We all continue to develop our Kaartdijin or knowledge of sustainability and connection to country that will help us all to become respectful caretakers for the natural environment (boodja).
Thank you to everyone who attended and viewed the children’s “Birds of Whadjuk” display.
Student reports are now available. Parents can access their child’s semester 1 report via ‘Connect’. You can find a guide to accessing student reports here.

Ellie’s Biggest Morning Tea
Curtin Primary is a connected, caring community. Together, we build a strong sense of belonging with all our families, students and staff.
This has certainly been clearly evident with the huge support that was shown towards our year 5 student, Ellie, with her recent Biggest Morning Tea for Cancer (her initiative to raise funds for Cancer research). The event was a huge success and we would like to thank you all for supporting Ellie.
Below is a message from Ellie .
Hello everybody, just to let you know we went way past my goal of $300 for The Biggest Morning Tea! It was a great hit! We raised $1356.20!! So, I would like to say a huge thank you to every one of you who took part in my Cancer Council Biggest Morning Tea!
I say thankyou to you all for the amazing effort you put into helping me reach my goal to raise money for research, prevention and support programs for those affected by cancer.
Thanks to you all, Ellie😊
Interschool AFL & netball carnival
Last Friday our students represented Curtin Primary at the interschool AFL/ Netball carnival held at Manning Primary. There were some very tired bodies at the end of the day with our students giving it their all. We were once again very proud of the way our students conducted themselves, displayed fantastic sportsmanship and supported their teammates throughout the entire day.
We commend the five boys for embracing being part of a combined AFL team as well as applaud the efforts of our Netballers. We saw many of our students having a go at a different sport for the first time, well done!
Thank you to staff and Mrs Watts for their assistance with teams on the day and to all of our parents and grandparents who came and cheered our students on.
Netball A – 5th
Netball B – 5th
AFL – 5th
