Education Department of Western Australia

Welcome to Western Australia Schools

Western Australia is the largest state in Australia and covers almost a third of the  continent. Perth is the capital and is situated on the banks of the Swan River in the south-west corner of WA. Perth is also one of the sunniest cities in Australia. It is surrounded by desert from the east and the ocean from the west.Western Australia has a population of around 1.8 million with over a half of it residing in Perth alone.

The Western Australian government school system - The system for the state is a comprehensive one including:

  • Kindergarten and preschool education
  • Primary education
  • Secondary education

The Western Australian Department of Education & Training is the authority responsible for managing this system. The school year is divided into two semesters with four terms and includes a major break between December and January.

Types of schools

International students normally enrol in Senior Colleges if they are aged 16 and over. There are different schools for students with different needs and abilities and it is not easy to categorise them into one large sector.Non-English speaking students are provided with special English language assistance through English as a Second Language programs (ESL).

Curriculum

All WA schools are currently implementing the K-12 framework which is divided into eight key learning areas:

  • Arts
  • English
  • Health & PE
  • Languages other than English
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • SOSE
  • Technology

For Years 11 & 12, there are opportunities for specialisation as far as the choice of  subjects is concerned.

Perth, capital of Western Australia, is closer to South East Asia than it is to Sydney and the state of Western Australia stretches from the Timor sea in the north to the Southern Ocean above Antarctica in the south. Perth is a modern city that sits astride the Swan River, not far from Fremantle and beautiful sandy beaches downriver on the coast. Rottnest Island is a short ferry trip off the coast from Fremantle.

Western Australia’s vastness offers a great diversity of environments and a diverse range of agriculture from cereal and irrigation crops through fruit and vines to open grazing of beef and lamb. Fisheries, forestry and vast natural mineral resources including iron ore, diamonds and natural gas give a good picture of the state’s impressive natural endowments, not to mention the many spectacular and beautiful natural attractions from its beaches and coastline to its deserts and fascinating rock formations. Perth is a cosmopolitan, affordable and friendly city that serves as the hub and centre of the state’s life and activity.

State schools in Western Australia are modern, first-rate institutions with up to date facilities and computer technology. Standards are well-regulated and monitored for excellence at a state and national level. Specialised programmes such as the arts, music, dance theatre and media studies benefit from purpose-built facilities. International students are able to choose from approved schools having available places and homestay placements are provided for those not staying with family or relatives.

The curriculum covers English and other languages, the arts, maths and science, society and the environment, technology, and health and physical education. Education is delivered by university-trained teachers and international students have the assistance of Overseas Student Co-ordinators who assist them with everything from accommodation and living arrangements to succeeding in their English studies and overall education. Progress is monitored with regular testing and Year 12 students can sit the Tertiary Entrance Examination (TEE), which enables them to apply for university admission both around Australia and overseas.

Classrooms are multicultural in composition so that international students can mix with local students from a wide range of backgrounds in a safe and friendly environment that makes study enjoyable and enables the formation of friendships that last beyond the confines of school.
