Port Pirie West Primary School

Welcome to our website – we hope that it provides a snapshot of our vision ‘A quality learning environment where everyone belongs’. We are committed to providing all students with the academic and social skills that they need to be successful in learning and life – students learn these skills in a positive and supportive learning environment underpinned by our Values of Respect, Responsibility Confidence and Persistence.

PPWPS is co-located with the Port Pirie West Children’s Centre, Port Pirie Childcare Centre and Dental Clinic – together providing a quality education and care setting.

Intervention programs in Literacy, Mathematics and social skills development are in place and specialist teaching is provided in Health and PE, The Arts and HASS. Our school was allocated $1m to support the SA Government commitment to STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). This funding has provided us with state of the art learning areas and equipment to support exciting and successful teaching approaches.

There is also a strong involvement in SAPSASA sport and a wide range of sporting clinics is available in the area. Choir, instrumental lessons and dance troupe are a few of the enriching learning activities that we provide.

Student leadership is encouraged through participation in the SRC. An active Governing Council ensures community participation in current and future planning.

Our Site Improvement Plan has two priorities, the first focuses on Maths and the second on increasing reading achievement.

We welcome your enquiries.
