Principal’s Welcome


Welcome to Piara Waters Primary School. The school was established in 2012 and is focused on ensuring a high-quality education for all of our Kindergarten to year 6 students. As an Independent Public School, we benefit from the strength of a strong public school system, but also have the flexibility to make more decisions locally, better meeting the needs of our diverse community.

Our key values of Respect, Active Participation, Collaboration, Responsibility, and Generosity underpin all that we do.

We have a focus on the success of individual students, and whilst we are a large school (approximately 1050 students), we are committed to knowing, teaching and valuing every child. Everyone should learn, grow and thrive.

The staff are committed to ensuring the very best for students. We are proud of the quality of our teachers and education assistants. Our classroom teachers have a strong focus on literacy and numeracy. Students also benefit from specialist teachers for Physical Education, French, Visual Arts, Drama, Music and Science.

We want our students to be effective and efficient in their learning and we utilize iPads as a learning tool where appropriate. We also teach students digital technology skills so they can be lifelong learners.

The P&C provides strong support to the school and organizes a variety of activities that not only raise funds, but bring our school community together. Our School Board provide governance and oversight to ensure our strategic planning remains focused on the needs of our students.

Parents and carers are most welcome at Piara Waters Primary School and are important partners in the learning process. We value your opinions and are always looking for ways to improve. Please don't hesitate to contact your classroom teacher if you have any questions. Alternatively, you can contact me or one of our deputy principals;

  • Mrs Kylie Gallagher (Kindergarten / Pre-primary)
  • Mrs Jane Weir (Year 1 and 2)
  • Mrs Jill Doyle (Year 3 and 4)
  • Mr Karl Voloczi (Year 5 and 6)
  • Mrs Lisa Skepper (School operations and events)

We look forward to sharing your child’s learning journey and welcome your involvement and contribution to help us to keep making Piara Waters great. We trust you will enjoy working with us, as much as we will with you!

Miss Alison Ramm
