About our school


Principal Marg Pontin with studentsA message from the Principal

Welcome to our friendly, happy and caring school.

Parklands is a small independent primary school operating since 1998 in Albany, Western Australia. We now have about 144 students enrolled, from pre-kindergarten to year 6.

We pride ourselves on providing a nurturing environment in children's crucial developmental stages, equipping them for learning in high school and beyond. Our kindergarten and toddler programs follow Montessori principles and practices, as well as the Early Years Learning Framework.

Our pre-primary and primary programs are based on the Australian curriculum and influenced by best practices in education.

Our vision is to:

  • Create a safe, cooperative learning community
  • Celebrate individual achievement
  • Foster a lifelong love of learning and a sense of wonder and joy
  • Build respect for self and others
  • Live in harmony with the environment - natural, cultural and social

I invite you to contact us to arrange a visit to come and see for yourself why our students are so happy to come to school each day.

I look forward to meeting you.
