We believe in fostering ongoing relationships and partnerships with key local community members, businesses and organisations to strengthen our connection and understanding of Fremantle. These partnerships allow students to build their understanding and familiarity, which supports their learning and wellbeing:

Stephen Michael Foundation

Our partnership with local Aboriginal charity and community leader the Stephen Michael Foundation allow for culturally responsive leadership programs for our Year 5/6s as well as opportunities to engage in a yearly interschool Indigenous games competition, cultural incursions and our yearly Reconciliation Walk to South Fremantle Football oval.

Perth NRM

Every year we work with Perth NRM to continue our Caring for Noongar Boodjar project. Students learn about caring for the land and water ways around us with expert guidance and knowledge of Noongar elder Neville Collard.

The University of Notre Dame

Fremantle Primary School has a partnership with the University of Notre Dame, Fremantle.

Notre Dame University hold a co-opted position on the Fremantle Primary School Board and provide staff with an array of professional learning in the area of ICT. The university has utilised this partnership with pre-service teachers gaining experience through various practicums at Fremantle Primary School.

Fremantle Dockers Football Club

As part of the official partnership between our school and the Fremantle Dockers Football Club, the school was presented a signed 2017 player’s jersey and a complete set of new Fremantle PS jerseys for our school football team! Thanks so much to the Fremantle Dockers Football Club. GO FREO!

Story Dogs

Story Dogs is a reading support program where selected children read to an accredited dog and its handler. Reading takes place in a quiet area of the school such as the library or verandah outside the classroom. Sessions run for20 minutes long, where each child is one-on-one with the dog team. When children read to a dog the outcomes are amazing:

  • They have FUN
  • They are not judged
  • Their focus improves
  • Their reading skills increase
  • Their confidence soars

Ed Connect

We connect volunteers who want to make a difference with young people in schools who need extra help and guidance.

At EdConnect Australia we change lives.

We bring communities closer together. We are about older generations inspiring the next. We make Australia stronger. It’s inspirational stuff. But there’s so much more we can achieve.

It’s about raising literacy and numeracy standards, but also equipping young people with the life skills they need.

Fremantle Primary moves into its 8th year of partnership with EdConnect and really value our EdConnect mentors and classroom volunteers.

Your Move

We are now a Your Move School! Your Move is a Department of Transport program that encourages students and their families to get active by walking, wheeling or riding to school. These behavioural changes help instil lifelong healthy and positive habits and improve concentration and academic performance for students, while also reducing traffic and improving safety around the school.

Everyone can get involved in Your Move. Do you live too far away? Why not drive to a nearby park or café and then walk the rest of the way? Concerned about safety? Why not join your kids in walking, riding or scootering to school once a week? Small changes still make a big difference. We earn Your Move points by posting stories and photos of our active transport adventures on the website; these can translate into grants to fund active transport facilities and activities for the school and other rewards. If you’re interested in volunteering to be part of our school’s Your Move program, get in touch with our Your Move Champion Fiona Jensen.

Before riding your bike to school, make sure you give it a quick safety check. Learn how by watching this ABC Bike Check video, and checking out some of the great Your Move resources, like ‘staying safe on your bike’.
