An Independent Public School


To provide an inclusive learning environment for success of every student inthe 21st century.


At Forrestdale we are commited to:

  • Providing a cohesive and respectful environment for all community members to feel valued and safe.
  • Developing the physical, social and emotional well-being of staff and students through inclusive practice.
  • Providing experiences to inspire a life-long love of learning.
  • Community collaborating to actively improve learning and teaching
  • Developing creative and critial thinkers for the 21st century.

Cared for and respected. Challenged and supported. That’s our commitment to our students.

A positive sense of self is extremely important, which is why our students’ wellbeing always comes first. 
We work on the understanding that students who feel happy, safe and a part of the community
enjoy coming to school and this leads to positive results in the classroom. 

Everyone at our school – from the principal to the officer at the front desk – takes on this responsibility
by building relationships with children and their parents from their very first visit to our school. 

We support students to build sound social skills and achieve academic goals.  They have opportunities to apply
what they learn to real life situations, and our dedicated teachers put an incredible amount of effort and creativity
into the experiences they organise for their classes.  These have included publishing a magazine, pitching a new board game, running a cupcake stall, designing play equipment for pet mice and growing vegetables for cooking lessons.  Projects like these get students excited about coming to school. Coding apps on school iPads and interactive touch-typing lessons
further prepare students for life in the twenty-first century.

Our students take pride in their work, feel confident being themselves and build lasting friendships.
We cultivate connections in our local community so students can make meaningful contributions
to society through service and social action. 

Working alongside Perth NRM and Friends of Forrestdale, teachers take advantage of our proximity to
Forrestdale Lake to instil in students a sense of responsibility in caring for the local bushland and native wildlife. 
Students are also involved in Dale Music Festival, Kelmscott Show and Forrestdale Little Athletics.

We regularly invite parents to give us feedback throughout the year so we can improve. 
Our students and staff love our little school – and so do our parents.
