Welcome to Broome Primary School

Broome Primary is a great place to work, learn, succeed and belong. 


Broome Primary School respectfully acknowledges the traditional owners of the land and pays respect to their elders past, present and emerging. This includes the Yawuru people on Yawuru land.

Broome Primary School was originally established in 1899. It is a historically and culturally significant school being the oldest established school in the Kimberley region of Western Australia. The school proudly boasts one of the original classrooms dating back to 1901. Due to a fire destroying parts of the school in 2019, the school is currently undergoing a rebuilding program which will include a Broome style cluster of classrooms and a new administration block.

The school currently consists of 17 classrooms, two under-covered areas, two purpose built kindergartens, a library resource room, a canteen and several permanent shaded areas. The school has approximately 400 students and caters for students from kindergarten to Year 6. Students who attend Broome Primary School generally live in the older parts of Broome or the agricultural/semi-rural developments around the Broome town site.

The school actively promotes the history, culture and language of the traditional owners of the land and embraces the multi-cultural background of the many students who have a heritage associated with other countries.

In 2013, Broome Primary School, along with the other Broome government schools (Broome North PS, Broome SHS, Cable Beach PS and Roebuck PS) became an Independent Cluster of Public Schools (IPS).

Established in 1901
