Our school is a Health Promoting School and has embraced its motto ‘Growing Together,’ ensuring parents and the school work together to improve student outcomes. The school is very proud it is the school of choice for new families to the community. Located in the suburb of Secret Harbour approximately 55 kilometres south of the city of Perth, Comet Bay Primary School is at the heart of a thriving beachside community alongside the beautiful Indian Ocean.
At Comet Bay Primary School we have high expectations of success for every student. We believe in developing the whole child (socially, academically, emotionally, creatively and physically) so that all our students leave school well prepared for their future. Our highly skilled teachers engage children in learning programs that are adjusted to suit their learning needs. They provide appropriate intervention strategies for those requiring additional help, as well as challenging and stimulating programmes for those children requiring extension.
We have an agreed set of values, a school vision and a school-wide teaching methodology. The combination of these three components provide the school community with both the direction and structure necessary to provide our students with the knowledge, understanding and skills to become lifelong learners and thrive in an everchanging world.
Our use of the Tribes social model helps us create positive relationships between teachers, students, parents and the wider school community. This enhances our inclusive classrooms where students feel safe, have a voice and collaborate positively. The Comet Bay Agreements (attentive listening, appreciations-no putdowns, the right to pass and mutual respect) are modelled and explicitly taught in all classrooms to support our positive school and classroom environment.
Our community takes great pride and care of all our school facilities, which includes an offsite kindy annexe, an out of school hours care program and our impressive produce gardens and kitchen, where our children discover how fruit and vegetables are grown, harvested, cooked and best of all, eaten! Students are often seen caring for our chooks or our fish in the aquaponics area.
Our sustainability focus has seen the installation of 350 solar panels on our buildings with a monitoring system installed to educate our students and community in sustainable practices.
