Welcome to our school

Kaya and welcome to Beenyup Primary’s website.

Beenyup Primary is an Independent Public School in Byford, WA, which caters for children from Kindergarten to Year Six. Beenyup proudly opened its gates in 2020. The name of our school acknowledges the original Noongar name of Byford and means ‘place of water’. Our official artwork, created by Rosie Paine (pictured below), tells our story. The central dotted circle symbolises Beenyup Primary, the heart of our community, and reflects the meaning of our name, ‘place of water’. We celebrate the connection between our students, families, educators and the wider community represented as U shapes surrounding our school. The colours depict the Noongar seasons, symbolising the connection with the land.

Our vision is to build brighter futures together through high expectations and belonging so that every child, every day, has the opportunity to find joy, be challenged and experience success.  Our school’s foundation is based on Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) and Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID), with the belief that if we hold all students and teachers accountable to the highest standards, provide academic and social support, then they will rise to the challenge. All members of our school community strive to be Beenyup STARs, that is, to be safe, tough, ambitious and respectful.

It is a great privilege to be the Principal of Beenyup Primary and have the opportunity to lead and work with an amazing team of staff, School Board and P&C, a range of wonderful families and our local community. With a focus on high quality learning and social – emotional wellbeing, the Beenyup school community is dedicated to building brighter futures together for our children.
