At Rivergums we believe that every child has the right to the best possible education, and the educational process is best served when the school, the child, the teacher and the parent/carer work together in a positive way to support learning.
Our school aims to provide opportunities for children to develop their intellectual, physical, social, cultural and emotional skills. Students are also exposed to the latest technology, pedagogy, assessment strategies and educational research with a clear focus on the implementation of the Western Australian Curriculum. Pastoral Care is also a key focus throughout the school linking our student services team to enhance our strong commitment to building and supporting a safe learning environment for all our students. Physical Education and Music are our specialist areas with Visual/Media Arts and Health being added in 2017. The use of technology is integrated into learning programs for all year groups as we progress to being at the cutting edge of technology-assisted learning.
Rivergums Primary School has modern state of the art facilities that enhance the learning experiences of all students. Our purpose built art/visual art and music rooms ensure learning experiences in the arts are maximised. Our school assembly area provides a quality venue for our community where students can showcase their learning through a variety of events.
Parents are welcome to be involved within the school. We are very proud of our active P&C Association and School Board who work tirelessly to enhance and support us as an Independent Public School. Opportunities are also available for parents to be involved in special classroom programs, class excursions and a variety of other school activities.
I hope that your involvement with Rivergums Primary School will be a long and rewarding experience. I have no doubt your child will benefit from being at our school.
