About Banksia Grove Primary School

Banksia Grove Primary School is located in the heart of Banksia Grove,
8 kilometres east of Joondalup.

It opened as a ‘school in houses’ in 1996 and relocated to its newly constructed permanent school site in 2007. In 2013 it became an Independent Public School. The school has a population of around 520 students from years K-6.

Banksia Grove PS prides itself on being an inclusive school that successfully caters for and celebrates the diverse backgrounds of its students. We are very fortunate to have an amazingly dedicated and professional staff who provide a curriculum that engages and enhances the whole student.

The school actively seeks out partnerships with the wider community in order to enhance the learning outcomes of its students. In 2015, the Child and Parent Centre opened. The centre offers services and activities that support parents and help children develop and learn in their early years. The school will continue its partnership with the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service. This partnership has enabled the school to develop better structures and practices to support students with mental health issues. 2015 has seen the opening of our new, local high school, Joseph Banks Secondary College. Our aim is to establish and maintain close links with the high school in order for a smooth transition of our students.

At Banksia Grove Primary School, our core business is maximizing the learning outcomes of our students. We do this by using the very best data available to us in order to highlight our strengths and areas of need. We target our resources to improve and enhance our learning programs.
