The community spirit and strong partnership between parents and teachers have seen Subiaco Primary School go from strength to strength.
Subiaco Primary School was built in 1897. The community of Subiaco has a wide variety of socio-economic backgrounds and family structures and holds an extremely strong sense of ownership and pride towards our school.
School classrooms are housed in the original buildings. The school has a Library Resource Centre, a multi purpose room used for our Art/Craft and Technology and Enterprise Learning Areas and separate Music room. In 2009 the Building Education Revolution maintenance program enabled painting and carpeting of the administration, all classrooms, lower and upper halls, library and music room.
A new four-cluster classroom block was completed for the start of 2011 school year as part of the Building Education Revolution funding. In 2013 a natural playground was built amongst the 100 year old established Moreton Bay Fig trees. It is now a magnificent area for students to engage in creative and imaginative play whilst interacting with nature.
In 2014 our library was extensively refurbished and is now a colourful and engaging space for our students to enjoy.
Our school has a very positive relationship with our Parents and Citizens Association (P&C) resulting in ongoing support for learning programs and enhanced development of the school grounds. On site facilities include a large covered assembly area, tennis/basketball courts and a six lane, 17-metre swimming pool which is maintained by our Parents and Citizens Association.
