It is situated to the south of Fremantle and is on the border of Hamilton Hill and Spearwood with Manning Park just a walk away. The school is surrounded by shady native trees and has two grassed playing fields and multiple play areas within their well developed school grounds. Phoenix Primary School has well resourced classrooms with areas to engage students in their own learning using interactive whiteboards and all the technology and teacher expertise available in the school. All of our curriculum delivery is in line with current Department of Education initiatives and this is supported by an extensive computer network and a Technology Centre. We engage with our students in all of their learning.
Phoenix Primary School has an enrolment of approximately 230 students from 4 year old kindergarten. Our students come from a wide range of cultural backgrounds with approximately 20 nationalities represented in the school population. We like to acknowledge, embrace and celebrate our diversity. We are proud of our students' achievements and celebrate their successes. As a school we maintain contact with students through our alumni and celebrate their careers in engineering, as university lecturers as well as national sporting stars in athletics, football and netball.
The staff at Phoenix Primary School has a range of expertise and promote the vision and educational needs of the school. Our very experienced staff provides a well balanced curriculum for all students. Our teachers work closely with our Learning Support Coordinator to ensure quality targeted programs for all our students with special needs.
Phoenix is proud of our pastoral care programme and nurturing environment, which has been developed over the years. We have a strong academic and social/ emotional curriculum which makes the school environment conducive to student learning. High standards of behaviour are expected and our whole school engagement in the virtues program ensures that student welfare and happiness remains a high priority.
The Arts program, developed by our specialist music teacher, is supported by the School of Instrumental Music. Our choirs sing in events outside the school. We are proud of the sporting achievements of our students through a committed staff effort who have trained our teams for the Glory Cups and athletic success.
Student leadership is promoted through our prefects and house captains. Leadership training and opportunities for self improvement in public speaking are provided through team building days, school assemblies and functions.
Our school is strongly supported by parents and our vibrant growing community. We work in partnership with our community through an active P&C Association and the School Council. Parents are welcomed into the school as authentic partners in their child's education. Thanks to the co-operation between the P & C and the school, we have been able to create the very best learning environment for all our students.
