Upper Swan Primary School aims to provide a positive and safe environment that enriches each individual child’s desire to learn, encouraging them to become happy, responsible, confident members of our community.
Our School motto is Onwards.
We have four factions at the school; each faction has a colour and historical significance in the district.
Belhus - Green Loton - Blue Shaw - Gold Nolan - Burgundy
Early Childhood Area
The Early Childhood Area consists of four classrooms to accommodate the Kindergarten and Pre Primary students. The fenced playground in the Early Childhood Area includes a bike track, 3 x sandpits, swing set and grassed areas.
Years 1 to 6
Years 1 to 3 are located in the "Junior Block" which houses seven classrooms. The 'Junior Block’ has a large multi-purpose central activity area that includes a kitchen. Year 4 to 6 students are located in the Senior Block which houses five classrooms and two modern transportables.
The Junior Block has a purpose built Art/Craft Room that includes a kiln room. The music and drama programs are facilitated in two separate transportable classrooms. The purpose built library has been fully refurbished to suit our student’s needs.
The school has a fully enclosed under cover area where we host many different school events including our full school assemblies.
Four playgrounds and two nature playgrounds are positioned across the school. The playgrounds are separated into year groups, Early Childhood, Years 4 to 6 and Years 1 to 3. The most popular piece of equipment we have is "the spida", which provides students with many to explore its structures. This is suitable for students from Years 4 to 6.
Our nature playgrounds are situated at the rear of the school, the Junior is located behind the Staff Room and the Senior is located at the back of the oval. Nature playgrounds encourage students to use their imagination and play “Let’s Pretend” games.
Parents and students have helped create several environmental areas around the school as part of the schools environmental programs. These include the vegetable garden, worm farm and garden compost compound.
