Whorouly Primary School places great emphasis and value on being a community school with parents, students, teachers, community members and groups working together to provide a quality education.
Our family nights each term highlight the SAKG, STEAM and our Specialist Programs of Art, Italian, Music and Science and we share our love of literature with a Library After Dark family night.
We collaborate with Whorouly Preschool to provide valuable transition opportunities for local children. Most of our Foundation enrolments have attended our local preschool.
Our school works closely with our local community groups and our local community supports our fundraising efforts. Community volunteers help with Breakfast Club, SAKG, managing our Library, helping in the classrooms and Bike Education.
