Who we are

A strong public education system is the cornerstone of every successful society.

We provide high quality education for children and young people throughout Western Australia, helping them reach their full potential.

Our organisation structure as at 30 June 2016 from our Annual Report 2015-16.

Our schools

We have more than 800 schools in communities across our State – in bustling city and regional centres and in some of the most remote parts of the world. Comprehensive schools, selective schools and education support schools.

As our population grows, we're building new schools and developing state-of-the-art facilities for children to learn in. Modern schools using the latest and emerging technologies.

Each school, like each community, is distinctive.

Parents and communities play a key role in creating a unique ethos for their school. They help shape the school's directions.

The principal selects the best teachers and support staff for the school and funding is driven by the learning needs of students.

Our students

We open our doors to all students.

We provide individual programs for every student – for those who are academically gifted, students with special learning needs, those with a flair for the arts or a passion for sports, and students from vulnerable communities.

Programs that prepare students with the skills, understandings and values to reach their academic and personal potential and contribute to society.

Our people

As the largest public sector employer in the State, our people are our most valuable asset.

Coming from different backgrounds, they bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to our schools.

Our top priority is for every student to be successful and our people go to great lengths to raise standards of student achievement.

They are always ready for new possibilities to enriching classroom learning. They are leaders in educational innovation and reform, sharing their expertise and experiences.

Our commitment

Our commitment is for every child to have a high quality education, whatever their ability, wherever they live, whatever their background.

We are making a real difference to the communities we serve across Western Australia.

Public education. A world of opportunities.
