Welcome from the Principal

All students and staff welcome you to Cockatoo Primary School’s website. The school’s staff, with your co-operation and involvement, endeavours to provide a school experience which stimulates learning whilst developing in students, confident personalities and healthy bodies.


Your child’s education is a cooperative venture between home and school. The teachers at Cockatoo acknowledge that parents are a child’s first and most important teacher and provide their children with the foundations on which we build. We like to maintain close links with parents and encourage them to become involved in their children’s learning at school. Having parents active in our school encourages communication between parents and teachers as well as helping to foster a strong community spirit.


This website is designed to provide families with information about the school. A weekly newsletter to all parents will keep parents up to date throughout the school year. Copies of the school newsletter can be found on this website.

The website will also provide information on the many exciting happenings at CPS.


The Cockatoo Primary School community is committed to the goals of providing a safe, happy, respectful and caring environment where children are encouraged to take responsibility for their learning. We provide quality learning programs in all curriculum areas which are designed to cater for the individual needs of a diverse range of students. These programs include extra-curricular, personal development, leadership, language support, developmental curriculum and active after school programs both within and beyond the classroom.


The school structure also provides a range of specialist programs in Physical Education, Art, Music and Japanese. Our students are supported by a caring staff including a Primary Welfare Officer and School Chaplain. Our school values of Organisation, Confidence, Resilience, Persistence and Getting Along underpin all that we do at Cockatoo Primary School.


We have strong partnerships between staff and parents with a high level of parent participation on School Council and the Parent and Friends Association. Cockatoo Primary School’s aim is to develop adaptable, responsible, positive and innovative members of a global and changing world. We value education and instil this belief in our students as they are our priority.


Please feel free to contact the school or myself at any time.
