inter-school cross country meritorious shield; having our art banner displayed on Adelaide Terrace to represent the Town of East Fremantle; having 59 students enrolled in instrumental music in flute, violin, viola, trumpet, trombone, clarinet and cello; and reaching the top five schools world-wide on the Languagenut program in Italian.

Our fourteen classrooms are housed around an attractive quadrangle. The layout means that the school has a real feeling of community among staff and students and the close proximity allows staff to get to know each other, our students and their families well.  We have another two classrooms in our spacious, friendly and child-focussed early childhood centre, which is 200m down the road.

Richmond Primary School offers a broad and inclusive curriculum and a safe, happy environment and we are very proud of our students’ achievements.
