Our History

White Gum Valley was once an important meeting place for Aboriginals and the adjoining Booyeembara Park is reputed to be the birthplace of the famous Aboriginal, Yagan. In more recent times it was inhabited by Australians and post Second World War migrants from Italy and Central Europe. The school was established in 1901 and the original heritage structure has been retained in the recent upgrade of the school's administration block. Much of the history of the school is on display in the new foyer. 

In recent years several classrooms have been added including a purpose built Pre-Primary area. Also the Hazel Orme Community Kindergarten, although managed by the school, is located on a separate site.


The school also has onsite, a Play Group building which has been made possible through shared funding with the Fremantle City Council and the Education Department.


As a result of the recent Federal buildings initiative (BER) the school now has access to two new classrooms as well as a Visual Arts area and Music room.
