From the Principal
Yanchep Lagoon Primary began in 2018 as a result of the splitting of Yanchep District High School into 2 separate schools. The Primary school has remained on the original site and will be undergoing an extensive re-building program commencing in 2019 and estimated to be fully complete by late 2021. The grounds of our school have many large trees which add to the friendly ambience within our school grounds as well as the genuine warm welcome from staff. As a Positive Behaviour School (PBS) we promote an ethos which seeks to acknowledge students for the good things that they do to encourage an attitude that accepts and values positive relationships. The system is built around 4 core values; I am – a Learner, Respectful, Responsible and Safe. We acknowledge students use of these with a Dojo reward system.
Our school has a very experienced and dedicated staff who work tirelessly to ensure that each student has the opportunity to develop the skills and knowledge to succeed in the future. We have a Literacy specialist who supports the ongoing monitoring and improvements in this vital area as well as offering a before school reading club to support students. Our school Chaplain works closely with students to help ensure that they have the emotional support needed as well as providing targeted programs in areas of need for student’s emotional health and wellbeing. This has also been strongly supported with our inclusion in the Health and Mental Wellbeing support program funded through the State Government providing extra financial and staffing resources in this area. Our Learning Support Coordinator oversees the support for our Special Needs students and works with our Deputies in supporting Students At Educational Risk
Yanchep Lagoon Primary provides a broad curriculum and has specialist in PE, Music, LOTE (Indonesian) and Science. We have dedicated Music, Science, LOTE and Art room facilities to support these programs. We also offer at various times after school sport activities, a breakfast club, before school Reading School program and the opportunity for students to participate in a school choir.
The P&C Association Inc. and School Council have very dedicated and active parent members who work hard to supplement our school resources and provide extra curricula support for students. They would of course welcome any new members.
