Broome PS is established on Yawuru land and embraces the rich Aboriginal culture, along with the historical and diverse multicultural aspects of the Broome community. The original school was established in 1901 and is the oldest established government school in the Kimberley. The school itself over looks Roebuck Bay and is nestled in amongst tropical gardens consisting of a range of tropical palm trees, boab trees and lush gardens.
Our school provides a range of educational opportunities and experiences for approximately 370 students from Kindergarten to Year 6. The school has adopted the Department of Education’s mantra, “Every Student, Every Classroom, Every Day,” to focus upon high quality education. It is our belief that it is the quality of the teaching and learning programs that will have the greatest impact upon student performance, to ensure students achieve year on year growth.
The school actively promotes a culture that strives to maintain positive and respectful relationships with students, parents and the wider community. Programs delivered by staff are also aimed to promote student self-esteem, well-being and the teaching of sound core values. The four expectations of Care, Respect, Pride and Success form the cornerstone of the school’s values and are evident in the teaching and learning programs throughout the school.
We aim to provide a school community which generates an atmosphere that ensures this is a great place to work, learn, succeed and belong.
