Rostrata Primary School is an IPS (Independent Public School) located in the southern Perth suburb of Willetton and is feeder school for Willetton Senior High School. Rostrata caters for students from Kindergarten to Year 6.
The school has a diverse multicultural population of over 800 highly motivated students, with very supportive parents and is staffed by a team of skilled, committed and innovative teaching and non-teaching staff who provide dynamic and evolving programs to cater for the needs of their students.
Our school believes in providing a high quality education that enables students to achieve their potential; academically, socially and emotionally. Continual academic success is achieved through staff working collaboratively to plan the implementation and effective monitoring of the Australian Curriculum.
The social and emotional wellbeing of students is supported through our CARE Motto and PBS (Positive Behaviour Support School) strategies in developing a common language and high expectations for every student to succeed and accomplish their personal best. Our school Chaplain is also available for student and parent support.
A rounded education is provided through a diverse range of programs taught by specialist teachers. These are the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden, Music (including two choirs, three bands, recorder and string ensemble), LOTE (Italian), EAL/D (English as an Additional Language/Dialect), Visual Arts, Physical Education, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) and ICT (Information and Communications Technology). We are a Teacher Development School (TDS) in STEM with innovation partnerships and projects to develop a range of enrichment opportunities for students.
Parents are an integral part of the Rostrata community and are encouraged to participate. The School Board is made up of six elected parents and five elected staff members, including the Principal. The Board’s role is to promote Rostrata and foster positive relationships between all involved with the school. It also formulates and reviews objectives and priorities for the School Business Plan and ratifies all school policies. The Parents and Citizens Association is open to all parents/guardians of the school’s students. It aims to actively work, in a volunteer capacity, alongside the school to provide and support special and ongoing projects and programs. The Rostrata Dad’s group, part of the Fathering Project, aims to positively promote the important role of fathers and father figures through informal, fun and social activities.
Rostrata Primary School is a caring, inclusive, enterprising and innovative learning community that empowers students to reach their potential and become resilient, independent, lifelong learners.
