Parkfield Primary School at Binningup Beach for their PLUS Excursion

Binningup Beach for their PLUS Excursion

Our Year 6 students and teachers travelled to Binningup Beach for their PLUS excursion (Parkfield Learning and Understanding Sustainability).The day involved the students assisting with revegetating the dunes and participating in a beach clean up of the area.

Our amazing students displayed their virtues of Service, Responsibility and Diligence to plant 5106 seedlings in the dunes and collect 631 items of rubbish from the beach.

To top off a fantastic day, whilst collecting rubbish, our students discovered a baby Loggerhead turtle which they rescued and named Squirdle. The students wrapped the tiny turtle in a towel and looked after him until a representative from the Dolphin Discovery Centre arrived to help.

Squirdle was just a few weeks old, weighing 53 grams, and had a missing flipper.  He had likely hatched near Ningaloo Reef and was carried south by the current before being washed ashore.  Squirdle would have probably died from exposure or predation, if it wasn’t for our diligent students.

Thank you to the Shire of Harvey for funding our bus travel to Binningup Beach last week. We are looking forward  to our return visit later in the year to measure the growth of the seedlings planted.

School Overview

Our active school community consists of our Parents and Citizens Association and School Board which is made up of parents, staff, industry and university representatives who are our partners in forging the school ethos and direction.

Our school buildings are of contemporary design with learning areas supporting three to four classrooms each with their own designated Information Technology area.  Specialist facilities are provided for the extensive Physical Education, Music, Science, Japanese and Visual Arts programs.

Parkfield Primary School is situated in a vibrant, modern community which enjoys a wonderful, relaxed lifestyle. It is surrounded by water with the Brunswick and Collie Rivers to the east and south and the Leschenault Estuary to the west.  The proximity to the estuary, rivers and beaches enables staff and students to utilise these waterways for field excursions which supports our commitment to our Parkfield Learning and Understanding Sustainability (PLUS) whole school program.

Parkfield Primary School’s vision is to provide a safe, inspiring and creative learning environment.  We will create opportunities for students to engage in outstanding learning programs, strive for excellence and become active citizens who make healthy and responsible decisions.

Our Mission

Parkfield Primary School’s Strategic Plan 2020-2023 was formally endorsed by the School Board in February 2020.
