Welcome to East Kalgoorlie Primary School!
I would like to extend my warm welcome to East Kalgoorlie Primary School and hope you take the opportunity to engage and explore our website. East Kalgoorlie PS is a small school that has a deep sense of belonging. The school has over 140 students enrolled from Kindergarten years to year 6. We also have a strong focus on the pre-schooling year with our KindiLink Program working alongside the Wanslea, Spring into Learning program.
We deliver a strong pastoral care program that not only supports and celebrates students diverse background but also ensures we engage with our community with a strength-based positive approach. We aim to provide quality, evidence-based academic programs to ensure all students are given the best opportunity to reach their full potential. There is a large focus on improvement in reading, writing, mathematics and also we have a strong STEM focus. At EKPS we acknowledge & celebrate Aboriginal culture with students learning the Wangkaja language.
Our school staff are committed to building positive relationships, with the motivation to pursue excellence. Our dedicated staff work together to maintain an environment that is welcoming and caters for every child, every day. East Kalgoorlie PS is governed by a school board that provides governance and school direction as published in the School Business Plan.
Our school values guide the behaviour and expectations of all students, staff and community; at East Kalgoorlie PS, we are
- Positive, behaving in ways that are constructive, optimistic and confident
- Respectful, showing good manners and treating others how you would like to be treated
- Inclusive, including others and treating them fairly and equally

We are committed to preparing students for their transition to High School to ensure they have the skills to develop both socially, emotionally and academically to be successful in a variety of environments. We encourage all parents and care givers to come into our school and meetingful our teachers to develop meaning relationships that contribute to the student’s confidence in their learning.
