Primary School

The whole school expectations are: Challenge Yourself, Be Safe and Respect. The students are taught what this looks like and practice these skills in class. 

Our Primary classes are made up of 4 multi-age classrooms – K/PP, Year 1/2, Year 3/4 and Year 5/6. Each teacher is qualified in their areas and have the support of an Education Assistant and an Aboriginal Islander Education Officer (AIEO). Students are well supported to learn. 

We work together with students and their families to build strong social skills, good academic skills and a passion for learning and growth. This is achieved through good communication and shared understandings between home and school. 

Students attend specialist classes throughout the week. These include Drama, Sport, Health and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) 

Kindy/Pre-Primary

In Kindy and Pre-Primary at Roebourne District High School we aim to make the early years of school fun and engaging. 

The Kindy and Pre-Primary years are vitally important to our student’s development, building knowledge and skills that support success in future years.  

Students are encouraged in their learning and child development through and balance of teacher directed learning and play based learning. All programs are based around student interests and aim to support each child academically, physically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually. 

We work hard and play even harder. 

Years 1 and 2 

These years are still seen as the early years, focussing on student voice and play based learning. Teacher directed learning increases alongside the student’s ability to concentrate for longer. Students begin to expand the skills learnt so far and develop a deeper understanding of their instruction, both socially and academically. The basic skills are cemented and make a solid base for higher learning. 


Years 3 – 6 

The middle years of learning increase the complexity of knowledge and build on the solid foundation achieved in the early years. Students participate in higher thinking activities and really work to extend their own learning. Teachers work with students to develop more world knowledge and encourage an interest in their world view.
