Viewlands Primary School
Grow through learning

Welcome to Viewlands Primary School

Our children are at the heart of Viewlands. We strive to equip them with ambition, resilience, ability, and confidence to become Successful Learners, Confident Individuals, Effective Contributors and Responsible Citizens. Working together as a school community is key to realising our vision and aim.

Viewlands Primary School opened its doors to the children and families of the Viewlands and Oakbank areas of Perth in 1942. It is a “double-stream” primary school, with fourteen primary classes and a nursery class with the capacity of 24 children at any one time. Accommodation is generous with additional rooms and spaces used to good effect. The playgrounds are extensive and have recently been enhanced by the introduction of losse parts to play with. A real hit with the children. On leaving Viewlands, almost all of our children transition to Perth Academy, which, along with Fairview School, share the same campus as us.


This website has been designed to provide relevant information both for current parents and families of Viewlands as well anyone who has an interest in Viewlands and the work of the school. Our twitter feeds, @ViewlandsPS (Primary) and @NViewlandsPS (Nursery), are regularly updated and celebrate the range of activities that we are involved in. The Primary Twitter feed is embedded into this page for easy access.

Enjoy exploring our school on-line!
