Principal's Message

Welcome to Illawarra Primary School, an Independent Public School nestled in the suburb of Ballajura, just 17 kilometres North of the Perth CBD. Our school is conveniently located along a regular public transport route and is near to shops and medical centres. We take pride in offering a comprehensive before and after-school facility for students from Kindergarten to Year 6, managed by Camp Australia.

At Illawarra Primary School, we are committed to providing an engaging, safe, and supportive learning environment. Our mission is to empower students academically, socially, physically, and creatively. We aim to instil a sense of purpose and self-worth in our students, preparing them for success in an ever-changing society.

Illawarra Primary School caters to students from Kindy to Year 6, with an enrolment of around 350 children. We offer a range of specialised programs, including Physical Education, Music (featuring a well-performed choir, guitar, and brass programs), Science, Information Technology, and Health. Embracing modern educational tools, we utilise resources such as iPads and Chromebooks across all year levels to engage students in diverse learning styles.

Here at Illawarra Primary School we recognise the crucial role that parents play in their children's education, especially during the formative years. The first years of a child’s education are a time of wonder, excitement, and discovery. To enhance this journey, we encourage parents to actively participate in their children's learning. The Department of Education provide a range of resources, including parent videos, booklets, and factsheets, designed to facilitate learning at home. These resources are tailored for busy families, offering fun and easy activities that can be seamlessly integrated into daily routines, both at home and in the community. Discover more at
