A Message from Principal Russell Bembridge

Thank you for taking an interest in our school. The philosophy of our school is "Experience the Opportunities".  This whole school approach provides every student with the opportunity to develop academically, physically and socially to their full potential. Nedlands has a culturally diverse student population, making for an environment where students are taught to think globally and appreciate diversity.

In 2013, the school community celebrated 100 years. The achievements included: 4 days of centenary celebrations with an Open Day, book- Bringing our History to Life, staff reunions and an amazing Centenary  Community Concert. This centenary was years in the making and a partnership between the school community, broader community, business and government.  Thousands of people attended the centenary celebrations with many being from the Nedlands Primary School Alumni. They came from interstate and overseas and hold "Neddies" dear to their heart.

In 2014 the Premier's Australia Day Active Citizenship Award for a Community Group or Event by the City of Nedlands and in recognising local achievement was presented to the Nedlands Primary School Centenary Committee for Fostering Australian pride and spirit through active citizenship and outstanding contribution to community.

In conjunction with our centenary the Governor of Western Australia, Mr Malcolm McCusker, praised our "Acts of Service" program.  This initiative aims to encourage and reinforce the value of community service to the students at Nedlands Primary School by encouraging them to complete a number of small acts of service in each of the eight years of primary school from kindergarten to year 6. The school was recognised as Grand Champions for the Govenor's WA Kids Who Give project for the Acts of Service program and fundraising for the Red Cross.

It is through this collaborative approach that we strive to show progress for all students in an inclusive environment, across a range of subjects and learning experiences from Kindergarten to Year 6. This is strengthened by quality staff, a supportive school Board, active P&C Association and partnerships with the University of Western Australia, Nedlands Rotary and local businesses.

Semper Altius - Always Higher
